Download the free app on iOS or Android and use it to adjust the thermostat from your phone or other mobile device. You can even do that from miles away like if you head to work and forgot to adjust it before you left. Of course, you can solve that problem with scheduling. The T9 can handle seven-day scheduling that will adjust the thermostat automatically at different times of the day.

Geofencing technology syncs the thermostat with your smartphone. It can know when you're away from home and when you're coming back. The temperature will then adjust accordingly so you come home to a comfortable environment and it saves energy while you're away.

The smart room sensor helps you monitor a very specific room or section of your home. If you absolutely want your living room or nursery to be the perfect temperature and it's going to be different than the rest of the house, then use this sensor there. It can last for up to one year on its included battery and has a sensor range up to 200 feet.

Connect the system to your existing Wi-Fi network. It will work with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa for voice control.
