Consider being able to direct your home’s temperature by saying a command or by utilizing an app on your smartphone. Now, go even further and visualize having a device that is able to discern your routine and automatically adjust. As you will see, smart thermostats are beneficial technological advancements capable of adding convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your life. Take a moment to get a better idea how they work and what they are able to do for your family.

How do smart thermostats compare to traditional models?

It goes without saying that smart thermostats are an exciting piece of modern equipment but they’re still similar to older models in various ways. For instance, they are hardwired directly to your HVAC equipment. You can also manually adjust the comfort settings by interacting with the device attached to your wall. But that’s about where the parallels conclude.

Santa Fe smart thermostats connect to your home’s Wi-Fi

You are able to sum up the difference between regular thermostats and the new advanced versions in two words - internet connection. By having this bond to the internet, you’re able to realize a new world of access and operation. Generally speaking, you may alter your heating and cooling levels from wherever you are. Did you neglect to turn down the settings when going on vacation? Don’t worry about it. Just go to the convenient Vivint app on your smartphone and quickly change it. There are a range of other tasks you can complete with the app, like:

  • Switch between cooling and heating
  • Adjust your system to a certain mode such as home, vacation, or sleep
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Receive notifications if temperatures are automatically or manually adjusted

Modify comfort levels by simply speaking a directive

Your wireless connection allows for an additional great advantage as you may sync your thermostat to a Google or Amazon smart speaker. If you want to stay comfy on a cold mid-winter night and you don’t want to leave your snug place on the sofa, just give a command like ”Hey Google, set the temperature to 73 degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat actually adjusts on its own

The Vivint Smart Thermostat can take convenience to a new level with its built-in Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat is able to employ in-home sensors and other features like geolocation to determine if you’re in the house or not. Not to mention, this smart component will actually learn your preferences and change settings correspondingly. For example, if you generally prefer the temperature lower at night, the thermostat will observe that and change it for you.

Integrated safety protection to counteract a fire

The automated capability also plays a role in your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat includes an emergency shutoff of your HVAC equipment when fire is found to control the spread of flames and smoke. You can also set it to instantaneously engage the exhaust fan to assist in venting your property.

Lower your energy expenses in Santa Fe

Your smart thermostat’s potential to alter temperatures on its own and your ability to change them from a distance isn’t just nice to have, it’s smart for your pocketbook. If you tweak temperatures between 5 to 10 degrees for times you are away, you can save quite a bit - up to 10% on energy costs.
