What is a Smart Thermostat?

Smart thermostats, also known as a WiFi thermostat, are simply programmable thermostats with more features. So, these thermostats can be programmed to adjust the temperature that you desire automatically according to a set schedule. For example, if you want the air or heat set temperature to be adjusted automatically while you’re away in order to save energy, you can program that. But, with smart thermostats, it doesn’t stop there.

As their name eludes to, these thermostats can be remotely controlled, adjusted and programmed using a device via the internet. Whatever you can download the corresponding app onto, you can use to control and adjust the temperature of your home or business. This means that whether you are at work, on vacation, or even on a business trip to another country, you can control the temperature from your device(s).

They Can Program Themselves

Rather than having to program the schedules yourself, many smart WiFi thermostats will “learn” certain constant tendencies and base it’s programming around that. They will learn when people are present and active and programs itself to keep the temperature at a comfortable level while also adjusting it for energy savings when people are away.

For example, if you and your family are home before 8 am but are all gone after 8 am, the thermostat will take this into consideration. As the thermostat learns everyone’s tendencies, it can adjust it’s scheduling accordingly. This is accomplished through movement senors.

Energy Savings

With the added convenience and accessibility that these WiFi thermostats offer, increased energy savings will likely be the result. If using these thermostats properly, a savings of up to 20% can be expected on your energy bill. Ecobee actually claims a savings of up to 23%.

Some smart WiFi thermostats even learn when people are present and active and programs itself to keep the temperature at a comfortable level while also adjusting it for energy savings when people are away.
