Picture having the ability to manage your home’s comfort settings by saying a command or by using an app on your cell phone. Now, take it even further and visualize having a device that will actually learn your routine and automatically adjust. As you may soon realize, smart thermostats are extraordinary pieces of technology capable of adding more convenience, energy reduction, and even safety to your household. Continue reading to see how they work and what they are able to do for you.

How do smart thermostats differ from standard models?

Notwithstanding their impressive capabilities, smart thermostats work in a similar fashion to standard styles. Namely, they are connected directly to your HVAC system. You may also manually adjust your home’s temperature by engaging with the hardware fastened to your wall. But that’s pretty much where the commonalities conclude.

Las Vegas smart thermostats link to your home’s wireless internet

You are able to summarize the difference between traditional thermostats and smart models in two words - wireless internet. This opens a multitude of new features like remote access and control. Essentially, you are able to modify your heating and cooling levels from any location. Did you neglect to turn down the settings when leaving on vacation? Don’t worry about it. All you need to do is go to the convenient Vivint app on your mobile device and quickly change it. There are various other things you can do with the app, like:

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

Alter comfort levels by simply saying a command

Your internet connection provides an additional amazing bonus as you are able to sync your unit to a Google or Amazon smart speaker. If you want to stay warm on a chilly winter night and you don’t feel like leaving your snug seat in the recliner, just give a command like “Alexa, turn up the thermostat three degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat actually adjusts on its own

The Vivint Smart Thermostat actually takes convenience to another level with its available Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat has the ability to use a range of sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to determine if you’re at home or not. In addition, this adaptive device will actually learn your preferences and adjust correspondingly. For example, if you generally prefer the temperature lower over night, the thermostat will observe that and do it for you.

Built-in safety measure in case of fire

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

Reduce your energy costs in Las Vegas

Your smart thermostat’s power to adjust HVAC settings on its own and your ability to change them remotely isn’t just nice to have, it’s good for your bottom line. If you tweak your comfort levels up to 10 degrees for times you aren’t home, you can save quite a bit - up to 10% on utility bills.
