Machine controlled HVAC

You know, it amazes me when I see the advances in technology that are available to consumers today.

I used to suppose that the concept of a laptop was amazing, but now everyone uses tablets & smartphones to get work done! Just as well, many people also care about the luxuries & conveniences that come with automating systems in their home.

Some people have their light fixtures, their power supply, & even their Heating, Ventilation, & A/C systems automated by numerous programs, for my friend Jack, he has a smart thermostat running in his home at all times! He didn’t buy into automated lighting systems or super-specialized security systems either, although he firmly believes that his smart thermostat is the key to saving him hundreds in energy bills every week. I can see why, too – he showed me how this smart thermostat can learn what he likes, & run based on when he’s home! Plus, it carefully adjusts the temperature up & down, rather than forcing it to drop or increase by several degrees in an hour. The majority of utility bills are from cooling or heating a space that isn’t occupied, & the smart thermostat handles that perfectly! The only thing he doesn’t care about about the smart thermostat is that he doesn’t have a Wi-Fi network in his home. I suppose – how barbaric, right? Well, he wants to get a wireless network setup in his place soon, as I explained to him that these smart thermostats are supposed to work remotely, too! I hope he gets a single soon as well – I live close enough to be able to leech off his Wi-Fi!
