What is a smart thermostat?

A smart thermostat will ‘learn’ your lifestyle habits by detecting when you are at home and when you are away. Like a smart meter, it can monitor your household’s energy usage, and it can control it by creating a personalised heating schedule to suit your needs.


Depending on the compatability of your boiler, many smart thermostats are also capable of controlling your hot water.


How does a smart thermostat work? 

A smart thermostat will monitor your personal heating habits and automatically adjust the temperature for you.


It will switch your heating on to your preferred temperature when you are at home.


Many models are capable of connecting to the internet for the latest weather reports and can follow your location by GPS, enabling them to turn the heating on automatically when you're on your way home.

There are numerous benefits to be gained from owning a smart thermostat such as:


  • Potentially save money – A smart thermostat could reduce your household’s energy bill.
