Smart home ideas have been floating around in our IT sphere for a long time, but so far most of the shown concepts from manufacturers are far from masterpieces and are not particularly needed in everyday use. And here is one useful use case I would like to talk about.
Once on Twitter, a friend boasted that he had bought an air conditioner with the ability to control from a smartphone. Initially, I thought it was a waste of money, but now I remembered that story and realized that this use case has potential. For example, it is very convenient to fine-tune the temperature during sleep, set the on / off parameters, the movement of the blinds, etc. Of course, some of these functions are also present in ordinary 'kondeys' (even my cheap one can turn on the night mode, when the temperature rises by one degree every hour, and after two hours it just quietly works at 25 degrees), but it seems more convenient to set them from the phone.
And so I decided to ask you, dear readers: would you like to see similar functions in your air conditioner? if so, how much would you be willing to pay for them?
