Imagine having the chance to control your home’s temperature by saying a simple directive or by going to an app on your smartphone. Now, take it even further and envision having a device that can learn your preferred settings and automatically adapt. As you may soon realize, smart thermostats are beneficial advancements in technology that can bring more convenience, energy conservation, and even safety to your home. Keep reading to see how they work and what they can do for your family.

How do smart thermostats differ from standard models?

Although smart thermostats give you a wealth of unique features, they are comparable in a couple of ways to the ones we are accustomed to. Namely, they are connected straight to your heating and cooling system. You can also manually manipulate the temperature by engaging with the unit fastened to your wall. But that’s about where the similarities end.

Stamford smart thermostats link to your home’s wireless network

The critical connection to your wireless network is the easiest way to differentiate smart thermostats from their older counterparts. This allows a multitude of possibilities like off-site control and accessibility. Generally speaking, you are able to modify your comfort settings from any location. Did you neglect to lower the settings when leaving on vacation? Don’t worry about it. Just access the intuitive Vivint app on your mobile device and take care of it. There are various other actions you can take with the app, like:

  • Change between HVAC modes
  • Change your system to a certain mode such as vacation, home, or sleep
  • Turn your fan on or off
  • Get alerts if comfort levels are manually or automatically adjusted

Alter HVAC settings by simply speaking a directive

Your internet connection provides an additional incredible benefit as you can pair your thermostat to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you would like to keep warm on a chilly mid-winter night and you don’t want to leave your toasty seat on the sofa, just give a directive like ”Alexa, turn the heat up two degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat can take convenience to a new level with its available Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat has the ability to utilize a range of sensors and other functionality like geolocation to discern if you’re home or away. In addition, this adaptive device will actually note your preferences and adjust to match. For example, if you generally prefer the house a bit cooler at night, the thermostat will discern that and do it for you.

Integrated safety precaution to counteract a fire

The automated functionality also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat has an emergency HVAC shutoff when fire is found to limit the escalation of flames and smoke. You could also set it to automatically engage the exhaust fan to aid in venting your home.

Decrease your utility bills in Stamford

Your smart thermostat’s potential to alter HVAC settings automatically and your ability to change them from a distance isn’t just a nice feature, it’s smart for your bank account. If you adjust your comfort levels between 5 to 10 degrees for when you’re not there, you are able to save a good deal - up to 10% on utility bills.
