WiFi Thermostat Lets You Control Home Temperatures with a Smartphone

Mascot Mechanical Thermostat Install and Service

WiFi thermostats make programmable thermostats even better at saving money on home cooling and heating bills – as much as $300 – $400 per year. With the Internet-enabled Honeywell Wi-Fi 9000 you can monitor and change settings anywhere you can use your smart phone!

Programmable thermostats have been around for several years and have established their value as energy- and money-saving devices. The idea is beautifully simple: keep your air conditioning (or heating) running less when you don’t need it, like when you’re not at home, or asleep. A programmable thermostat does that for you, so you don’t have to remember to do it every day. Now, WiFi thermostats go beyond mere convenience by adding new functionality. Some utilities now are developing programs to help consumers manage usage to save money and help prevent brown-outs.

Internet Meets Thermostat

Until recently, you had to physically enter the information into the programmable thermostat on your wall. With a WiFi thermostat you can do that and a lot more with a smart phone, tablet or other computer, using a free app. Here are the more popular features and benefits:
  • Receive local weather updates and warnings
  • Display indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity
  • Manage multiple thermostats simultaneously, if your home has more than one HVAC system
  • Keep accurate time during power failures
  • Automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time
  • Adjust fan controls remotely
  • Check to see your system is heating or cooling properly when you’re not home
  • High-definition, multi-screen display you can customize, even down to screen color, to complement interior décor
  • Security settings to make sure only people you want will have access to settings

Honeywell WiFi 9000

Honeywell offers several WiFi thermostat models, including the popular Honeywell WiFi 9000. In addition to its remote capabilities, this thermostat “learns” from your temperature settings and re-programs itself to adjust to your usage patterns. You can override those settings at any time, however. The WfFi 9000 will send warnings to you when it detects a greater than normal temperature shift in your home (Honeywell claims accuracy to +\- 1 degree). It also has built-in sensors to monitor indoor humidity levels. It even lets you know when it’s time to replace your air filter! If your WiFi router crashes, the WiFi 9000 will continue to function as a manually programmable, touch-screen thermostat. Honeywell provides a free mobile app, as well as software upgrades for the thermostat, as new features become available.
