Instead of arriving at your Marion County, Florida, home to a cold or hot environment, you could control the temperature before you come home. Find out how a Wi-Fi–enabled thermostat lets you remotely regulate the temperature of your home while coordinating with your schedule and home automation systems.
What Is a Wi-Fi Thermostat?
A Wi-Fi thermostat is a type of thermostat that helps you regulate the temperature of your home remotely. This regulation occurs wirelessly using sensors. A Wi-Fi thermostat connects to your home’s HVAC system, and because the device is wireless, you can adjust the temperature of your home through any type of smart device, such as a smartphone.
Wi-Fi Thermostats Work With Your Home Automation Systems
Home automation systems electronically and automatically control different home features such as appliances, lighting, and temperature. For example, the Carrier Cor thermostat is compatible with Amazon’s Alexa device Echo. Echo is a cloud-based voice service allowing you to control your home’s temperature by simply telling Alexa the temperature setting you want inside your home.
Wi-Fi Thermostats Can Learn Your Schedule and Adjust to the Seasons
When you have a busy lifestyle, a Wi-Fi thermostat is perfect for people always on the move. These smart thermostats can be programmed to adjust temperatures inside your home according to your schedule.
You can also use a Wi-Fi–enabled thermostat to adjust for seasonality changes, such as shifts from winter to spring and summer to fall.
Wi-Fi Thermostats Help Save You Money
So much energy is lost every year because of HVAC units that don’t maintain the correct temperature. Wi-Fi–enabled thermostats can help save you money. You can adjust a Wi-Fi thermostat to automatically cool your home in only a few short hours before you arrive. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save up to 10 percent a year on heating and cooling expenses by adjusting your home’s temperature based on occupancy.
