Wifi thermostat reveals husband turning up furnace during middle of night

When I upgraded the thermostat in my home to a wifi connected control, I knew it would provide superior comfort and energy efficiency. I was anxious to take advantage of the ability to make changes to temperature through my smartphone. My husband and I spent a bit more to take advantage of learning capability and voice commands. For the first week following installation, the thermostat kept track of every change we made to settings. It then created a customized program to suit our daily schedule. We now wake up and return home from work to the ideal temperature. In-between, the wifi thermostat automatically adjusts to conserve energy. It has helped to trim monthly costs, and reminds me about necessary maintenance for the heating and cooling system.  I hadn’t realized that the thermostat would reveal the many changes my husband makes to temperature settings. The thermostat keeps track of every time we raise or lower the setting, and how much energy is used. It even offers helpful tips to reduce energy draw. When I looked over the past month, I realized that my husband was getting up several times during the middle of the night and raising the thermostat setting. Instead of grabbing some warmer pajamas or an extra blanket, he was heating the entire house to the perfect temperature while the whole family is asleep. Not only was this costing us a small fortune, but also putting needless strain on the furnace. When I brought this to his attention, my husband initially tried to deny it. The thermostat, however, provided proof.
