"Connected and interfaced to the house alarm, presence detectors, people schedule and secure remote control via smartphone - definitely yes. You are looking at a couple of hundred quid saving on average for a 3-5 bedroom house where there is nobody 8:00 to 15:00 and has reduced occupancy 15:00 - 18:00."

for an initial outlay of only about ten years worth of that saving plus maintenance / repair / replacement every few years as they become obsolete or unable to interface with the latest Bluetooth 20 specs and calculated at todays energy prices, yet energy prices have declined over the years

bit like paying for a house over 25 years and thinking you've made a profit when you've paid interest that makes it 5X the initial price really
