Imagine having the chance to control your home’s temperature by speaking a command or by using an app on your mobile device. Now, take it beyond that point and visualize having something that is able to actually discern your preferences and automatically adapt. As you will see, smart thermostats are extraordinary technological advancements capable of adding convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your home. Continue reading to get a better idea how they work and what they can do for you.

How are smart thermostats different from standard models?

In spite of their unique abilities, smart thermostats work in part like regular models. Namely, they are wired directly to your heating and cooling system. You are also able to manually manipulate your home’s temperature by engaging with the unit fastened to your wall. But that’s about where the parallels end.

Las Cruces smart thermostats bridge to your home’s Wi-Fi

The main difference between smart thermostats and standard types is that they link to your home’s Wi-Fi network. This introduces a whole range of possibilities including smartphone control and accessibility. Generally speaking, you are able to modify your comfort settings from any location. Did you not remember to lower the settings when departing on a trip? That’s OK. Just access the easy-to-use Vivint app on your mobile device and make the adjustments. There are many other tasks you can complete with the app, like:

  • Change between HVAC modes
  • Set your system to a specific mode such as home, vacation, or sleep
  • Turn your fan on or off
  • Receive updates when comfort levels are automatically or manually adjusted

Modify comfort levels by simply speaking a directive

Your wireless connection provides another incredible benefit as you are able to pair your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you’re trying to stay comfortable on a chilly mid-winter night and you don’t want to get up from your toasty spot on the couch, just give an order like “Alexa, turn up the thermostat three degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat can adjust automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat can take convenience to a higher level with its built-in Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat is able to utilize in-home sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to determine if you’re home or away. In addition, this intelligent device will even note your preferences and adjust correspondingly. For instance, if you generally like things to be cooler over night, the thermostat will take note and do it for you.

Built-in safety measure to counteract a fire

The automated capability also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat includes an emergency HVAC shutoff when fire is found to decrease the escalation of flames and smoke. You might also set it to automatically turn on the exhaust fan to assist in venting your property.

Reduce your utility bills in Las Cruces

Your smart thermostat’s potential to adapt temperatures by itself and your ability to change them from any location isn’t just nice to have, it’s smart for your bottom line.
