Imagine having the ability to manage your home’s heating and cooling systems by vocalizing a command or by using an app on your mobile device. Now, go beyond that point and envision having a device that can detect your preferences and automatically adapt. As you will see, smart thermostats are pretty amazing technological advancements that are able to add more convenience, energy conservation, and even safety to your home. Keep reading to understand how they work and what they can do for your property.

How do smart thermostats compare to standard models?

Although smart thermostats provide a wealth of beneficial features, they are similar in some ways to the ones we grew up using. Namely, they are wired straight to your HVAC system. You are also able to manually adjust the temperature by engaging with the device attached to your wall. But that’s pretty much where the similarities conclude.

Tallahassee smart thermostats connect to your home’s Wi-Fi

The all-important connection to your home’s Wi-Fi is the overriding factor in differentiating smart thermostats from past versions. By having this connection to the internet, you’re able to realize a new world of accessibility and control. Basically, you are able to modify your heating and cooling levels from anywhere. Did you neglect to turn down the settings when going on a family excursion? No problem. Simply access the intuitive Vivint app on your smartphone and take care of it. There are various other things you can do with the app, including:

  • Switch between cooling and heating
  • Adjust your system to a specific mode such as vacation, home, or sleep
  • Switch your fan on or off
  • Obtain alerts if settings are manually or automatically adjusted

Modify comfort levels by simply speaking a directive

Your Wi-Fi connection provides an additional great benefit as you can link your device to a Google or Amazon smart speaker. If you’re trying to keep comfortable on a chilly winter’s evening and you don’t want to leave your snug seat on the couch, just speak a command like “Alexa, turn up the thermostat three degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat actually adjusts on its own

The Vivint Smart Thermostat will take convenience to a higher level with its built-in Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat can use various sensors and other features like geolocation to discern if you’re at home or not. Not to mention, this intelligent device will even grasp your preferences and change settings accordingly. For example, if you typically prefer things to be cooler over night, the thermostat will observe that and change it for you.

Integrated safety protection to limit fire

The automated aspect of your device also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat features an emergency shutdown of your heating and cooling system when fire is detected to decrease the spread of smoke and flames. You might also set it to automatically turn on the exhaust fan to assist in venting your property.

Lower your energy costs in Tallahassee

Your smart thermostat’s potential to adapt HVAC settings on its own and your ability to change them from any location isn’t just convenient, it’s smart for your bank account. If you change the settings up to 10 degrees for whenever you’re not there, you stand to save a good deal - up to 10% on energy expenses.
