A learning thermostat remembers your temperature adjustments and programs to create a custom schedule. The thermostat is compatible with most 24V heating and cooling systems including forced air, radiant and heat pump systems, and is compatible with oil, gas and electric fuel types. Optional manual programming lets you establish a 7-day schedule with more than 20 set points per day. An “auto-away mode” lowers the temperature when you're out of the house for reduced energy consumption.
A learning thermostat can let you know when you're saving energy and calculate how much energy you've saved during the week. It also has a color LCD display showing the amount of time it will take to achieve a desired temperature.
Wireless connectivity makes it simple to adjust the learning thermostat remotely via your laptop or Wi-Fi-enabled mobile phone and is compatible with 802.11b/g/n, 2.4GHz wireless networks.
