My friend is going through a really hard time.
Her husband of ten years has been cheating on her for two months with a coworker.
My friend was in complete shock because she and her husband have not been having any issues, or any that she noticed for that matter. Now here is the crazy part, how she caught her husband cheating because of her smart thermostat. She and her now ex-husband had installed a smart thermostat five years ago. They both had an app on their phone to control the temperatures throughout the day. In the summer they always had the smart thermostat set to 77 during the day when they were both at work, and to 74 degrees at 5pm when they would usually get home from work. My friend noticed that their electric bill was going up significantly. She decided to check the app for the smart thermostat and noticed that for the last two months the temperature was set to 73 during the day on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1-3 pm when they were both at work. She thought this was really odd, so she asked her husband why he changed it. He immediately got defensive. She decided to do some more research and checked her camera history. She turned the notifications off of her phone a while ago because they were annoying her. Low and behold, she saw the footage of his coworker coming to his house on Mondays and Wednesdays at 1 pm. My friend was incredibly grateful for her smart thermostat for helping her catch her cheating husband red handed.
