  5. I liked the app where I could change my thermostat from my phone from anywhere. Is there something I can download that I could do that now?

    1. Hi Ashley. Good question, thanks for checking in. Many smart home devices can be controlled by apps from their manufacturer. There are also universal smart home hubs you can use. Please check the website of your device’s manufacturer’s website for more info and compatible products.

  6. Why not use the AEP It’s Your Power app that worked just great. Lets one monitor the energy usage and control it plus the peak power demand option. Why is it not possible for AEP to re-instate this great app? I still have my energy bridge and thermostat.
