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.
