What is a Smart Thermostat

Heating systems have not typically been associated with smart technology.
The past few years, however, have seen a real explosion in terms of smart heating or smart thermostat technology. Why is this? Well there are a number of reasons.
Firstly, the price of energy has skyrocketed by almost 170% in the past decade. Smart thermostats are an important step towards creating smart homes and helping consumers better manage their energy costs. About 60% of household energy is consumed through central heating.
Secondly, the popularity of smart devices, such as phones, tablets and desktops, has made home automation technology much more practical and affordable.
