I guess smart devices are pretty awesome. I also guess it’s ridiculous how fast technology has exploded in the last 20 years. I can remember a time when cell phones were large & severely durable & texting was this new thing. The cellphones were technically small laptops back then, they sure were a far cry from the smartphones that all of us appreciate this week. If you told me that all of us would a single morning be able to browse the internet & have all sorts of really cool apps & games on our cell cell phones, I would be amazed. Now all of us all take that for granted. Because of my interest in smart devices, I was glad to hear that smart control units worth a thing. When I first heard about smart control units however had no idea how they would work, I was pondering what exactly would make them “smart.” I did not guess that I would need to surf the web or play games on my control unit! It turns out that smart control units are smart in a far more practical & relevant way. Smart control units go a single step beyond programmable control units in that they can eventually learn the habits that you exhibit in the settings that you schedule on your control unit & the control unit will adjust itself accordingly. The smart control unit can also be manipulated from your smartphone or tablet, so that you can adjust the temperature & other settings from wherever you are, whether you are at home or not. Smart control units seem to make life so much easier & I cannot wait to get a single for myself!
