I remember there being the Nest thermostats, made by, er, bought out by
Google (or I guess Alphabet now). So they must make the app as well. It
(at least the unit) adapts by habits (every time you adjust the thermostat,
I just looked at the app page, under updates. I guess the cold house
problem would have been one since the 5th of the month, and still ongoing.
I didn't bother with Nest. I didn't want something that would try to
outwit me. I just wanted something that would keep a schedule, with the
option to manually deviate until the next schedule. So I got two of those
(one for each floor) generic (Noma) 8-mode programmable thermostats. Work
well for me.
