For instance, if you regularly after waking up come to the dining hall at the same time every day and set the temp to say 80°F(26°C), it stores and learns that info. Then, using motion sensor technology, if it doesn’t sense your presence every morning, it will figure out you’re away and will adjust the temp to save on energy.
