Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night because you were too hot or freezing cold? How about coming home in the summer to a home that feels more like an oven or worse yet, a home that has been ice cold for no reason and wasting electricity? Adding Thermostat control to your Automation system is extremely easy and there are many benefits you will enjoy for years to come.
Automated climate control systems offer a vast number of benefits:
- Control your thermostat with your mobile devices and from anywhere in the world
- Set customizable schedules for your home that will keep your house comfortable while saving energy. If no one is home during the day, you can set a schedule for the weekdays that your thermostat is set to 80 degrees and drastically reduce the amount of wasted electricity.
- Want to come home to a cool home, use the app on your mobile phone when you are leaving your office to turn the temperature setting down or run a "Welcome Home" scene and walk into a comfortably cooled home.
- If you participate in an energy savings plan with the electric company, then you can program your automation system so the air conditioning system won’t turn on during those peak hours, unless of course you manually change the settings yourself.
