Temperature Control with Smartphone Home Security from SEi

by | Dec 27, 2018 | Blog, Home Automation

Having a smart home used to be a thing we all joked about in the past. (Anyone remember the movie Smart House?) In today’s world of Alexa’s and Google Homes, a smart house is becoming the new norm.

Wouldn’t it be nice to take control of your home no matter where you are? Not to mention save energy, money, and time. During the holidays, many spend their days bouncing from house to house, traveling, or going on vacations. Blasting your heat while you’re not home seems like such a waste, doesn’t it?

Stop throwing away your money and start controlling your thermostat with your smartphone! SEi offers a mobile app called inTouch to integrate your home to your thermostat with the touch of a button.

Our Z-Wave Thermostat

SEi’s Z-Wave thermostat can take your home to the next level. Our thermostats allow you to control your thermostat remotely, by adjusting the temperature directly from your smart phone. That means, whether you’re having dinner with your Aunt Karen down the street or your flight just landed in Cancun, you have the ability to check your thermostat from your mobile device.

Consider another possibility: a snow storm just hit your house but you’re out of town. You have the ability to check your temperature to make sure it doesn’t get so low your pipes burst (but in case they do, you should probably have a water monitor). The possibilities of this coming in handy are endless. How else could this benefit you and your home?

Benefits of Smart House Temperature Control

  • Tap into comfort: View and change settings from anywhere on your smartphone or WiFi tablet.
  • Have a set schedule: if everyone is out of the house by 8 and doesn’t return until 5, have the heat turn down at 8:30 and kick on at 4. You won’t even notice the temperature difference until you get your next utilities bill.
  • Stay in the know: receive alerts on your mobile device when temperature or humidity is too high or too low with our temperature monitoring.
  • Set the scene: If your thermostat is connected to a SEi home security system (which it does not have to be!) you can create the perfect environment to come home to. For example, if you disarm your alarm from your smartphone upon pulling into your driveway, our smart home system can turn on specific lights, change the temperature, and even open the garage. It’s all a part of our home automation.
