A couple of months ago, my partner plus I visited a friend out of state, however they are one of our most beloved friends, so the people I was with and I stayed in their guest room; While the people I was with and I were there, they introduced us to the technology of smart control units. At our house, the people I was with and I had just the typical control unit that you adjust from inside the lake cabin with no special features. We were shocked when it came to all the features that this smart control unit had. The first feature that the people I was with and I liked is that you can control the control unit from your phone. When the people I was with and I were out of the cabin doing activities, they had set the control unit to a higher temperature, however by doing this, they seemed to be saving tons of energy. Close to fifty minutes before the people I was with and I would head back home, they would simply adjust their control unit from their cell cellphone. When the people I was with and I arrived back, the air conditioner was at the perfect temperature. Along with the fact that it was programmable in this way, however you could also set the control unit on a program for your month. My buddy had explained that the control unit is set based off of when they will be home, in an attempt to maintain a comfortable temperature in the hours back at home. The people I was with and I loved an unbelievable week of perfect temperature control with our friend. When the people I was with and I arrived home, our common control unit just did not seem the same. We made the choice to update our control unit as well after this visit, then it has been a couple of months now, plus I must say that the smart control unit was an unbelievable technological addition to our home.
