Daikin One+ Thermostat
The Daikin brand name has long been associated with innovation and top-notch quality. This highly capable smart thermostat is one of the newest additions to their long line of successes. This is an intelligent air controller for your home, which can serve as your cloud-connected central manager for controlling the humidity, air quality, and temperature within the household.
The thermosat is compatible with a wide range of HVAC systems, including air conditioners, gas furnaces, heat pumps, and air handlers. It’s equipped with a high-resolution touch screen that allows you to monitor system status clearly and easily. Ease of use is a huge benefit because from any menu within the system, returning home with a single tap on the screen will be possible. It also comes with a WiFi radio that can be connected to the cloud via your home router, so you can access your homeowner mobile app.
Installation of this thermostat is a breeze since it has a built-in bubble level, which ensures that mounting can be done professionally, even by someone unfamiliar with the process. One of the more useful and innovative features of this unit is the LED light bar situated on its bottom surface, illuminating the wall beneath it. The light bar is color-coded to instantly identify which system mode is in effect: blue for cooling mode and orange-red for heating mode.
Ecobee Smart Thermostat
This smart thermostat can learn the different heating and cooling patterns you normally desire for your home, and it can also learn how long it takes to achieve any specific temperature. That allows it to commence heating or cooling ahead of time, so that, for instance, by the time you wake up in the morning, your home has already achieved the appropriate temperature you desire.
When used to its fullest capabilities, it can save you as much as 23% on utility bills because your HVAC system will be operating much more efficiently and using less power. The SmartSensor feature included with the thermostat can provide the highest comfort level to all those rooms most frequently used by family members. It has Alexa built-in for additional ease of control, so household occupants can use that voice management.
It is also compatible with either iOS or Android smartphones, which means you can control the temperature in the home remotely, wherever you happen to be. That will allow you to have the home heated up while you’re still driving home from work, so you can arrive and be immediately comfortable. The Smart Home & Away feature will automatically detect household occupants’ presence and lower or raise temperatures accordingly so that heating or cooling is not wasted while family members are absent. At your option, you can get the free software upgrade called eco+, which helps your Ecobee thermostat to adapt more fully to your household schedule for greater comfort and additional savings.
You can control your Nest thermostat using the Google Home app, so that temperature management can be accomplished literally from any location you happen to be at the moment. This smart thermostat will automatically adjust the interior temperature when you aren’t home, so you can save on energy usage and not waste heating or cooling cycles. One of the major benefits of this ultra-sophisticated device is that it can still be installed by a non-professional in easily less than 30 minutes, despite the complexity of its inner operation.
The Nest thermostat also has a feature that provides you with notifications about your heating or cooling system, so you can react to any conditions which might require your intervention. Since it is continuously monitoring your HVAC system’s performance, it will identify situations where a potential issue might be impacting performance and then send you an email or a notification via the Google Home app.
The thermostat has another feature called SavingsFinder, which learns your household heating and cooling habits, then suggests ways for you to achieve additional savings by adopting more efficient patterns. The Quick Schedule feature permits easy programming of the thermostat, so you can build in typical heating and cooling requirements and avoid having to make constant adjustments throughout the day. You’ll also receive helpful reminders from your Nest thermostat, such as when it’s time for regular maintenance, so you won’t be obliged to remember this information.
