Titan Alarm is taking the Smart Home Energy Management System to a new level, we are now rolling out the Alarm.com Smart Home Thermostat Temperature Sensors. With these sensors your Smart Thermostat will now be enabled to take smarter steps to maximize energy savings and the comfortability of your home.
With out new wireless Temperature Sensors, you can deliver precision comfort to all of the rooms that you spend most of your time, not just the hallway that your thermostat happens to live.
Follow these steps to really utilize the Temperature Sensors:
1: Install Sensors in High Traffic Rooms.
Chances are that the room your thermostat lives in, isn’t the room that you spend the most time in. Even if you have your current thermostat installed in your living room, that doesn’t mean the thermostat knows the temperature in your bedroom.
The answer to this problem is to install a Temperature Sensor on the wall of each room that has a high area of traffic, like your kitchen, bedrooms, living room and dining room.
2: Adjust comfort to the room you’re in
Now that you have temperature sensors around the house, you can specify which sensor commands the thermostat.
For example, let’s say that it’s bedtime. Downstairs, where the thermostat sits, the temperature is a comfortable 72 degrees. Upstairs, though, it’s 76 degrees—too warm for a comfortable night.
Simply open your Alarm.com app and tell your smart thermostat to optimize the home’s temperature for the bedroom until your bedroom sensor registers 72.
3: Create a Schedule
Creating a schedule is actually pretty easy, and the nice thing is, you can have it follow your daily routine and make your house that much more comfortable as you go about your day.
In this example, the user is assigning different sensors to each of the thermostat modes in the Alarm.com application.
For energy savings during the day (Away), they use the thermostat. For evenings (Home), they use the living room sensor. At night (Sleep) the bedroom sensor takes over.
4: Be sure to use your other thermostat features
Temperature Sensors are just one of the many ways of using your smart thermostat! Make sure you learn more about the system by contacting Titan Alarm today! Give us a call 602-680-4567
