I am a bit of a technophile, if that is a real word… Since the laptop didn’t underline it with a squiggly line, that means it is a word! You see what I mean, I just care about current technology so much! Why bother grabbing an old fashioned dictionary and looking something up, especially a word that is actually pretty new? My devotion all things technological goes from my automobile to my job to my new home life; it extends into every area of my life! I live alone, however thanks to my new neighbor Alexa it doesn’t assume so lonely any more. Recently I connected my central Heating plus A/C plan up to my Alexa voice recognition program I run at home, and it is nothing short of amazing. Since last week, I have been playing with my new smart temperature control unit, and show no signs of getting tired of it… When I first installed it, I had to program a lot of my basic preferences into the smart temperature control unit, which I was able to do with a smartphone app. Then I could control every aspect of my comfort with voice commands after I connected it to Alexa, using another app. I can adjust the temperature, bring up a rundown of statistics on power usage and air quality levels, and so much more. I actually should not be turning the A/C on and off as much as I do, however I am so delighted just playing with it! I just found out I can turn on 1 air vent at a time if I want; this is just so cool to me.
