Thermostats have evolved a great deal over the years. While the first smart thermostat was brought to the market back in 2007, smart thermostats couldn’t learn your schedule until 2011. Under the industry’s modern standards, smart thermostats can do something smart such as learning your schedule, anticipating temperatures in different zones, using sensors to tell when occupants are in the house and adjusting temperatures accordingly, or even geofencing which sets a virtual perimeter around your home and adjusts temperatures based on when you come and go from your home. While all smart thermostats are technically wifi thermostats, not all wifi thermostats are smart. Wifi thermostats give you the ability to adjust your temperature control settings via your wifi connected devices such as a phone or tablet. This is a very convenient feature as it permits you to adjust the temperature control settings at home, no matter where you are located.
