Remote Access

Are the kids home with their friends while you're at work? Make sure they aren't cranking the AC through the roof with mobile access. You can set your comfort parameters from anywhere with Wi-Fi.


Always turn the temp down when you get up in the morning? After a few days, you can trust your smart thermostat to do it for you with new predictability features. Some even take precipitation and humidity into account.

Human Detection

Set your programmable features by the hour? Pfft. Child’s play! Today’s smart thermostats can adjust themselves based on whether anyone is home, so you don’t have to worry about sticking to a rigid schedule. They can even distinguish between humans and other living things, like the family pet.
