The smart thermostat can do more than control your home's heating or cooling system. Because it is an app-enabled device you can control your thermostat from anywhere your phone has Wi-Fi or cell service. You can control your AC and heat from anywhere, whether you are on vacation, in the grocery store, or at home. Many models can be controlled using voice commands such as Alexa and Google Assistant.
Some smart thermostats use occupancy sensors to detect if you are at home or away and adjust the temperature accordingly. Some thermostats will automatically switch between home or away mode depending on the location of your phone. Remote temperature and proximity sensors can be used to extend the range of your thermostat's detection to other areas of your home.
Many connected thermostats have innovative designs to go with these new features. Smart thermostats can be designed in a variety of ways, including a responsive touchscreen and a rounded shape. Smart thermostats can send you smart alerts and sync with other smart home devices, providing details about your HVAC system's energy use over time. Let's get to it.
