Today’s thermostats let you do a lot more than just raise or lower the temperature in your home. Many offer a lot of flexibility, remote programmability and let you set the temperature for different zones and various time intervals in one day.
Modern thermostats also have bright, easy to use touch screens and can be remotely programmed with your smartphone or tablet. So if you’ve finished shopping and want a specific room or several, to be a certain temperature when you get home, you can remotely set the thermostat and have that comfortable space waiting for you when you get home.
Weather and Photos
Some can also show you the weather forecast and let you upload a photo to turn your thermostat into a digital photo frame.
Two of the smartest, most popular thermostats are the Nest Smart Thermostat and the Honeywell Thermostat.
