As the temperature drops, the costs of your energy bills may rise in the winter months. Staying cozy and comfortable doesn’t have to break the bank. Learn how smart home solutions can help keep your energy costs down.
Smart Thermostat Schedules
Being able to schedule your smart thermostat’s temperature according to your schedule gives you total control of your HVAC energy usage. If you have ever had the task of programming a thermostat on the wall, you will love our smart thermostat and mobile app. It makes it easy to create custom schedules, fine-tuned to save energy when you are not there while still making things comfortable when you are, all from your phone. Our smart thermostats are also ENERGY STAR® certified providing you with the most energy-efficient HVAC control.
In addition to scheduling, our smart thermostat also saves energy by reacting to your activity and location. Our Alarm.com Places feature uses your smartphone location to determine whether you’re home or away (from a radius you set) and turns your heating to either “comfort” or “savings” accordingly. Come back to a cozy home without having to let the heater run the whole time you are out.
Lightbulbs have come a long way in terms of energy efficiency, but you can still cut down on waste by automating them. Our smart lights can turn on and off automatically according to the time of day, or when it gets dark, or whether you are home. They are also easy to control with Scenes: our quick, multi-device commands that make controlling your home easy.
