Imagine having the ability to control your home’s comfort settings by vocalizing a command or by going to an app on your smartphone. Now, take it beyond that point and visualize having something that is able to actually learn your preferred settings and adjust automatically. As you will see, smart thermostats are extraordinary pieces of technology that are able to add a new level of convenience, energy conservation, and even safety to your household. Keep reading to understand how they work and what they might do for your family.

How are smart thermostats different from regular models?

Although smart thermostats give you an array of unique features, they are comparable in some ways to the models we are accustomed to. For instance, they are hardwired straight to your HVAC equipment. You may also manually manipulate the temperature by interacting with the hardware connected to your wall. But that’s pretty much where the similarities end.

The all-important connection to the internet is the overriding factor in differentiating smart thermostats from standard models. By having this bond to the internet, you’re able to get a new degree of accessibility and control. Essentially, you may modify your comfort settings from any location. Did you forget to lower the settings when going on a family excursion? No problem. Just go to the easy-to-use Vivint app on your smartphone and make the adjustments. There are many other actions you can take with the app, including:

  • Shift between HVAC modes
  • Set your system to a specific mode like home, vacation, or sleep
  • Switch your fan on or off
  • Get alerts whenever comfort levels are automatically or manually adjusted

Modify the temperature by simply using your voice

Your Wi-Fi connection allows for one more incredible advantage as you may pair your unit to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you want to keep comfortable on a frigid winter night and you don’t want to leave your toasty seat in the recliner, just give 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 higher level by using its built-in Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat has the ability to use a range of sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to tell if you’re at home or not. In addition, this smart piece of equipment will actually learn your preferences and adjust correspondingly. For example, if you usually like things to be cooler in the evenings, the thermostat will discern that and adjust it for you.

Integrated safety measure in case of fire

The automated functionality also plays a role in your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat has an emergency shutoff of your HVAC equipment when fire is found to limit the escalation of smoke and flames. You can also have it instantly activate the exhaust fan to assist in venting your house.

Decrease your utility expenses in Naperville

Your smart thermostat’s potential to adjust temperature settings automatically and your ability to change them from any location isn’t just a nice feature, it’s good for your bottom line. If you tweak the settings up to 10 degrees for whenever you aren’t home, you stand to save quite a bit - up to 10% on energy costs.
