I’ve been a Landlord for a few years now. My hobbies include gaming and technology (can’t remember how many times I’ve been to the gadget show live!).
I’m sure you’ve all seen that automated thermostats are now rapidly becoming a “thing”, a lot of this new technology seems to be gradually getting smarter. I’ve looked at so many companies who supply these thermostats, like Hive, Nest, Honeywell, Heat Genius etc.
What I’m looking for is a fully automated heating system to trial on one of my properties. If it works out, then great I can slowly introduce it more and maybe get one for my own private property, and if it doesn’t then oh well, it’s not the end of the world!
The closest I’ve seen to a fully automated system is the Heat Genius. It’s not completely automated but it can do things like learn a users heating behaviour, and also it uses weather data to turn rooms on later on warmer days.
But anyway, the main selling point for me is that all thermostats allow the user to control their heating remotely through the internet.
What do you think? Would you see yourselves using devices like these now or even in the future sometime? Are there any Landlords that currently use an automated thermostat? Would love to hear what everyone thinks!
