Timbers & Tech: Smart Thermostats

While many cabin goers feel like a weekend at the cabin should be a departure from city life, there are a few pieces of lake friendly tech that can make your vacation time that much more stress free. One of them is the smart thermostat.

A smart thermostat is a must for areas like northwestern Ontario, where the cost of heating your cabin in the winter can reach astronomical heights. Smart thermostats not only heat your home more economically, they learn your behaviours and adjust their daily heat levels to reflect your own patterns.
Additionally, any cabins that have WiFi don't have to worry about coming into a frigid cabin, or constantly second guessing if they remembered to turn the heat down on their way back to the city. 

Smart thermostats on a WiFi network are accessible through phone apps, thus allowing for the cabin's temperature to be adjusted from anywhere on your journey.
