There are so many new gadgets on the market that are becoming smarter and smarter. From smart watches to “Google Glass” our lives are becoming easier and more dependent on new gadgets. Even common household items are developing into savvy tech gadgets.
I’m sure everyone has had that feeling, especially during winter, where their body feels like an ice cube after being in the Antarctic Melbourne winds all day and you just want to defrost at home. “If only the house was already pre-prepared to optimum temperature before you walk in the door” you might say. Guess what, there’s a handy gadget for that. The Nest Learning Thermostat is a little device that can sit anywhere in your house and regulate the temperature, even when you aren’t home.
The Nest Thermostat learns what temperatures you like at certain times and after a few days makes a personalised schedule unique to you. It can all be controlled from an app too! The app allows you to control the temperature when you aren’t home. Features like this are so helpful when you are out and about or even have pets at home.
