Thermostat Stories April 22

If we’re being honest, we’d all likely agree that a large majority of the smart home gadgets that we add to our homes are there for sheer convenience. This isn’t a bad thing at all, but it’s certainly worth calling out that some solutions actually yield an overall savings when opting for a smart equivalent of an otherwise standard device.
