Picture having the ability to direct your home’s heating and cooling systems by speaking a short phrase or by using an app on your smartphone. Now, take it beyond that point and envision having a device that will actually discern your preferences and automatically adjust. As you will see, smart thermostats are beneficial technological advancements that are able to add more convenience, energy savings, and even safety to your household. Keep reading to get a better idea how they work and what they can do for you.

How do smart thermostats differ from standard models?

Despite the fact that smart thermostats give you a bevy of exciting features, they are comparable in a couple of ways to the models we have always used. Namely, they are wired straight to your HVAC equipment. You may also manually adjust the comfort settings by interacting with the device attached to your wall. But that’s just about where the similarities end.

You are able to sum up the difference between standard thermostats and the new advanced versions in two words - internet connection. By having this connection to the internet, you’re able to get a new world of accessibility and control. Essentially, you may adjust your comfort settings from anywhere. Did you not remember to turn down the settings when departing on a family excursion? Don’t worry about it. Just open the intuitive Vivint app on your smartphone and quickly change it. There are a range of other things you can do with the app, such as:

  • Change between HVAC modes
  • Set your system to a preprogrammed mode such as vacation, home, or sleep
  • Switch your fan on or off
  • Receive updates when temperatures are automatically or manually altered

Modify comfort levels by simply speaking a directive

Your internet connection gives you one more incredible benefit as you can pair your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you want to stay comfy on a chilly winter night and you don’t feel like leaving your snug spot in the recliner, just give a command like “Alexa, turn up the thermostat three degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat actually adjusts on its own

The Vivint Smart Thermostat can take convenience to another level by turning to its available Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat can utilize a range of sensors and other functionality like geolocation to determine if you’re home or away. Additionally, this intelligent device will even grasp your preferences and alter settings correspondingly. To illustrate, if you typically like things to be cooler in the evenings, the thermostat will discern that and do it for you.

Built-in safety precaution in case of fire

The automated aspect of your device also plays a role in your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat features an emergency shutdown of your heating and cooling system when fire is identified to decrease the spread of flames and smoke. You could also have it automatically engage the exhaust fan to help vent your house.

Reduce your energy costs in New Haven

Your smart thermostat’s ability to alter temperatures by itself and your ability to change them from any location isn’t just convenient, it’s good for your bottom line. If you adjust temperatures 5 to 10 degrees for times you’re not there, you stand to save quite a bit - up to 10% on energy bills.
