I don’t trust my smart thermostat, but my wife made me get one. My wife has wanted a smart thermostat ever since she heard about these new smart thermostats. At first, I thought that my wife was going to let this go. Sometimes, she wants something for a few days, and then, she forgets about it and wants something different the next day. My wife is definitely the spender in our family, so we have a rule that you are only allowed to buy something if you have wanted it for at least 6 months if it was considered a purchase over $100. Since smart thermostats are pretty expensive, I knew that this rule would apply. I figured that my wife would realize that it would be silly to spend so much money on a thermostat and that she would eventually move on to something better. Unfortunately, my wife never changed her mind about the thermostat. She even made some money on the side so that she could buy the smart thermostat herself since I didn’t want to spend so much money on a thermostat. In the end, I had to let her get the thermostat. However, I don’t like the smart thermostat. Technology has caused me a lot of trouble in the past, and I am not very good at using these new phones. I know that I am going to have a ton of trouble using the thermostat. I hope that my wife learns how to use it. I just don’t trust the smart thermostat because I am afraid that someone is going to hack our HVAC units and bother us by turning them off or adjusting the temperature.
