Imagine this scenario - you closed up the cottage for the winter but now you want to head back for a weekend in a winter wonderland. Wouldn't it be great if you could turn on the heat before you get there so it's nice and toasty? Turns out you can! A wifi-connected thermostat is a great idea for those who occasionally visit their cottage in the winter. Cottage Life said, "Working with the app and your phone's GPS, a geo-fence tells the thermostat to turn up the heat when you're, say, 150 km from the cottage, so it's warm when you arrive two hours later."
