Home Automation with Smart Thermostats remove human error, increase comfort and accessibility, while you save money on energy costs. Temperature and comfort automation allows for control remotely, automatically, or with your voice assistant. When paired with an energy monitoring system, you’ll receive detailed, real time reports on energy usage.
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.
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.
