I have a smart thermostat and I really love the way it works and how it has made running my central heating and air conditioning system much easier.
Though I have to say it can sometimes get annoying when the smart thermostat does not work right.
It sometimes has issues communicating with the app on my cell phone that controls the smart thermostat from virtually anywhere on the planet. I use the app on my cell phone to turn on my central heating and air conditioning system while on the way home from somewhere. When I am not at home I shut off the heating and cooling system because it saves on energy use. But when the smart thermostat does not want to communicate with the app on the cell phone it almost makes me regret having the smart thermostat and makes me think about wanting to just go back to the old standard thermostats. Having a dial thermostat or a digital regular thermostat did not propose these problems. Because it was cut and dry. You turned it on, set the temperature and that was it. And when you did not need heating or air conditioning you simply just turned off the central heating and air conditioning system. If I have to do the same exact thing with having a smart thermostat because it won’t do its job with the app on my cell phone, then what on earth is the point of even having it? I will wait and see if I can get the heating and cooling company to look into these issues before getting rid of my smart thermostat.
