Imagine having the ability to manage your home’s temperature by saying a short phrase or by using an app on your cell phone. Now, go even further and envision having a device that is able to discern your preferred settings and adjust automatically. As you may soon realize, smart thermostats are pretty amazing pieces of technology capable of adding a new level of convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your household. Take a moment to get a better idea how they work and what they can do for your property.

How do smart thermostats compare to traditional models?

It’s well established that smart thermostats are an exciting piece of modern equipment but they’re still similar to past models in a couple of ways. Namely, they are hardwired directly to your HVAC equipment. You are also able to manually raise and lower the comfort settings by interacting with the device attached to your wall. But that’s about where the commonalities finish.

Bozeman smart thermostats connect to your home’s wireless internet

The critical connection to the internet is the overriding factor in differentiating smart thermostats from past versions. This allows a multitude of possibilities such as smartphone accessibility and control. Generally speaking, you are able to modify your comfort settings from anywhere. Did you not remember to decrease the temperature when departing on a family excursion? Don’t worry about it. All you need to do is access the intuitive Vivint app on your smartphone and take care of it. There are various other tasks you can complete with the app, including:

  • Shift between heating and cooling
  • Adjust your system to a specific mode such as vacation, home, or sleep
  • Turn your fan on or off
  • Receive notifications when settings are automatically or manually adjusted

Modify the temperature by simply saying a command

Your wireless connection gives you one more amazing bonus as you are able to link your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you want to keep comfy on a chilly mid-winter night and you don’t want to get up from your snug spot in the recliner, just speak 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 a higher level by using its built-in Smart Assistant. When integrated into your smart home, the thermostat has the ability to utilize a range of sensors and other features like geolocation to discern if you’re home or away. Additionally, this intelligent component will even learn your preferences and adjust accordingly. For instance, if you usually like things to be cooler in the evenings, the thermostat will take note and change it for you.

Integrated safety protection to counteract a fire

The automated functionality also is important to your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat has an emergency shutoff of your HVAC equipment when fire is detected to control the escalation of flames and smoke. You can also program it instantaneously turn on the exhaust fan to help vent your home.

Lower your utility bills in Bozeman

Your smart thermostat’s power to adjust HVAC settings by itself and your ability to modify them from any location isn’t just convenient, it’s smart for your pocketbook. If you change temperatures 5 to 10 degrees for whenever you are away, you can save quite a bit - up to 10% on utility costs.
