What is Intelligent Octopus?

How does it work? 

It’s rather easy and you don’t have to do a thing! With Intelligent Octopus we’ll be connected to your smart thermostat via Wi-Fi. Occasionally when there’s a need to conserve energy, we’ll just adjust your thermostat a few degrees for a short period of time- most customers don’t even notice! Your thermostat will automatically return to its original setting, keeping your home comfortable and energy-efficient! But don’t worry, you’re still fully in control.
