Take control of comfort
Web-enabled smart thermostats allows users to securely monitor and adjust their business temperatures remotely. In addition to programming and multistage scheduling, smart thermostats have digital temperature sensors, may offer humidity control options, and can store your device’s temperature settings and history online. If you’re using all of the features a smart thermostat offers, you could potentially save up to 50% of your HVAC energy consumption compared with using a standard digital thermostat.

The programming capabilities of cloud thermostats are more advanced than those of digital thermostats. They go beyond the 5-2 programming option, offering 365-day programming. You can even schedule special holiday settings for five years out.
History and Analysis
Unlike digital thermostats, cloud devices save the history of HVAC use online. You can access and analyze the stored data to identify use patterns and diagnose failures. In-depth and consistent data recording can help you troubleshoot problems such as imbalanced heating.
You can set notifications to alert you about extreme building temperatures and parts requiring maintenance. Digital models display a limited number of reminders based on HVAC run time or set intervals, but cloud thermostats can send you email alerts based on the live performance and historical performance of the HVAC system.
