I see what you are saying, but no, it doesn't care. If it cared then it would not have to be programmed or set, it would just try to keep the temperature comfortable for itself. If it's the dead of winter and you don't have it set to heat, you will freeze to death and nobody will pay the electric bill and the thermostat won't ever do anything again. It has no capacity to understand what it is or what it's doing. Craig -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
