Imagine having the ability to manage your home’s heating and cooling systems by vocalizing a short phrase or by using an app on your mobile device. Now, take it even further and visualize having a device that is able to actually discern your preferred settings and automatically adjust. As you will see, smart thermostats are pretty amazing advancements in technology that can bring convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your life. Take a moment to see how they work and what they are able to do for your property.

How do smart thermostats differ from standard models?

It’s true that smart thermostats are an amazing piece of smart home equipment but they’re comparable to previous models in a couple of ways. For example, they are hardwired directly to your HVAC system. You are also able to manually raise and lower your home’s temperature by touching the hardware fastened to your wall. But that’s just about where the similarities end.

Montgomery smart thermostats connect to your home’s wireless network

You are able to summarize the difference between traditional thermostats and smart models in two words - Wi-Fi connection. Having your heating and cooling system connected to the internet gives you access and control like you’ve previously never experienced. Basically, you are able to alter your HVAC system from wherever you are. Did you neglect to turn down the temperature when leaving on a trip? That’s OK. Just open the convenient Vivint app on your mobile device and take care of it. There are many other tasks you can complete with the app, including:

  • Shift between cooling and heating
  • Adjust your system to a preprogrammed mode like home, vacation, or sleep
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Get notifications if temperatures are manually or automatically altered

Alter comfort levels by simply speaking a directive

Your Wi-Fi connection provides an additional amazing benefit as you can pair your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you would like to stay comfy on a cold winter night and you don’t want to get up from your toasty seat in the recliner, just speak a directive like ”Alexa, turn the heat up two degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat actually takes convenience to a new level by turning to its available Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat can utilize various sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to discern if you’re at home or not. Additionally, this smart component will even note your preferences and change settings accordingly. For instance, if you generally prefer the temperature lower in the evenings, the thermostat will discern that and adjust it for you.

Built-in safety precaution to limit fire

The automated capability also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat has an emergency shutoff of your HVAC equipment when fire is detected to decrease the escalation of smoke and flames. You can also program it instantaneously engage the exhaust fan to assist in venting your property.

Lower your energy expenses in Montgomery

Your smart thermostat’s power to adapt temperatures automatically and your ability to modify them from any location isn’t just nice to have, it’s good for your pocketbook. If you tweak your comfort levels 5 to 10 degrees for times you’re not there, you stand to save a noticeable amount - up to 10% on utility bills.
