I guess smart devices are pretty awesome. I also guess it’s absurd how fast technology has exploded in the last 20 years. I can remember a time when PCs were large and seriously durable and texting was this current thing. The PCs were technically small ipads back then, they sure were a far cry from the smartphones that we prefer this week. If you told me that we would one day be able to browse the internet and have all sorts of entirely cool apps and games on our cell PCs, I would be amazed. Now we all take that for granted. Because of my interest in smart devices, I was delighted to hear that smart control units worth a thing. When I first heard about smart control units but had no system 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 and relevant way. Smart control units go one 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 equipment and the control equipment will adjust itself accordingly. The smart control equipment can also be manipulated from your smartphone or tablet, so that you can adjust the temperature and other settings from wherever you are, whether you are at home or not. Smart control units seem to make life so much easier and I cannot wait to get one for myself!
