Consider being able to direct your home’s temperature by vocalizing a short phrase or by going to an app on your mobile device. Now, take it a step further and visualize having a device that is able to actually discern your routine and automatically adapt. As you can see, smart thermostats are pretty amazing pieces of technology that are able to add a new level of convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your life. Take a moment to see how they work and what they can do for your family.

How are smart thermostats different from standard models?

Although smart thermostats give you a bevy of exciting features, they are similar in a couple of ways to the ones we are accustomed to. For example, they are wired straight to your HVAC system. You are also able to manually raise and lower the temperature by interacting with the device fastened to your wall. But that’s about where the parallels finish.

Colorado Springs smart thermostats link to your home’s Wi-Fi

The major difference between smart thermostats and standard types is that they link to your property’s wireless network. Having your heating and cooling system joined to the internet gives you access to your system like you’ve never had before. Basically, you can modify your heating and cooling levels from any location. Did you neglect to lower the temperature when departing on vacation? Don’t worry about it. Just open the intuitive Vivint app on your cell phone and quickly change it. There are a range of other tasks you can complete with the app, like:

  • Switch between HVAC modes
  • Adjust your system to a preprogrammed mode such as vacation, home, or sleep
  • Turn your fan on or off
  • Obtain alerts when settings are manually or automatically altered

Modify the temperature by simply speaking a directive

Your Wi-Fi connection gives you an additional great benefit as you may sync your unit to a Google or Amazon smart speaker. If you want to stay comfy on a cold winter night and you don’t want to leave your cozy seat on the couch, just give an order like ”Alexa, turn the heat up two degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat actually adjusts on its own

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 is able to utilize in-home sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to determine if you’re home or away. In addition, this smart piece of equipment will even grasp your preferences and adjust accordingly. To illustrate, if you generally like the temperature lower at night, the thermostat will take note and change it for you.

Built-in safety protection 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 spread of smoke and flames. You could also have it automatically engage the exhaust fan to aid in venting your property.

Lower your energy bills in Colorado Springs

Your smart thermostat’s potential to adjust temperature settings by itself and your ability to manipulate them remotely isn’t just convenient, it’s a plus for your bank account. If you tweak the settings up to 10 degrees for times you aren’t home, you stand to save quite a bit - up to 10% on energy expenses.
