Consider being able to control your home’s heating and cooling systems by vocalizing a command or by going to an app on your smartphone. Now, take it a step further and think about having something that will learn your preferred settings and automatically adjust. As you can see, smart thermostats are beneficial technological advancements capable of adding more convenience, energy savings, and even safety to your home. Continue reading to see how they work and what they are able to do for your family.

How are smart thermostats different from standard models?

Even though smart thermostats provide an array of unique features, they are comparable in a couple of ways to the versions we have always used. For example, they are hardwired directly to your heating and cooling system. You can also manually raise and lower the temperature by engaging with the unit connected to your wall. But that’s about where the similarities finish.

Los Angeles smart thermostats link to your home’s wireless internet

The critical connection to your wireless network is the main way to differentiate smart thermostats from standard models. Having your HVAC equipment paired to the internet gives you access and control like you’ve previously never had. Essentially, you may adjust your comfort settings from wherever you are. Did you not remember to turn down the settings when leaving on a family excursion? No problem. Just access the convenient Vivint app on your mobile device and quickly change it. There are various other actions you can take with the app, such as:

  • Switch between heating and cooling
  • Set your system to a specific mode such as home, vacation, or sleep
  • Activate or deactivate your fan
  • Receive updates if comfort levels are automatically or manually adjusted

Modify comfort levels by simply saying a command

Your wireless connection gives you another amazing advantage as you may pair your device to an Amazon or Google smart speaker. If you would like to keep comfortable on a chilly winter’s evening and you don’t feel like leaving your toasty spot on the sofa, just say a command like ”Hey Google, set the temperature to 73 degrees”.

Vivint Smart Thermostat will update automatically

The Vivint Smart Thermostat can take convenience to another level by turning to its available Smart Assistant. When part of your smart home, the thermostat can employ various sensors and other capabilities like geolocation to determine if you’re home or away. Not to mention, this adaptive piece of equipment will actually learn your preferences and change settings correspondingly. For example, if you generally prefer the house a bit cooler at night, the thermostat will observe that and adjust it for you.

Built-in safety protection in case of fire

The automated aspect of your device also plays a role in your safety. The Vivint Smart Thermostat has an emergency HVAC shutoff when fire is detected to limit the escalation of flames and smoke. You can also program it instantly activate the exhaust fan to assist in venting your home.

Reduce your energy costs in Los Angeles

Your smart thermostat’s power to adjust HVAC settings automatically and your ability to modify them remotely isn’t just a nice feature, it’s smart for your pocketbook. If you adjust the settings up to 10 degrees for times you are away, you are able to save a good deal - up to 10% on energy expenses.
