What Is A Smart Thermostat?

Imagine having the power of your home’s comfort in the palm of your hand. With a smart thermostat, you can have just that and control the temperature with a finger swipe using your favorite touchscreen smart device. 

Smart thermostats replace your home’s existing thermostat and elevate basic climate control to a new level. Beyond simply cooling or heating your home, these thermostats can learn your daily habits in order to reduce your energy expenditure, sense humidity and room occupancy, and make you and your family feel comfortable while at home.

Many of these new, modern thermostats have their eye on design, too, so there’s no need to worry that this innovative device will detract from your existing decor. For example, the new Horizon line from Crestron has an ultra-sleek profile that’s nearly flush with the wall and matches other keypads, dimmers, and switch finishes. Other brands opt for a futuristic flair or an analog aesthetic. You’re sure to find an option that suits you.

Smart Home Integration

Instead of simply adding smart thermostats to your home, you can integrate the devices into your Crestron automation system for the ultimate climate control experience. Add sensors to windows that send a signal to automated shades so that they lower when the room becomes too warm, which in turn also adjusts the thermostat, so the HVAC system is not running too much unnecessarily. 

In the winter, sensors raise shades to let natural sunlight warm your living spaces; the thermostat adjusts so you don’t have to use as much energy to run the heater during the winter. As shades rise during the day, interior lights dim to the perfect setting to avoid excessive brightness and glare as the sun shines through the windows; they brighten as the shades lower in the evenings to better illuminate your home’s interior. A smart thermostat is beyond smart, it’s intelligent!
