Smart thermostats automate HVAC systems for maximum comfort and energy savings. Some models have much better automation capabilities than others. Below are some of the models that offer the best smart-thermostat technology.
Ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control
This Ecobee thermostat has a strong companion app and an exceptional touch-screen interface that make it extremely easy to use. It has a built-in Alexa speaker and sensitive digital microphones that allow it to hear you excellently.
With the Ecobee, you can place multipurpose sensors in different rooms. These enable the thermostat to instruct your heating and cooling system to heat or cool the rooms that you’re in.
Nest Learning Thermostat, Third Generation
The Nest Learning Thermostat offers arguably the best learning algorithms on the market. It adjusts your heating and cooling automatically based on your routines, which it learns over time. The geofencing feature, coupled with its built-in sensors, allow it to turn itself down when nobody’s home.
This device can be integrated with other Nest products, which include security cameras, alarm systems, and carbon monoxide detectors.
Nest Thermostat E
You’ll love this thermostat if you want Nest’s smart-thermostat technology at a midrange price. The E is also highly automated, featuring learning, geofencing, and an occupancy sensor just like the Third Generation Learning Thermostat — but at a lower price. However, it has a lower contrast display and supports fewer HVAC wiring configurations than its costlier sibling.
Honeywell Home T9 Smart Thermostat
The T9 thermostat has one of the smartest sensor accessories. It comes with remote temperature, proximity, and humidity sensors. Its reliable geofencing capabilities enable it to adjust to home or away mode depending on your smartphone’s location. The T9 comes with a straightforward app. It has optional Google Assistant and Alexa voice controls.
The excellent smart-thermostat technology that these devices offer makes them effortless to operate and gives you great control over your HVAC system and heating and cooling bills.
