My child recently got me a smart thermostat for the holidays. I know nothing about modern technology. So, my child patiently explained how the current temperature control smart thermostat worked and the advantages of it. I listened quietly pretending to comprehend all that he said when in the back of my mind, I was already saying to myself that I will never use this fancy thing. My child installed on our phone the program needed to operate the smart thermostat. He showed me how to launch the app and check the temperature setting and change the temperature if I wanted. And then he left, leaving me here with a component that was smarter than I could ever dream of being. I felt like it was taunting me every time I would walk past it. Then in late January all of us experienced a blizzard in our area. My wife and I were at work when it hit and had to cautiously creep back home during the storm. Suddenly, I remembered our smart thermostat and realized I could log in and crank up the heat at home ahead of time, so that it would be genuinely comfortable when all of us arrived. I was genuinely proud of myself when I successfully changed the temperature of our house. It was a great feeling.
