Imagine being able to control your home’s comfort settings by vocalizing a simple directive or by utilizing an app on your mobile device. Now, go even further and visualize having something that is able to actually learn your routine and automatically adapt. As you may soon realize, smart thermostats are beneficial pieces of technology capable of adding a new level of convenience, energy savings, and even safety to your life. Take a moment to see how they work and what they can do for you.

How do smart thermostats compare to traditional models?

It’s true that smart thermostats are a thrilling piece of modern equipment but they’re still similar to previous models in a couple of ways. For instance, they are connected right to your heating and cooling system. You are also able to manually manipulate the comfort settings by touching the unit attached to your wall. But that’s about where the similarities end.

Napa smart thermostats link to your home’s wireless network

The primary difference between smart thermostats and older types is that they link to your property’s Wi-Fi network. This allows a wealth of exciting capabilities including remote control and accessibility. Basically, you may adjust your comfort settings from anywhere. Did you neglect to lower the settings when leaving on a family excursion? Don’t worry about it. Simply go to the intuitive Vivint app on your mobile device and take care of it. There are many other actions you can take with the app, like:

  • Change between cooling and heating
  • Set your system to a specific mode like sleep, home, away, and vacation
  • Turn your fan on or off
  • Get updates when settings are manually or automatically adjusted

Modify comfort levels by simply speaking a directive

Your internet connection provides another incredible advantage as you can sync your unit to a Google or Amazon smart speaker. If you’re trying to stay comfy on a cold winter night and you don’t want to get up from your cozy seat in the recliner, just speak an order like “Alexa, turn up the thermostat three degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat will take convenience to another level by turning to its available Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat can use in-home sensors and other features like geolocation to discern if you’re in the house or not. Not to mention, this smart device will actually grasp your preferences and change settings accordingly. For instance, if you usually prefer the house a bit cooler at night, the thermostat will take note and do it for you.

Integrated safety protection to counteract a fire

The automated capability also impacts your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat includes an emergency HVAC shutoff when fire is found to limit the escalation of flames and smoke. You can also program it instantly engage the exhaust fan to assist in venting your house.

Lower your utility expenses in Napa

Your smart thermostat’s potential to alter temperature settings by itself and your ability to manipulate them from any location isn’t just a nice feature, it’s a plus for your bank account. If you change temperatures between 5 to 10 degrees for whenever you aren’t home, you stand to save quite a bit - up to 10% on utility bills.
