Imagine having the ability to manage your home’s comfort settings by saying a command or by going to an app on your mobile device. Now, go even further and think about having a device that can discern your preferences and automatically adapt. As you may soon realize, smart thermostats are extraordinary technological advancements that are able to add more convenience, energy savings, and even safety to your life. Continue reading to get a better idea how they work and what they are able to do for you.

How are smart thermostats different from traditional models?

It goes without saying that smart thermostats are an amazing piece of home automation equipment but they’re comparable to past models in a couple of ways. For example, they are wired straight to your HVAC equipment. You are also able to manually manipulate the comfort settings by interacting with the hardware connected to your wall. But that’s pretty much where the commonalities conclude.

Phoenix smart thermostats bridge to your home’s wireless network

You can summarize the difference between regular thermostats and the new advanced versions in two words - internet connection. Having your AC and heating equipment joined to the internet gives you accessibility and command like you’ve previously never had. Generally speaking, you may modify your heating and cooling levels from any location. Did you neglect to decrease the temperature when departing on a trip? Don’t worry about it. All you need to do is access the intuitive Vivint app on your cell phone and take care of it. There are various other actions you can take with the app, like:

  • Switch between cooling and heating
  • Change your system to a specific mode like home, vacation, or sleep
  • Turn your fan on or off
  • Obtain alerts if temperatures are automatically or manually altered

Change the temperature by simply speaking a directive

Your wireless connection provides another great advantage as you may link your thermostat to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you would like to stay comfortable on a cold winter’s evening and you don’t want to leave your cozy place in the recliner, just speak a command like ”Hey Google, set the temperature to 73 degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat can adjust automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat actually takes convenience to a higher level with its available Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat can employ in-home sensors and other functionality like geolocation to tell if you’re home or away. Additionally, this intelligent piece of equipment will actually learn your preferences and alter settings accordingly. For example, if you usually prefer the temperature lower in the evenings, the thermostat will discern that and change it for you.

Integrated safety protection in case of 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 identified to limit the spread of smoke and flames. You can also set it to instantaneously turn on the exhaust fan to aid in venting your house.

Reduce your utility bills in Phoenix

Your smart thermostat’s ability to adapt HVAC settings on its own and your ability to manipulate them from any location isn’t just nice to have, it’s good for your bottom line. If you tweak temperatures between 5 to 10 degrees for when you aren’t home, you stand to save a noticeable amount - up to 10% on utility bills.
