I wish I could purchase a Smart Thermostat. A friend visited our home recently plus started making some comments on our home a/c, which was keeping the beach house steadily cool during the scorching August weather. He brought his iPhone plus started talking to Siri, the artificial intelligence plan for his phone and tablet. The people I was with and I joked around with Siri for a while, then our friend started telling myself and others a story about a Smart Thermostat he had seen at his brother’s house. I had never heard of a Smart Thermostat until my friend told me. I had heard of smart cars plus smartphones, however this was news to me. My friend explained that a smart thermostat was a temperature control with Wi-Fi that could be operated by an app on my smartphone. I thought, wouldn’t that be marvelous! I could regulate the temperature control from another room or even another town. At first, I thought this might make myself and others appear to be kind of lazy. But then I thought about it some more, plus it seemed like a good idea to have a Wi-Fi a/c plan in our home. Often I am intensely absorbed in my schoolwork or job, such as taking an online timed quiz, plus it is not convenient for myself and others to get up lose my train of thought. Also, I might be able to finally end this small war with my flatmate over the temperature control. My flatmate appreciates the beach house a little warmer than I do, plus I can’t keep getting up to turn the settings on the temperature after he adjusts it to where he wants it to be. A Smart Thermostat may be just the thing to make our life a little more effortless.
