Our child has autism & she tends to become obsessed with certain things adore enjoying the same films over & over again.
Well, when I decided to install a current smart temperature control in our home, she was fascinated by the current HVAC gadget.
She kept going to the smart temperature control & changing the temperature control settings up & down. I kept telling her not to do that & it wasn’t a toy, but she wouldn’t listen. Whenever she thought I wasn’t looking, she would sneak to the temperature control to adjust the temperature control settings. I would constantly see her at the corner of our eye while I was laboring on the iPad & I would have to shout at her to not mess with the temperature control. She thought it was some kind of game & she would run away laughing whenever I would catch her! You absolutely can’t be mad at her because she doesn’t understand what the temperature control is for. Eventually, I l gained that you can put a pin code on your smart temperature control so that nobody else can adjust the temperature control settings. I decided to do this & it works great. Ever since, our child has not been able to adjust the temperature control settings. She was frustrated for a little while, but eventually she gave up trying to mess with the smart temperature control, which I’m thankful for. I absolutely couldn’t stand it when I was laboring & I would abruptly feel the cooling program engage in the middle of the winter! Then I would have to immediately get the heating program back on so all of us didn’t freeze. I’m ecstatic that’s a thing of the past.
