Consider having the ability to direct your home’s temperature by saying a command or by going to an app on your smartphone. Now, take it even further and think about having a device that will discern your routine and adjust automatically. As you will see, smart thermostats are beneficial advancements in technology capable of adding convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your life. Keep reading to see how they work and what they are able to do for you.

How do smart thermostats compare to regular models?

Despite all their special features, smart thermostats function in part like traditional styles. Namely, they are hardwired straight to your HVAC system. You can also manually raise and lower your home’s temperature by touching the device connected to your wall. But that’s just about where the similarities finish.

The major difference between smart thermostats and traditional types is that they connect to your home’s Wi-Fi network. This opens a whole range of possibilities like remote control and accessibility. Essentially, you can modify your HVAC system from any location. Did you forget to lower the heat when going on a trip? Don’t worry about it. Just access the easy-to-use Vivint app on your mobile device and quickly change it. There are many other tasks you can complete with the app, like:

  • Switch between HVAC modes
  • Adjust your system to a preprogrammed mode such as vacation, home, or sleep
  • Switch your fan on or off
  • Obtain updates whenever temperatures are manually or automatically altered

Modify the temperature by simply using your voice

Your wireless connection allows for an additional amazing advantage as you can pair your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you want to stay comfortable on a frigid winter night and you don’t want to leave your snug seat on the sofa, just say an order like ”Alexa, turn the heat up two degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat actually takes 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 functionality like geolocation to discern if you’re in the house or not. Not to mention, this adaptive device will actually note your preferences and change settings to match. For instance, if you typically like things to be cooler in the evenings, the thermostat will discern that and do it for you.

Built-in safety protection in case of fire

The automated functionality also impacts your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat includes an emergency shutdown of your heating and cooling system when fire is found to decrease the spread of flames and smoke. You could also program it instantaneously turn on the exhaust fan to aid in venting your house.
