Instant Home Comfort — There’s an App for That!
If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably filled your smartphone with apps to make everyday tasks just that much easier — from mapping that morning run, to ordering lunch, to tracking your sleep at night. But are you using your smartphone to its full potential? If you’re not yet using your phone to program and customize your home comfort, now is the time to bring your home into the 21st century with a smart thermostat.
What Can a Smart Thermostat Do?
A smart thermostat is capable of more than you might think. Smart thermostats can:
Sync with your smart devices
Whether you’re leaving the office, out at the grocery store, or on your way home after a trip to Lake Tahoe, a smart thermostat allows you to control temperatures in your home remotely using your phone. Newer models like the Nest thermostat will even sync with other smart home devices like the Google Home or the Amazon Echo for easy comfort control.
Learn from your habits
If you’ve ever had a programmable thermostat, you know how difficult it can be to use. Some smart thermostats like Nest make programming simple by “learning” from your habits. Simply use your thermostat to turn the temperature in your home up and down to your preference for a week, and your thermostat will remember what you like.
Detect when you are home
Today’s smartest thermostats can detect movement, meaning they can tell when you are home and when you are not. So if you are normally at work during the week but take a sick day, your thermostat will know to keep your home at a comfortable temperature while you are home sick.
Show you energy usage in real time
A smart thermostat can connect to your phone to show you your home’s energy usage in real time. See how much money your heating or AC system is costing you per day and pinpoint ways to conserve energy.
Lower your energy bills
Smart thermostats are designed to help you conserve energy, lowering your energy bills. Your thermostat can even adjust itself to a more efficient setting without you having to fine-tune it.
