Even though the smart home floor at CES was thoroughly wrapped around home security and wellness products, there are still a few smart home thermostats that were introduced for 2018.
The new thermostats come with dashing design solutions and remarkable voice control options. Is that enough to move Nest, ecobee, and Honeywell from the top of the mountain? Maybe not, however let’s take a closer look at the new thermostats to see what they have to offer.
Alarm.com Smart Thermostat
Alarm.com announced a new thermostat that can help you maintain a healthy home environment. Besides energy-saving capabilities, the thermostat can detect if there’s something wrong with your HVAC system and notify you at the first sign of trouble.
How will it know about potential threads? The thermostat uses remote sensors to read the temperature and humidity levels. This way it’ll distribute the heat/cold evenly between the rooms while also alerting you about above-average humidity levels that could cause mold. It’ll also notify you about dangerously low winter temperatures that can often lead to frozen and burst water pipes.
The thermostat is sold as part of the Alarm.com smart home package of products, so it’ll use all the security sensors around the home to respond to different activities and conditions.
