    Yeah we know.
    However with remote controls you can see if they did what they are supposed to.
    When a tech is dispatched to these places , they know when I arrive, they have web cameras in the perimeter or ring type stuff. ...........
    Yes it is a new world and workplace

    Did what WHO is supposed to? You mean it's the previous renters responsibility to clean and wash or change the linens? Ewwww! Gross!

    Caretaker probably does cost more, some might feel they will be taken advantage or or have things stolen, etc. This usually those that are only moderately wealthy though. The filthy rich have full time caretakers at all their properties.

    What does that make those of us with no controller at all other then the OEM thermostats? Cavemen?
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    I just turn off all the breakers when I leave my camp, turn them on when I get there.
    If I rented it out, I would be there when customer arrived and left, 1-1/2hrs. door to door
