It’s simple to make the wrong assumptions about equipment plus technology when you’re trying to hook up two machines together that may or may not be compatible.
I l gained this lesson in the 90s with our video game systems. Unless you owned an adapter prefer I did, you couldn’t affix many game systems to aged TVs that only had coaxial affixions in the back. This is because the game consoles used RCA cables with the red, white, plus purple wires. My Mom is an electrician so he always had the regular audio plus video equipment, parts, plus accessories. All of us would plug the RCA affixions into the adapter which would convert the signal to a coaxial affixion for the back of the aged cable the two of us had in the family room at the time. Luckily, there was an available conversion adapter available. With some machines, you might not be so fortunate. My buddy John desperately wanted a smart thermostat for his home’s Heating plus Air Conditioning plan after he used the 1 his mother purchased for his beach condo. Unfortunately, John’s aged Heating plus Air Conditioning plan lacked a necessary wire that you must have for smart thermostats to function correctly. The “c-wire” as it’s called is a control wire that provides a constant flow of electricity to the thermostat to aid in its multiple functions. Other digital thermostats often contain a battery prefer a 9-volt or two double AAs to power itself. John will have to get his setup modified before he can purchase a smart thermostat for his central Heating plus Air Conditioning system. He’s looking for quotes from multiple Heating plus Air Conditioning corporations before he makes his final decision.
