Thermostats are getting smarter. No longer do they just display temperature– now, they connect to your phone to make your Tampa AC system smarter and more efficient. Suddenly, it’s a lot easier to become the victor of your family’s thermostat war. These modern WiFi thermostats also look quite a bit cooler on your wall than the old-fashioned ones. But one of our favorite features of the Lyric WiFi thermostat by Honeywell, the preferred thermostat of Air Express, is geofencing. Whenever we have a customer request thermostat installation in Tampa, that’s our go-to option for replacement. Read on to find out why!
What is Geofencing?
Geofencing is the creation of an invisible boundary around your home or office, which creates a zone. This geofence, once enabled, automatically notices when you enter your zone and when you leave it, triggering your devices into action. When connected to your thermostat, geofencing enables you to control the temperature of your home based on customized presets. For example, if you like your home to be 73 while you’re there and 78 while you’re not, you can enable your thermostat to change itself based on your patterns of coming and going. That way, you can come home to the correct temperature every day without ever having to think about it. Pretty cool, right?
Automating your system through geofencing improves the efficiency of your air conditioning system and the comfort of your home. Long gone are the days of coming home to a hot house, staring at your thermostat, and begging for the temperature to drop. Equally frustrating, you may leave your home for work in the morning and realize that you forgot to adjust the thermostat up before you left– but you don’t have time to turn around. We all have the best intentions when we set out to lower our energy bills, but it’s often impossible to remember everything we’re supposed to do every day, especially when work gets crazy and family obligations get in the way. Geofencing helps alleviate this anxiety by allowing you to forget about your thermostat completely. You’ll only need to modify it from your phone if you absolutely need to– ie. when your dinner party for six turns into a house party of 36. Party on, friends.
