Like other smart devices, smart thermostats allow you to remotely control your home's temperature via mobile or internet-connected device. This unique capability makes operation more convenient, offering greater control of heating and cooling, and thus, energy savings.
The benefits don't all involve $$ and energy savings. Hard to use controls and older casings have now been replaced by clean flowing lines, rounded edges, color choices and customizable displays. Not to mention apps, access from your phone or computer, easy installation, voice control and monthly reports tracking your usage.
