What is a smart thermostat?
This digital programmable thermostat lets you customize your home  temperature needs to save on heating and air conditioning costs.

What makes it so smart?
Because of it’s wireless internet connection (WiFi),you can closely monitor and control it from your home computer, through a personalized web portal.

What does it look like?
You won’t mind having the Smart Thermostat in your house, with its full-colour interface with bright, easy-to-read graphics.

How does it work?
With its touch screen and internet connection, it can be accessed easily and from anywhere. A “Wizard” function creates a step-by-step guide for programming with ease.

How much will it save me?
According to studies from the Environmental Protection Agency, a programmable thermostat can save homeowners up to 20%.

What can I do on the web portal?
Not only can you program and configure your choices, but you can also control it from anywhere you have internet access. That means, your trip to Tahiti won’t drain your home’s energy if you leave your heat blasting in January – just log in and make the changes. Simple as that.

You can also use local weather information to correspond with your thermostat choices, get email alerts if there if your system detects a problem, and communicate with others in their built in community.
