What Is a Smart Thermostat and What Can I Do With it?

A smart thermostat is typically a thermostat with some style of wireless communication (i.e. Z-Wave, WiFi, etc.) built-in. This wireless communication gives you and your thermostat new monitoring and control functionality beyond that of a traditional thermostat. 


Using Your Smart Thermostat:

The wireless communication you get with a smart thermostat allows you to remotely control your home’s temperature settings from anywhere using the mobile app. Monitor your thermostat’s activity throughout the day and create Schedules based on your daily routine to reduce energy usage and save on monthly energy bill. For more information about Schedules, head to our How Do I Set Up a Schedule in the SmartRent Mobile App? article. To make your life easier, create a Scene that automatically adjusts your desired thermostat settings while also performing other helpful actions, such as adjusting your lighting. Learn more about creating Scenes with our How Do I Create, Edit, and Delete a Scene in the SmartRent Mobile App? article.
