Smart Home Spotlight: Temperature

The Hottest & Coolest in Smart Home Temperature Technology.

Lately, Temperature Technology has been a hot topic in the world of Smart Home innovation. Companies like Nest and Honeywell have been revolutionizing home comfort in very cool ways with products that adjust the temperature based on your daily activities and thermostats that sense the humidity of a room.

According to the recent Coldwell Banker Real Estate Survey aimed at uncovering what smart features home buyers are looking for when purchasing a home, 57% of home buyers said they are interested in temperature control smart home amenities.  So, if you’re looking to make a minimally invasive, functional upgrade to your home that will make your home more attractive to buyers (and may save you money as a homeowner), try updating your thermostat or cooling system with one of four products listed below.

Here are the Top 4 Smart Temperature products for Homeowners:

1.  Nest Learning Thermostat – Owned by Google, Nest is the pioneer of smart thermostats. Instead of leaving your thermostat at one temperature all day long, wasting valuable energy (and money!), the Nest learns your daily activities and adjusts the temperature accordingly, saving you up to 20% on your heating and cooling bills.  What’s more?  It’s easy to install yourself in about 30 minutes and can be controlled remotely via the Nest smart phone app. Pretty cool, right?

2.  Honeywell Lyric Thermostat – Honeywell introduced its first thermostat product, The Round, in 1953 and has been innovating temperature technology ever since.  Not only does Honeywell’s new Lyric thermostat use geo-fencing to control temperatures while you’re away, but it can also read the humidity levels in your home.  Click here to see how much Lyric could help you save, simply based on your location.
