I have Hive Active Heating installed at my home in London. This allows me to control my central heating (absolutely essential for anyone living in the UK, whereas air conditioning is de rigeur here in the Philippines) from anywhere I have an Internet connection. Knowing that I would be away for two weeks, before I left to come to Manila I set it to the minimum required to keep the house frost free. I’ll be back home on Saturday morning next, but F will be there before me, on Thursday, so I have just connected to my account on the Web and reset the system to bring the heating up from Thursday so that it will be warm again. And I was able to see that the internal temperature in the house is 8.8 °C at the moment. Isn’t technology wonderful!
