Who knew that the modern marvel of air conditioning is more than 110 years old? And yet, one component of air conditioning still badly needs an update: the thermostat.
What’s wrong with the average home thermostat? Right now, the traditional thermostat meets only one goal: keeping the room where it’s mounted at a comfortable temperature. But what about the rest of the house? After all, no one works, sleeps or watches TV in the hallway. And for homeowners with an average thermostat, summer is a time when the need for a better thermostat kicks into high gear. Well, now there is one: a smart thermostat.
No More One-Room View
Unlike a traditional thermostat, a smart thermostat has more than a one-room view of the home. A smart thermostat has multiple temperature sensors you can place in rooms throughout the home: in living areas, bedrooms, and even the kitchen. And as the homeowner, you can select which of those sensors will be “in control” of the others on any given day.
Want the kitchen to be the coolest room in the home while you make Sunday dinner? You can program your smart thermostat for that. Want the living room to be the coolest room in the home every day? No problem.
There’s no more one-room view of the home with a smart thermostat. If you want the room that’s in charge to be 72 degrees, then the thermostat will cool down the house until that room is perfect. This virtually eliminates the age-old problem of the “hot room” (that room of the home that never, ever seems to be comfortable enough in the summer no matter what the thermostat says).
Where the Security System Comes In
Where does the home security system come in? A smart thermostat and all of its accompanying temperature sensors are all designed to connect to your security system. Using your home security mobile app, you can control the thermostat the same way you control your alarm, cameras and electronic locks. It’s another feature that’s available exclusively to owners of smart home security systems.
If you still own a traditional security system without all these capabilities – including a smart thermostat – then F.E. Moran Security Solutions is ready to help. Contact us this summer to inquire about a smart home security system that gives you total control over your air conditioning along with all your home security features. We look forward to hearing from you!
