Smart Thermostats Save On Austin Energy Bills

Smart Thermostats provide energy-saving temperature control for your home. This EcoBee4 thermostat has an easy-to-read, 3.5″ LCD color touchscreen with a 320 x 480 resolution. Alexa, Google Assistant, HomeKit are all supported. Audio is possible thanks to built-in microphones and a speaker.


Ecobee systems can be installed with extra temperature and occupancy sensors to give the home’s comfort system extra data to make your home cooler in areas further away from the onboard thermostat sensor.

Traditional Thermostats Are Becoming Rare

In the past thermostats have fallen into two categories: non-programmable and programmable. Non-Programmable thermostats are the most affordable, but very antiquated. They require a manual temperature setting and manual setting heat or cooling to cycle your homes HVAC units, and can be rather imprecise. Programmable thermostats offer a digital interface with time period programming, which will automatically adjust the heat and/or cool temperature based on time, and often they allow for multiple set points points per day. However, neither of these older-style thermostats come close to the technology available with today’s smart home Wi-Fi thermostats.

Smart Thermostats Are Becoming Standard In Austin

Smart Wi-Fi thermostats are the next evolution of heating and cooling control in your home. They build upon the basic temperature setting, scheduling and digital interface options of non-programmable and programmable thermostats with a variety of added smart home features. Some of these smart features include improved energy efficiency and feedback, remote programming, geofencing, learning and alerts. Once these smart Wi-Fi thermostats are installed and synced up with a Wi-Fi network, you will have remote access from a smart device via an app, all from the comfort and convenience of a smartphone or tablet virtually anywhere you access to the web. The future of smart home comfort and control is now – no matter where you are, a smart home Wi-Fi thermostat for home automation keeps you connected to your home with control at your fingertips.

Algorithms That Learn About Your Comfort

Wake up and get ready in a bathroom that’s not freezing cold after you get out of the shower. Set schedules to warm up your master suite so you can walk into a toasty bathroom allowing you to prepare for your work day comfortably. The Nest smart thermostat algorithms pick up on your preferences of temperature throughout the day. Occupancy sensors tell the WiFi thermostat you are leaving to work, so it might not keep the A/C or Heating system as high in order to save energy.

Advanced User Sensing

Some smart thermostats have sensors detecting a radius you’re within to determine if you’re on your way home from work, early or late. Set to 3 miles or 30 and walk into the comfortable temperature of your home.

Reports That Show Past Energy Use

Most smart thermostats learn about your preferences. Access energy use reports on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, basis and uses real-time data if needed. You can program the system to use scheduling based on how much energy you’d like to save.

Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
