A useful feature of nearly every modern thermostat is the programmable option. On some models, you can program the temperature, humidification, dehumidification, and ventilation of your home’s HVAC system for seven-day cycles. If you are at work during the day, you can program your thermostat to turn on before you arrive home in the afternoon. This will save you money, and allow your unit to run only when you need it! More advanced programmable options, like the Honeywell Lyric® Thermostat, understand that you are always on the go and that your life does not fit into a rigid schedule. Instead of operating on a fixed schedule, this thermostat uses your smartphone location to automatically adjust the temperature of your home as you come and go using Geo-Fencing technology – delivering comfort when you are home and savings when you are away.
Learning thermostats commit your schedule to memory so it can program itself and you can control it from your phone. The Nest thermostat programs itself in about a week, and creates a personalized schedule based on the temperature changes you have made. In addition, it continually adapts to your changing life. If the thought of programmable thermostats seems too complicated, an auto-learning thermostat might be the answer for you!

Modern thermostats have many features that enhance home comfort while saving your HVAC system from overuse. Some of these features include:
Wi-Fi & Smart Phone Connectivity
Easy to connect, and easy to install, many modern thermostat models connect to your home’s existing wireless internet network with ease. Because it is connected to the Wi-Fi network, you can have control over your home comfort from your computer, tablet, or smart phone. No matter where you are, you have the power to monitor and manage home’s comfort and energy usage.
Some modern thermostats are equipped with hands-free voice control features. A thermostat with these features, like the Honeywell 9000 Voice Control, can recognize voice commands from across the room, even in a busy household. Because these thermostats have Wi-Fi capabilities, the cloud-based voice recognition software will automatically update as Honeywell, and other brands add new voice commands and other enhancements.
Years ago, Honeywell thermostats were small round devices attached to the walls of our homes. They had few functions and only allowed for manual temperature adjustments. Fortunately, technology has come a long way since then!
Today’s technological advances have opened a new door in terms of how we achieve home comfort. Modern, digital thermostats boast many features like auto-learning, 7-day programming, smartphone access, weather forecasts, humidity control and more.
