What Makes Smart Thermostats So Smart?

The idea behind smart thermostats is that they can make heating or cooling our homes a more efficient process.
Because smart thermoststats are Wi-Fi enabled, they may be controlled wirelessly, allowing the user to adjust the set points through your smart phone. So you can turn your heating on when you're on your way back from a weekend away, or off when you pop out unexpectedly.
