My control machine doesn’t listen to me

My control machine is doing this frustrating thing called energy saving mode.

It adjusts the temperature separate from me giving it the okay.

In a perfect world I would be okay with it making little swings to our heating and cooling to save me currency long term. However, I am willing to spend a little more currency to be comfortable. How much extra currency could it be to up the control machine a few degrees in the winter? Right now I have the control machine set to 69 degrees. When I wake up in the morning the control machine is set to 73, however on its own our little temperature control machine decided that it would be better to have the beach house a little colder. When I up the control machine back again, it doesn’t last. A few minutes later it will drop right down. The same happens in the summer time with AC. I have fought to get quality cooling and lost that battle. The control machine is the victor no matter what. There must be a way to take it off energy saving mode. I want to do the currency wasting mode. I want the control machine to entirely listen to what I tell it to. I kind of wish I would have gotten a dial control machine rather than a smart product. The smart control machine only lets me run it off our iphone. Occasionally I don’t have our iphone and I am right in the hallway. The control machine won’t let me alter the temperature manually. It just bumps everything back to the way it was. Occasionally I want it to just listen to me you know?
