The smart thermostat is a must have, it senses what you’re doing in the house, warming up the house before you get chilly or cooling it down before you get hot. Manual changes actually teach smart thermostats your personal preferences. Some models use information from local weather stations to create ideal heating and cooling schedules via Wi-Fi.

  1. I love the high tech features! Especially the fact that you can preset them from anywhere. Opening and closing window shades remotely. Never again coming to an unlit home at night. And all the other cool modern conveniences. Very good article!
