Imagine having the chance to manage your home’s heating and cooling systems by saying a simple directive or by utilizing an app on your smartphone. Now, go beyond that point and think about having something that will actually detect your routine and automatically adjust. As you will see, smart thermostats are beneficial technological advancements that can bring more convenience, energy conservation, and even safety to your household. Take a moment to understand how they work and what they can do for your property.

How do smart thermostats differ from standard models?

It’s well established that smart thermostats are an exciting piece of home automation equipment but they’re still similar to past models in some ways. For instance, they are wired right to your HVAC equipment. You can also manually manipulate the comfort settings by interacting with the unit fastened to your wall. But that’s pretty much where the commonalities finish.

Manhattan smart thermostats bridge to your home’s Wi-Fi

The major difference between smart thermostats and older models is that they connect to your home’s Wi-Fi network. By having this link to the internet, you’re able to realize a new level of access and operation. Essentially, you may adjust your comfort settings from wherever you are. Did you forget to lower the settings when departing on a trip? Don’t worry about it. Simply access the easy-to-use Vivint app on your smartphone and quickly change it. There are various other things you can do with the app, including:

  • Shift between heating and cooling
  • Adjust your system to a preprogrammed mode such as sleep, home, away, and vacation
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Receive notifications when settings are manually or automatically altered

Modify comfort levels by simply saying a command

Your internet connection provides an additional great bonus as you may link your unit to a Google or Amazon smart speaker. If you’re trying to keep comfortable on a frigid winter night and you don’t want to leave your cozy spot on the couch, just give a command like ”Alexa, turn the heat up two degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat can adjust automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat can take convenience to a higher level by using its available Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat is able to use various sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to discern if you’re at home or not. Not to mention, this intelligent device will actually learn your preferences and change settings to match. For instance, if you usually like the house a bit cooler at night, the thermostat will take note and change it for you.

Integrated safety precaution to counteract a fire

The automated capability also impacts your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat has an emergency HVAC shutoff when fire is identified to limit the escalation of flames and smoke. You could also have it instantly engage the exhaust fan to help vent your property.

Decrease your energy expenses in Manhattan

Your smart thermostat’s ability to adjust HVAC settings automatically and your ability to change them remotely isn’t just nice to have, it’s a plus for your pocketbook. If you change temperatures between 5 to 10 degrees for whenever you’re not there, you can save a good deal - up to 10% on energy expenses.
