Smart thermostats provide extra comfort, money savings, and convenience. If you are looking to upgrade the thermostat in your Saint Petersburg, Florida, home be sure to look for the following smart thermostat features.

Wi-Fi Capability

One of the best aspects of having a smart thermostat is that you can access it while you are away from your home, whether you are at work or away on vacation. With Wi-Fi capability, you can adjust the temperature remotely via a mobile device or computer. When you are coming home from work or vacation, you can set the temperature to a comfortable level before you walk in the door.

Compatible with Home’s Automation System

Choose a smart thermostat, such as one of our Trane models. You can use it with other home automation devices to help control the temperature in your home with ease. Instead of using your mobile device to change the temperature, simply ask the integrated voice-controlled speaker to change it for you. The home automation device connects with the smart thermostat to do the work for you.

Energy Tracking and Reports

In order to monitor your energy usage, it is wise to have a smart thermostat that sends you daily, weekly, and monthly energy reports. You can see what times of day you’re using the most energy, and make modifications, if necessary, to adjust the thermostat to improve energy conservation.

Color Touchscreen Interface

Being able to clearly read the temperature settings is a bonus for having a smart thermostat. Choose a thermostat that has a proximity sensor so that it lights up in full color as you approach it.
