Pop quiz: what makes a thermostat smart? If your answer includes the following: a) connected to the Internet, b) controlled with a smartphone app, c) monitors and changes the temperature without being told—you’re correct.
Another correct answer would be: knowledge. A thermostat that knows more about your house and your needs can take smarter actions on your behalf. It’s why many standalone connected thermostats, equipped with only a one-room view, fall short.
And it’s why the Smart Thermostat excels.
Connected to every device and activity sensor in your smart home system, it knows more, understands more, and can do more to save energy and keep you comfortable. Here are four ways you can use it:
Stay Comfortable In Style
The new Smart Thermostat HD isn’t just pretty and packed full of energy-saving functionality, it also solves a common problem faced by homeowners and HVAC technicians.
Most older homes lack a C-wire that’s needed to power a smart thermostat display. That means new wire must be run through your walls which is messy, time-consuming, and expensive. Designed with this scenario in mind, the Smart Thermostat HD can use wireless communication to save you and your technician from a major headache.
Smart Thermostat HD features include:
The high resolution, full-color touchscreen display wakes up on approach, greets you with different messages based on the time of day, and provides a rich user experience.
Smart Energy Savings
Beyond its energy-saving schedules, the Smart Thermostat HD can automatically adjust your home’s temperature based on real-time activity, occupancy, and your geo-location.
You can adjust the temperature from anywhere using the Mobile App, even the sofa. And because the Smart Thermostat HD works with the Alarm.com platform, it can be included in a bedtime Scene that adjusts the temperature, lights, and locks with a single tap in the Mobile App.
Peace of Mind
Smart Thermostat HD alerts you to emerging heating and cooling system issues. This helps prolong the lifespan of your home’s most expensive system and avoid breakdowns during a heatwave or cold winter night.
