What Is a Smart Thermostat?
If you’re still using a traditional thermostat, or are considering an upgrade, think about a WiFi smart thermostat.
A smart thermostat fits in with the many devices we use in our homes now to make life easier, such as smart refrigerators that can order food when you get low, smart faucets that can measure out water to the drop, and smart lights that sense when the sun goes down. Plus, like all of these smart devices, you can control the smart thermostat right from your iPhone or Android device.
What’s great about having a smart thermostat is that you can program it to keep your home cool when you’re not home to save money on your energy bill, and to have it kick on before you get home so the house is warmed up and ready when you arrive. And, unlike traditional thermostats, smart thermostats give you more precise control over your home’s temperature, which allows you to save energy and money.

Smart Thermostats vs. Programmable Thermostats
Programmable thermostats are a step up from the traditional models because they allow you to program the temperature so you can base it on your time at and away from home. So, let’s say you work a 9-5, Monday - Friday job, you can program the thermostat to work while you’re home and to cool down when you’re at work. The benefit of a programmable thermostat is that they offer a variety of programs that you can use out of the box to dial in the perfect settings.
On the other hand, the smart thermostat gives you greater control over the temperature than the programmable model. Many claim that you can save up to 20 percent on your energy bills by making the switch to a smart WiFi thermostat. And unlike the programmable models, you can control the smart thermostat from anywhere with your smartphone, and many of these models integrate with Google Home and Apple’s HomeKit.
