Smart technology is beginning to envelope every industry that sells consumer products.
I was amazed when I saw a smart refrigerator for the first time when I was browsing the appliance store for a new washer and dryer combo.
When I bought my air purifier, the model I wanted also has the ability to connect to your home’s wifi and can be controlled with an app on your phone. If you want to change the fan speed or turn the UV light on or off, you can do it on your phone wherever you have internet access. But there are other interesting smart devices as well, like smart watches, smart cars, and smart keychains. The ability to seamlessly weave your life into the digital network is advancing every year. Since I’ve struggled to maintain my energy bills with my HVAC system running all year long, I decided to give it a shot and purchase a smart thermostat. I was excited at the thought of having lower electricity bills in the summer from the thermostat telling the air conditioner to run for the proper length of time. If you aren’t wise enough to adjust the temperature throughout the day to reflect temperature changes outside, you could leave the air conditioner running for long cycles to maintain a lower temperature. This will put stress on the a/c while burning through electricity in the process. I love how my new smart thermostat determines a smart and energy efficient cooling cycle and enacts it. I don’t have to do all of the thinking alone, and I’ve seen a significant drop in my electricity bill since I had this new smart thermostat installed.
