Smart thermostats are the rage in the smarthome market and beyond as homeowners and businesses are looking to manage their heating and cooling systems via smartphones. It is also a great way to add more efficient management to your systems and save money.
While you are looking at the market, consider smart thermostats that are part of the LockState Connect platform. An overview of it is featured here on Consumer Reports. The LS-60i offers the accessibility to manage the systems remotely, and even sends alerts.
The product is also great for vacation rental owners. Guests may leave the AC on when no one will be arriving for a while. With the LS-60i, just turn it down via your phone and save money.
Office and building management companies are also adding them to manage properties remotely. With the LockState Connect Portal, the property manager can see actual temperatures in the area outside, and make adjustments to the HVAC system.
