Is it Me, or is it Hot in Here?! (& Win $100!)


    I don’t know if it’s my ‘mature’ age, but I feel like I’m always asking the people in my office, the passengers in the car, and my family at home….‘Is it me, or is it hot in here?!’
I don’t think I’ve entered the hot-flash phase of life yet!!

    In order to keep my not-hot-flashes at bay, we set our thermostat pretty low at home. Texas Summers can be pretty brutal, but the electric bills are even worse! So we’re forced to turn the air conditioning up before we leave each day, and come home to a warm, stuffy house. Ick.

   If only someone would invent a thermostat you could control from your phone or computer, so you could adjust the temperature before you get home. Wouldn’t it be so cool if it were voice-activated, too, and you could just tell the thermostat that you wanted it warmer or cooler? Without even having to get off the couch!?

    Well guess what? Someone did invent the smartest, coolest (#punny) thermostat ever…Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control!

   This new gadget is on its way to me, and we are geeking out with excitement. It looks really fancy with a customizable touch screen, but they swear it’s super easy to install.
Fingers crossed!

    I can’t wait for cold Winter mornings when I wake up and tell it to warm the house…while I’m still snuggled under the covers! Or when we take vacations, we can use our phones to adjust the temperature to how we like it before we arrive home.
See, totally geeking out.
    Wonder if I can tell it to make dinner?
    Or walk the dog on rainy days for us?
    Oh, or how about choose the winning lottery ticket!?

  3. I agree about the brutal Wisconsin winters, although we live in Iowa. It is so hard to get up when it is that cold here. I would use it to warm the house also.

  10. What a jewel! Also living in Texas, where the weather can change depending on the time of day, I would love to have this and tell it what to do!! Especially to turn on in the summer to cool the house down or warm it up before I got home in the winter! I REALLY hope I win! πŸ™‚

  11. I would use it to adjust temps when our running errands. It would be great to come home to a cool house after being in and out of the hot car.

  12. I'd like it to have the house the perfect (cool) temp when we all get up in the morning. In an 'only if' kind of way, I'd like it to open and close all the blinds in the house for me so I didn't have to do that job every single morning and evening. #firstworldproblems.

  45. I would have it set at about 65 degrees at 10:00 p.m. and at about 6:00 a.m. set it for 68 degrees and 72 degrees at noon. Wisconsin winters are way too cold for me! Will it start my coffee pot for me too?:)

  58. Oh I would love to win this! We are already planning to install one when we finish the restoration of our house. Our house is 111 years old, and the last thermostat was put in many decades ago! I would love to set it to either cool off or warm up late in the afternoon before we get home from work.

    This would be a most convenient gadget to regulate the air during our hot Vegas summers that seems to be never-ending! I believe this to be especially convenient to me as I am very short and as always, when the thermometer was installed in the wall it was made for a man's size and I can not see the top to gauge the temperature. So I am constantly fighting with the temperatures being too cold or too hot. A voice controlled thermometer would be the icing in the cake! Thanks for the opportunity to win, Cassie!
