The battle for convenience will rage on eternal. In our modern lives, smart technology has made shopping, travelling, planning and just plain living easier. This isn’t just for the joy of creature comforts; these changes have made our lives more efficient, which increases productivity, saves energy; in short, it makes society better. Air conditioning, never a technology to be left by the wayside when it comes to sweeping economic changes, has become smart. Today, we’re going to look at how smart thermostats can make your home a more livable, convenient, energy efficient space.
The iComfort S30 is a really incredible piece of technology that can improve air quality and comfort in your home. The first way that it does this is by monitoring reports from climate agencies in your ZIP code to detect whether or not there are high numbers of allergens and pollutants in the air. When it sees this is the case, it activates a fan in order to block out the pollutants; great for those of us with seasonal allergies! To improve comfort, it monitors the outside temperature, the inside temperature, and the indoor humidity, in order to calculate how it should cool the air. This is because humidity causes our bodies to feel hot and cold differently; so when you put the thermostat at 72, it will calculate what feel like 72, and set it to the perfect temperature.
The S30 also has a couple of nifty features to save power and work on your schedule. The system uses your phone’s GPS to determine when you’re away from your home; when this is the case, it goes into power-saving mode, saving you money, and helping the environment. When you’re on your way back, it adjusts, bringing your home back to the temperature you like. The S30 only needs to be programmed once; it’s smart, so it learns your schedule and adjusts accordingly, so you’ll always be comfortable. You can also communicate with the thermostat using Amazon Alexa and Apple HomeKit, so you can change the temperature without even getting out of bed!
The monitoring technologies in the S30 are also a tremendous boon to anyone who wants an efficient use of their energy and money. You can view hourly reports about temperature ranges, how long the unit is running for, and more, on your personalized web portal. You’ll also receive monthly reports about your AC usage; perfect for adjusting your schedule as needed! More impressive still, the smart technology detects when there’s a problem with your unit, and then lets you and us know about the problem; that way, your maintenance never gets away from you, as you’ll always know at the first sign of trouble.
