Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are just the latest addition to the smart home technology wave that is carrying everyday people into the 21st century. The market competition is stiff, with several well-known tech companies producing state-of-the-art, cutting-edge smart thermostats, all with their unique features. Here are some of the top-rated thermostats available today!

Google Nest Learning Thermostat

Google’s Nest Learning Thermostat learns your heating and cooling habits and becomes more intuitive over time. If you tend to shut off the HVAC system before you leave for the day and turn it on as soon as you walk in the door, Nest’s learning capabilities will start turning on the AC shortly before you arrive home, so you come home to the perfect temperature. Nest will turn your system off for you as you walk out the door too! If you like to drop the temperature at night so you can sleep soundly, Nest will pick up on that too. This smart thermostat system does not offer zonal control, which many view as a drawback, especially in older homes with multiple radiators. The Google Nest Learning Thermostat is not compatible with Apple’s HomeKit, unfortunately. It does, however, offer compatibility with a broader range of HVAC systems.

Amazon Smart Thermostat

Amazon’s Smart Thermostat is one of the most user-friendly thermostats available. With easy install, this Energy Star certified thermostat makes environmental control a breeze. You can connect with your Amazon Smart Thermostat through any Alexis-enabled device (like the Echo or Echo Dot) or through the Alexis app downloaded to your phone. Alexa-enabled devices allow you to control your smart thermostat with voice commands. Over time, Alexa will begin to make adjustments based on your preferences without you even needing to tell her!

Ecobee Smart Thermostat with Voice Control-

The Ecobee Smart Thermostat is on the higher end of the price range but might be worth the splurge. Ecoobee is compatible with Apple HomeKit, iOS devices, Android devices, and Alexa-enabled devices. Each Ecobee Smart Thermometer comes with Smart Sensors that will shut off the AC when a door or window has been left open for more than five minutes. This feature will save you money and conserve energy. You can also use the Ecobee as an intercom system, sending your message to any room that contains a HomePod, HomePod mini, or Echo device. This thermostat also comes equipped to read the humidity levels in your home, preheat or precool your home based on your expected arrival, and makes slight adjustments based on peak energy usage data to further your savings and energy efficiency.

Mysa Smart Thermostat- baseboard heaters

Not everyone has an HVAC system in their home, especially in the northern regions of the world. Mysa’s Smart Thermostat is the perfect fit to help you manage your electric baseboard or in-floor heating systems. Mysa Smart Thermostat offers multi-zonal control, so you can adjust the temperature in any room of your home.
