Continuing our series on home automation, we focus on thermostats. Replacing a traditional thermostat with a smart one gives you a couple of advantage.
Installing a smart thermostat is a doable DIY for homeowners. Do your research to determine which brand is right for you. A good hint is to check to see if the company is committed to keeping their software and app up to date.
As a Baby Boomer, a smart thermostat seems like a good investment as I age in place. The convenience for me would be the selling point. The ability to program it via an app whether on a phone or laptop would be a selling factor for me. No more coming home to a house that is too hot or too cold and no more getting out of bed to raise or lower the temp! That alone is worth it!
