A smart thermostat doesn't just oversee your home's temperature settings. These app-driven devices make it possible to adjust your thermostat from your phone while at the store, on vacation or just on the couch. Many smart thermostats also work with Alexa, Google and Siri, making voice control another way to adjust settings. There are also new smart features like motion sensor or occupancy sensor that can change the temperature for you. And when you're away, the option to switch to away mode offers energy efficiency. When purchasing a thermostat, you can search for compatibility with Apple HomeKit and other smart home systems.
We regularly install Honeywell thermostats. They are easy to operate and last many years. The Honeywell T4Pro is our current go-to. This is a great smart thermostat that's easy to use and has many features including smart response technology and easy to read display.
