My mother has recently retired from her job. She lives all by herself plus enjoys staying active. She is quite vibrant for her age. Recently, she made the decision to transport from a cold region to a place with much warmer temperatures. The transition has been especially welcoming for her. Due to the extra time she now has, she has started to travel plus take up new hobbies altogether. One of her new hobbies happens to be gardening, and specifically, she grows herbs. I visit her often to help her with household plus yard repair. One of my preferred things to do is to find technology to help make her life a great deal easier. With her active lifestyle, I wanted to introduce her to the benefits of a smart temperature control. I had a professional from our local Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company come to her household plus explain the technology to her. She expected to have to master how to operate a complicated heating plus cooling device plus was pleasantly surprised to learn that this was not going to be the case. The repair professional explained that there were basically 2 types of smart temperature control devices. One temperature control learns from your cooling plus heating behavior plus the other connects to the internet for remote management plus programming. There is also the choice of purchasing a temperature control that happens to be a hybrid of the two. She had just gotten used to her new cell phone plus was not keen on the whole idea of having to control or program her Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C device from it. So, the option that would adjust itself based on her temperature requirements appeared to be the best option. We had the repair professional install the smart temperature control that same day.
