My thermostat doesn’t listen to me

The thermostat won’t let me alter the temperature manually

My thermostat is doing this annoying thing called energy saving mode. It adjusts the temperature without me giving it the okay. In a perfect world I would be okay with it making little changes to my heating and cooling to save me money long term. However, I am willing to spend a little more money to be comfortable. How much extra money could it be to up the thermostat a few degrees in the winter? Right now I have the thermostat set to 74 degrees. When I wake up in the morning the thermostat is set to 68. On its own my little climate control device decided that it would be better to have the house a little colder. When I up the thermostat back again, it doesn’t last. A few hours later it will drop right down. The same happens in the summer with AC. I have fought to get quality cooling and lost that battle. The thermostat is the victor no matter what. There must be a way to take it off energy saving mode. I want to do the money wasting mode. I want the thermostat to actually listen to what I tell it to. I kind of wish I would have gotten a dial thermostat rather than a smart product. The smart thermostat only lets me run it off my phone. Sometimes I don’t have my phone and I am right in the hallway. The thermostat won’t let me alter the temperature manually. It just bumps everything back to the way it was. Sometimes I want it to just listen to me you know?
