Picture having the ability to manage your home’s heating and cooling systems by vocalizing a simple directive or by using an app on your mobile device. Now, take it beyond that point and think about having something that is able to actually learn your routine and automatically adjust. As you will see, smart thermostats are beneficial pieces of technology that are able to add more convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your household. Keep reading to see how they work and what they can do for your property.

How do smart thermostats differ from traditional models?

Even though smart thermostats offer a bevy of exciting features, they are similar in a few ways to the models we grew up using. For instance, they are hardwired straight to your heating and cooling system. You can also manually manipulate the comfort settings by touching the unit attached to your wall. But that’s pretty much where the similarities end.

The all-important connection to the internet is the main way to differentiate smart thermostats from standard models. Having your heating and cooling system connected to the internet gives you access to your system like you’ve previously never had. Basically, you can adjust your comfort settings from anywhere. Did you not remember to decrease the temperature when leaving on a family excursion? Don’t worry about it. All you need to do is open the easy-to-use Vivint app on your mobile device and quickly change it. There are many other things you can do with the app, including:

  • Change between HVAC modes
  • Adjust your system to a certain mode like sleep, home, away, and vacation
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Get notifications when temperatures are manually or automatically altered

Modify HVAC settings by simply saying a command

Your Wi-Fi connection gives you one more amazing benefit as you may sync your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you’re trying to stay comfortable on a frigid winter night and you don’t feel like leaving your cozy seat on the couch, just say a command like ”Hey Google, set the temperature to 73 degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat actually takes convenience to another level with its built-in Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat is able to employ various sensors and other functionality like geolocation to tell if you’re home or away. In addition, this intelligent piece of equipment will actually learn your preferences and adjust to match. To illustrate, if you usually prefer the house a bit cooler at night, the thermostat will discern that and adjust it for you.

Integrated safety precaution in case of fire

The automated functionality also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat includes an emergency shutoff of your HVAC equipment when fire is detected to control the spread of flames and smoke. You might also set it to automatically engage the exhaust fan to assist in venting your house.

Decrease your energy expenses in Long Beach

Your smart thermostat’s power to adjust HVAC settings by itself and your ability to modify them from a distance isn’t just convenient, it’s smart for your pocketbook. If you change your comfort levels up to 10 degrees for times you aren’t home, you are able to save a noticeable amount - up to 10% on utility bills.
