Extreme Heat Awareness
In New Orleans, we know that our air conditioners are almost always running during the summer trying to keep up with the heat and humidity. When your AC works hardest on extra-hot afternoons, it makes sense to raise your home’s temperature by a few degrees. Our home automation system gives you the option to automatically adjust your thermostat when the temperature outside hits 95 degrees or higher. Since it is still far cooler inside than outside, it would not be very noticeable, especially as the temperature returns to normal when the heat of the day is over.
When your smart thermostat is connected to your home security system, your home’s temperature will adjust when your alarm system is set. When you arm your panel to ‘away’, it knows that your home is empty, and sets back to save money. When you arrive home and disarm your alarm, it knows to make things comfortable again.
