What is a smart thermostat?

A smart thermostat is a WiFi-enabled device that adjusts your home’s temperature settings for your desired comfort. Whether you’re looking to save money while you’re away from home or working to lower your home’s energy usage, purchasing a smart thermostat is a great way to help you do both. 

Not your dad’s programmable thermostat: A common misconception is that smart thermostats are just newly-designed programmable thermostats. 

  • Programmable thermostats do offer basic scheduling so you can save energy and money while you’re away from home, but typically offer less flexibility for your personal timing preferences
  • Smart thermostats can “learn” your home’s behavior and adjust the temperature automatically; plus, you can remotely manage your thermostat directly from your smartphone
