Upgrading to a WIFI control device has made a immense improvement in the comfort as well as efficiency of our home. The people I was with and I were getting by with an old, plastic control device with a dial that needed to be manually turned. I’d need to remember to make an adjustment to the control device before leaving the condo for task in the morning. If I forgot, I’d spend money to heat or cool an empty lake condo to the ideal temperature all morning long. If I managed to make the adjustment, I’d come lake condo to either a super frigid or terribly overheated house. Although the current control device cost myself and others several hundred dollars, it was worth it. The smart control device allows myself and others to customize the display, as well as the menu is elegantly user-friendly. It also features learning capability, which made it super self-explanatory to program. For the first month after installation, the control device kept track of every adjustment the people I was with and I made as well as automatically created a schedule. Now, I rarely need to touch it. If there’s a change in our schedule, I can access the control device through an app on our smartphone or PC. It doesn’t matter if I’m tucked in bed, running on the treadmill, stuck at task or away on vacation, I can make changes with just a tap of our finger. Plus, I get all sorts of helpful information. The control device tracks our energy use as well as provides tips to trims costs. It sends myself and others alerts when it’s time to change the air filter, or if there’s a temperature fluctuation or power outage. One of the greatest features is voice command. I can simply give the control device a direction, as well as it reacts accordingly.
