So like all stories depicting the Lake of the Ozarks these days there seems to be more to this story than was first reported. The next day a condo owner had heard about the incident and noticed some fluctuations on his thermostat. He called the the condo handyman to see if he could check on the place. After further investigation there were 2 more people that were with this group squatting in the condo. The police were called and made the arrests.
The condo owner credits the digital read out readouts that his thermostat gives him . They assumed (hoped) it was building management checking the thermostat or water. He walked in on two individuals in the unit, called the police and they were, too, arrested. Simple tech (smart control on the thermostat) caught these two as well.
Digital thermostats are the in-thing when discussing must-have home appliances and devices. Many homes are switching from analog thermostats to digital thermostats because of their multiple benefits.
A digital thermostat, first and foremost, offers convenience and comfort around the home. Digital thermostats can automatically control a home or office’s temperature for an entire day simply by mere seconds of programming. No longer will a home run the same temperature all day until someone manually adjusts the thermostat. Your home can be 75 degrees early in the morning, 72 by mid-afternoon and again back to 75 later that evening. With warmer temperatures creeping in, this can be a great advantage.
A suspect is in jail and the stolen items recovered after a local lake business owner uses technology to find his missing Polaris side by side. “I got home from work and noticed my Polaris side by side was missing from the driveway. I pulled up my phone and did a find my friends on it. Boom” After finding out where the missing Polaris was, “I drove to the location and found a box van / uhaul there and my phone was saying it was at the same location as my Polaris. I called the police and they came and retrieved my Polaris from the uhaul truck and found the guy who stole it.
The suspect was arrested and taken away. It was all made possible by using apple air tags. They are about the size of a quarter and can be hidden in anything you own.” The police said the uhaul and red truck were stolen out of Kansas City and I was “lucky” to have busted up this little ring of bad guys.
AirTag sends out a secure Bluetooth signal that can be detected by nearby devices in the Find My network. These devices send the location of your AirTag to iCloud — then you can go to the Find My app and see it on a map. The whole process is anonymous and encrypted to protect your privacy. And itʼs efficient, so thereʼs no need to worry about battery life or data usage. AirTag are a supereasy way to keep track of your stuff. Attach one to your keys, slip another in your backpack. And just like that, they’re on your radar in the Find My app, where you can also track down your Apple devices.
