Both my girlfriend and I are huge fans of technology and innovation and we are constantly “keeping up with the Joneses”, as they say. We’re always on the lookout for the newest information on technology and new products. Some might consider this a fault and that we’re tied up with material things, but we don’t see it that way. My fiance and both of our siblings like to stay up-to-date on all of the things we can do with technology. Our up-to-date cell phones can actually recognize our faces and unlock the screens simply by viewing our faces or hearing our voices. It’s fascinating that it can literally recognize our key features, despite us changing our appearance by wearing glasses or other things on different days. We’ll be installing smart control units to connect to our thermostats in our home next week. We’re so excited about it. There has been too many days when we have forgotten to turn off the heating or air conditioner before leaving the house for work or an event. With how extreme the temperatures can be in our neck of the woods, the energy bills can actually add up over time and be very high. It will be refreshing both on my wallet and on my skin to have the air conditioner or heater at a comfortable temperature when I walk in the door. If I know my schedule has changed since setting the thermostat in the morning, I just use my phone to change it straightaway. Technology is so fascinating, and even though we love it for its innovations, it also helps us save money. Who doesn’t like that?
