Save on Heating Bills with Home Automation Tools November 12th, 2014
After a brief fall reprieve in home energy costs, get ready to see your bills start to increase again, this time for home heating. But with the right home automation tools, you can manage your utility usage to reduce those expenses.
Mother Nature seems to be unsure which season we are in here in Texas – this fall has been unusually unpredictable! Fortress Security takes the reigns from Mother Nature and gives you control with the Honeywell Z-Wave Thermostat. The savings will add up and you can buy something nice for your significant other or take the family on an outing. Either way you win!
This thermostat is designed for quick installation and easy use. Packed with convenient features, it gives you the ability to remotely manage your home’s temperature and save money by reducing energy consumption.
The thermostat uses Z-Wave technology, which limits energy costs by controlling your thermostat, as well as many other devices throughout your home. You can create customized, automated heating or cooling schedule based on your family’s weekly routine and environmental factors.
You know that turning down your heat at night saves you money, but you hate waking up and making breakfast in a freezing cold kitchen. You also don’t want to run your heater all day while you’re at work, but you want your home to be warm and cozy when you get home.
Home automation addresses these time-based needs. When noon sunlight warms up your home, Z-Wave will tell the thermostat to adjust itself to a more economical setting. Your home automation system can monitor your entire home’s energy usage in just this way, 24/7, maximizing savings and making your home greener.
This thermostat allows you optimum comfort with the ability to program each day differently and customize temperatures for four periods per day. Featuring exclusive Honeywell Smart Response Technology and Auto Changes from heating to cooling, continually adjusts the pre-heating or cooling of your home within 1°F of your desired temperature.
All of your settings are maintained during power outages with the ability to auto adjust for Daylight Savings Time and a reminder when filters need to be changed.
