As technology grows in day-to-day life, we are leaving behind the days where you need a palatial mansion or a high end luxury car to have some of the finer things in life. Even most entry level cars now come with things like Bluetooth accessibility for hands-free cell use or rocking your favourite mp3 playlist. Great technology is starting to come standard in a modern townhouse in Saskatoon as well, with features like the Nest Thermostat, a product on the forefront of home comfort technology.
The Nest Thermostat is a cool-looking, circular interface that looks like it came right out of a sci-fi movie. It’s the only thermostat that actually learns from you. You know how you like it warm and toasty in the house during the evening, but don’t mind the temperature dipping to save heat once you’re under your thick bed covers? Nest can learn that by paying attention to your preferred temperature and environment. It only takes about a week to programs itself via an auto-schedule function. And if you’re going on holidays and won’t be around for a week, the auto-away function saves energy by automatically turning itself down. And when you see the green Nest leaf, it’s the system’s way of showing you that you’re making a smart energy choice, so it help you save money and stay green.
Last but not least, one of the best parts of the Nest system is the remote control. Like everything else these days, you can control the system from your smartphone, laptop, or tablet with wi-fi control. So if you’re sitting on the couch and you don’t feel like getting up, but notice a chill in the air, you can adjust the settings without moving. The future is here! And it’s making the room pretty darn comfortable.
