Technology these days is vastly superior to anything I would’ve expected in my lifetime.
When I was a kid, I grew up with a massive handheld gaming system that played 8-bit games.
Phones had cords that were connected to the walls, and the internet was nothing more than a science fiction concept. I love seeing all this amazing technology today, especially when it’s applied to something very functional and easy to use in the household. The perfect example of this would be the smart thermostat, which I believe is one of the most incredible and versatile innovations in the HVAC industry. I remember the old dial thermostats from when I was young, and how they were rarely accurate or responsive. Today, the smart thermostat has pinpoint accuracy for determining the temperature in the house, and can even control the HVAC system without your presence! Using a process built on learning preferences, a smart thermostat can establish what you want to see out of the heating and A/C system. If that wasn’t sweet enough, the smart thermostat can connect to the wireless network in your home. That means it can be controlled remotely from anywhere, as long as you can access the app that controls the smartphone! I think that’s just amazing. I recently bought one of these smart thermostats when my old digital thermostat shorted out during a storm. I bought it initially expecting that I’d have to bring it back, but it was very easy to use and set up!
