Programmable thermostats, smart lights and other devices are more efficient than conventional equipment, so they help you lower your utility bills. With a smart home, you can make sure appliances are only on when someone is using them. Lights can shut off automatically when you leave a room, and you can install zoning for your HVAC system to avoid heating or cooling unoccupied rooms.
Ductless zoning systems have a separate indoor unit for each area. Other zoned systems uses dampers in your ductwork to direct conditioned air where it’s needed most.
A zoning system lets your family members and guests choose the most comfortable temperatures for the zones they’re using. If one person likes a cool environment and another wants warm air, they can both stay comfortable.
Many smart thermostats can raise or lower your home’s temperature automatically based on changes in the outdoor temperature, humidity and other factors. As a result, you can avoid feeling too hot or too cold.
With a smart home, you can use your computer or smartphone to adjust your thermostat, check security cameras or play music in any room. Many smart thermostats can learn your family’s daily routine over time, so you never have to program them.
