Picture being able to direct your home’s temperature by saying a simple directive or by utilizing an app on your smartphone. Now, take it beyond that point and visualize having a device that can discern your preferred settings and automatically adjust. As you will see, smart thermostats are pretty amazing advancements in technology that are able to add more convenience, energy savings, and even safety to your life. Keep reading to see how they work and what they can do for your family.

How are smart thermostats different from standard models?

In spite of their unique features, smart thermostats work similarly to standard models. For example, they are hardwired straight to your HVAC equipment. You can also manually raise and lower the temperature by interacting with the hardware fastened to your wall. But that’s pretty much where the similarities finish.

Dayton smart thermostats bridge to your home’s wireless network

The main difference between smart thermostats and traditional types is that they link to your property’s wireless network. Having your AC and heating equipment connected to the internet gives you access to your system like you’ve previously never had. Generally speaking, you may alter your comfort settings from anywhere. Did you forget to lower the heat when going on a trip? No problem. Just open the convenient Vivint app on your smartphone and take care of it. There are various other actions you can take with the app, including:

  • Change between cooling and heating
  • Set your system to a preprogrammed mode such as vacation, home, or sleep
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Obtain notifications when comfort levels are automatically or manually adjusted

Change comfort levels by simply saying a command

Your wireless connection provides an additional great bonus as you may pair your thermostat to a Google or Amazon smart speaker. If you would like to stay comfy on a frigid winter’s evening and you don’t feel like leaving your cozy seat on the couch, just give a directive like ”Alexa, turn the heat up two degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat actually takes convenience to a higher level by using its available Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat can employ a range of sensors and other features like geolocation to determine if you’re home or away. Additionally, this smart component 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 observe that and change it for you.

Built-in safety protection to counteract a fire

The automated aspect of your device also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat features an emergency HVAC shutoff when fire is detected to limit the spread of smoke and flames. You can also have it instantaneously engage the exhaust fan to help vent your home.

Reduce your utility costs in Dayton

Your smart thermostat’s ability to adapt HVAC settings on its own and your ability to change them from any location isn’t just nice to have, it’s smart for your pocketbook. If you tweak temperatures up to 10 degrees for whenever you are away, you can save a noticeable amount - up to 10% on energy bills.
