It is a fancy schmancy thermostat that was designed by a former top designer for Apple (Tony Fadell) which explains the sleek and cool looking design. It is a WiFi enabled device that learns what your habits are and adjusts to accommodate those. After just a week of setting it manually it will start to adjust the temperature to save energy and fit in with what the daily routine around the house is. The plus side is that you can access it from your iPhone with a really great app that allows you to control the thermostat from wherever you are.
The red color denotes that it is heating. When it is blue it is cooling. Whenever you approach it it lights up so you can see what temperature it is at and what it is doing at the moment. Pretty cool, huh? It will be a great thing to be able to have when we have been gone and don’t want to come home to a chilly house—turn the thermostat up or down depending on the season for whatever you choose it to be. Pretty amazing. But perhaps the most amazing thing—–it was installed exactly according to plan and in under the time estimate of half an hour!!! Thank you, God, for being married to an electrical engineer!
The only down side I can see has already been tested……the husband can adjust it while I am at home and he is not—–making me wonder why the heck I am so cold all of the sudden……funny,funny man.
