I don’t guess who is in charge of marketing around here, but they really need to reconsider the way they are advertising this stupid piece of plastic. Apparently some people seem to believe that this dumb appliance is going to revolutionize their household, their lives, as well as the whole world, but those folks must be incredibly dense! From what I can tell, there’s nothing intelligent about this stupid rectangle or the effect it’s having on my life. I’m talking, of course, about my up-to-date “smart” thermostat. This thing was supposed to save myself and others from abundant energy bills, uneven air temperatures, as well as headaches in general, but instead I’m only tormented by the crazy indoor air temperature control system. To begin with, the smart thermostat operates via Wi-Fi, which is to say that it doesn’t operate at all. The air quality control disconnects from my furnace as well as AC all the time, meaning I have to manually reprogram the whole central heating as well as cooling system. Secondly, the touch screen monitor does not seem to believe my fingertips, as well as I have to pound on the home screen to make any Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C changes at all, but maybe it’s because my fingers are so chilly from lack of heat – who knows. Lastly, the smart thermostat does not like to communicate with my phone app, so I have to manually adjust the indoor air temperature settings most of the time. At this point, there’s nothing smart about my thermostat or the arduous process of trying to use it. My energy bills are just as high as ever, as well as my blood pressure is much higher.
