Does your Thermostat do this?

Homes are getting smarter and this includes Thermostats. These thermostats help reduce energy waste which in turns reduces your energy costs. There are various models out there to pick from. Many of them monitor the weather outside and adjust the heating/cooling in your home accordingly. Most can detect if someone is home, keeping its occupants comfortable when they are home and saving the homeowner money when they aren’t. The Ecobee3 can even detect which rooms are occupied and adjust accordingly, now that’s smart!

This one can be controlled from your phone using the companion app, a remote control that comes with it or voice controlled using Alexa technology. The Honeywell Touchscreen Thermostat even tells you what the humidity level is…. Ladies, that means that we can know what kind of hair day we can expect by looking at the thermostat. This will save you from blow drying and straightening your hair just to put it in a bun. I could get behind this thermostat.
