My partner and I were walking through the mall looking for a gift for my friend’s birthday which had been coming up. I was clueless about what to get him, as he ended up being a notoriously hard person to shop for. So I was on the lookout for something that I knew anyone and everyone might use. Something very universal but also somewhat personal. I stumbled towards a tech store and saw a few interesting gadgets, but then I spotted a brilliant thermostat and became instantly amused. I talked to an employee and he laughed and told me all about it. He told me that it was a smart thermostat which is installed in the house and lets you sync your smartphone to it so that you can control the temperature from at any place with service. Even when you’re not home, you’ll be able to turn up the heat or the air conditioning so the house is the proper temperature after you get there. It also gives you room by room control if you don’t want to blast the air conditioner in every room you’re not using. This saves on electricity bills, making the smart thermostat essentially an investment. I fell in love immediately and thought this was the gift to get this individual. However, I ended up buying two because I just had to get one for my home also. I’ve had it for a couple of months now and I love it, my friend who I gifted one to loves his as well.
