Integrating communication between thermostats into a Smart Home automation solution provides convenience, but more importantly, substantial energy cost savings.
The system will monitor and reset temperatures automatically, processing data for:

Today's heating and cooling systems
Larger custom homes utilizing numerous heating and cooling zones are great for Smart Home automation control systems.
Today's heating and cooling systems have vastly improved, offering better efficiency and more precise temperature control. Integrating communication between thermostats into a Smart Home automation solution provides convenience, but more importantly, substantial energy cost savings.
Rooms generally unoccupied or infrequently used can be zoned and set to a lower than normal temperature allowing for increased savings on heating and cooling costs. Popular areas, such as the kitchen, dining room and living room can also be zoned together to regulate steady temperature settings associated with frequent use.
Although advanced Environmental Control is readily available to today's homeowner, not everyone will take advantage of it. One very important element to at least consider in building a new home is to install an adequate cabling infrastructure that will accommodate Environmental Control. One simple Cat5 wire run from the back of each thermostat directly to a Network Distribution Center (NDC) is all that is required, functioning as a potential upgrade to you or a future purchaser.
Smart Home HVAC Automation considers:
- The number of electrical switches
- The number of thermostats
- The capability of integration with other systems
