Smart Thermostats: Perfect Temperatures

Warm or cool your home from anywhere.

Are you looking for a way to save on energy costs within your home? Is keeping track of your current thermostat too much? Would you rather have a gadget that can keep your home at the right temperature? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a smart thermostat could be a right fit for you. Essentially you can warm or cool your home from anywhere.

Energy Savings

With a smart thermostat, you can end up saving an average of 23% on your heating or cooling costs. Sounds appealing, right? Not only will a smart home thermostat monitor and control your home’s temperature from your smartphone, tablet, or PC, but it can help reduce your energy bill. These devices can monitor humidity and temperature inside your home, and it can tailor heating and cooling cycles accordingly. Most smart thermostats can even sense when you are not home. How “cool” is that?

Control the temperature from your smartphone.

One of the major benefits of a smart home thermostat is that it allows you to change the temperature in your home from your smartphone, tablet, or PC. If you are hot while sitting on the couch watching television after a long shift at work, this allows you to change the temperature without getting up from your comfortable spot. If you wake up in the middle of the night and are freezing or sweating, you can just reach over to your phone instead of getting up to change the thermostat.

Connect the thermostat with Amazon’s Alexa.

Many smart thermostats allow you the option to connect with Amazon’s Alexa. Some are also compatible with Samsung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and IFTTT. When you are ready to leave, simply say “Alexa, I’m away.” That will allow the thermostat to lower the temperature for energy savings.

Nest Learning Thermostat

There are many brands of smart thermostats to choose from. The Nest Learning thermostat is recommended by many companies. It contains a great design, and it is easy to use. Its learning capabilities make the Nest the smartest smart thermostat around. Its apps and software do a really good job of keeping your home a comfortable temperature with little to no input from you. The Nest’s tactile metal ring feels nice in your hand and works consistently. This cannot always be said about touch screens. It also has Auto-Away, which allows it to raise your temperature to predetermined levels when it senses the house is empty courtesy of its built-in sensor and any smartphone you choose to enable. The Nest continues to manage your home’s temperature intelligently regardless of whether it knows where you are. If you are looking for a smart thermostat, a Nest Learning Thermostat is a good choice.
