I have been using digital thermostats for more than 10 years and have never been happier. I get to customize my room temperature while traveling, and it’s my favorite way to adjust from place to place.
Emerson digital thermostats are like the coolest thing in the kitchen. I’ve recently purchased one for my house and it has been a life-saver. Now I can use my phone to control my kitchen environment from anywhere, even after I’ve left the house. I just plug my phone into the wall and use my iPhone’s built-in thermostat to adjust the temperature.
My previous home automation systems weren’t that powerful and I had to buy a new remote for my Samsung mobile phone to adjust the room temperature. I didn’t like that I now needed to plug my phone into my wall. But I’m really, really happy with my new Emerson digital thermostat. The remote is easy to use, and I only have to set it to every time the room temperature goes down for 20 minutes or so.
The thermostat is a great tool to use in your home, but it comes with a downside. When you set it to every time the room temperature goes down for 20 minutes or so, it’ll only last 20 minutes. So if you want to set it every two hours or so, you’ll have to buy another remote, and that’s not worth the extra expense.
You can set your thermostat to turn on and off with two buttons, and each button also has a separate brightness setting and a separate temperature setting. It will be pretty bright for the first 20 minutes or so, then dim and have a low light setting for the next 20 minutes, and then dim again and have a high light setting for the next 20 minutes. I don’t know what the temperature setting is for the low light setting, but I’m guessing it’s not warm.
That is a cool effect, and its a nice feature if you’re using this with your home’s thermostat. But, the only time it’s important to me is if I’m trying to avoid having the thermostat set to the lowest temperature that it will handle, which is why I was excited to learn its settings are adjustable.
The thermostat is an automatic temperature control. As a user, you set the temperature and it adjusts based on the location of your home. It is not smart enough to let you know just how cool a temperature you are currently using or how hot it will get.
But, it is smart enough to let you know if you’ve been using it for a long time and it is currently set too high. Like, a long while.
It is not smart enough to adjust itself to your precise temperature. You probably don’t need it to. But it’s smart enough to let you know when you’re using it way too hot or way too cold.
The thermostat is a smart thermostat. It is not smart enough to tell you whether you are using it too hot or too cold. And if it is smart enough to tell you that it is too hot, it is not smart enough to tell you that it is too cold.
