Consider being able to direct your home’s temperature by vocalizing a short phrase or by using an app on your mobile device. Now, take it a step further and visualize having something that can actually discern your routine and automatically adjust. As you will see, smart thermostats are pretty amazing technological advancements that can bring a new level of convenience, energy savings, and even safety to your home. Continue reading to get a better idea how they work and what they might do for your property.

How do smart thermostats differ from standard models?

Notwithstanding their impressive abilities, smart thermostats work in part like regular models. For example, they are wired straight to your HVAC equipment. You are also able to manually raise and lower the comfort settings by touching the unit connected to your wall. But that’s just about where the commonalities conclude.

Lima smart thermostats connect to your home’s Wi-Fi

The crucial connection to the internet is the overriding factor in differentiating smart thermostats from past versions. By having this connection to the internet, you’re able to get a new level of accessibility and control. Generally speaking, you can alter your heating and cooling levels from anywhere. Did you not remember to lower the heat when departing on vacation? No problem. All you need to do is access the convenient Vivint app on your mobile device and take care of it. There are various other actions you can take with the app, like:

  • Change between HVAC modes
  • Adjust your system to a preprogrammed mode such as home, vacation, or sleep
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Get updates if settings are automatically or manually adjusted

Modify the temperature by simply saying a command

Your wireless connection gives you an additional great advantage as you can link your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you want to keep comfortable on a chilly mid-winter night and you don’t want to get up from your snug seat on the couch, just give an order like “Alexa, turn up the thermostat three degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat actually takes convenience to another level with its built-in Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat has the ability to employ a range of sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to tell if you’re home or away. Not to mention, this adaptive device will actually learn your preferences and adjust correspondingly. To illustrate, if you generally like the temperature lower in the evenings, the thermostat will discern that and adjust it for you.

Built-in safety precaution to limit fire

The automated capability also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat includes an emergency shutoff of your HVAC equipment when fire is identified to control the spread of flames and smoke. You might also set it to instantly turn on the exhaust fan to aid in venting your house.

Lower your utility expenses in Lima

Your smart thermostat’s potential to alter temperatures by itself and your ability to change them from a distance isn’t just nice to have, it’s good for your bottom line. If you adjust the settings up to 10 degrees for when you’re not there, you can save a good deal - up to 10% on energy expenses.
