Picture having the ability to direct your home’s temperature by speaking a simple directive or by going to an app on your smartphone. Now, take it beyond that point and think about having something that can learn your preferred settings and automatically adjust. As you can see, smart thermostats are beneficial pieces of technology that are able to add convenience, energy savings, and even safety to your home. Keep reading to get a better idea how they work and what they might do for you.

How are smart thermostats different from standard models?

Despite the fact that smart thermostats offer a wealth of unique features, they are similar in a couple of ways to the versions we grew up using. For example, they are connected directly to your heating and cooling system. You may also manually adjust your home’s temperature by engaging with the unit attached to your wall. But that’s just about where the parallels end.

Alpharetta smart thermostats link to your home’s wireless network

The major difference between smart thermostats and older styles is that they bond to your property’s wireless network. This opens a whole range of exciting capabilities including remote access and control. Generally speaking, you may modify your comfort settings from anywhere. Did you neglect to lower the temperature when departing on a trip? No problem. Just access the intuitive Vivint app on your cell phone and quickly change it. There are many other tasks you can complete with the app, such as:

  • Shift between cooling and heating
  • Set your system to a preprogrammed mode like sleep, home, away, and vacation
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Receive updates if temperatures are manually or automatically adjusted

Alter HVAC settings by simply saying a command

Your wireless connection allows for one more great advantage as you are able to link your unit to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you’re trying to stay comfy on a cold mid-winter night and you don’t want to leave your snug place on the sofa, just speak an order like “Alexa, turn up the thermostat three degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat will take convenience to a new level by turning to its built-in Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat has the ability to utilize various sensors and other features like geolocation to discern if you’re in the house or not. In addition, this adaptive device will actually note your preferences and adjust correspondingly. To illustrate, if you usually prefer the house a bit cooler in the evenings, the thermostat will take note and adjust it for you.

Integrated safety protection to counteract a fire

The automated functionality also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat includes an emergency shutoff of your HVAC equipment when fire is found to control the spread of flames and smoke. You can also have it instantaneously turn on the exhaust fan to assist in venting your property.

Decrease your energy bills in Alpharetta

Your smart thermostat’s ability to adjust HVAC settings on its own and your ability to manipulate them from a distance isn’t just a nice feature, it’s good for your bank account. If you adjust your comfort levels 5 to 10 degrees for times you aren’t home, you are able to save a good deal - up to 10% on utility bills.
