If you want to create an energy-efficient home in a cost-effective way, a smart thermostat is one of the fastest, easiest, and most affordable ways to do so. A smart thermostat "learns" from your activity and preferences, to ensure that your home is always comfortable while still using the least amount of energy possible.
Conserving Energy Within Your Home
A smart thermostat is able to adjust the temperature of your property in the most energy-efficient way. As an example, it can calculate whether holding the temperature at a specific degree is better or if turning off the system entirely at certain times is better -- things that it's very difficult to ascertain manually. Smart thermostats can also be directly interfaced with to print out reports that will tell you how much energy you're using and why; these reports will often offer suggestions for better energy-efficiency.
Learning Your Schedule and Behaviors
Smart thermostats are able to learn when you need your home heated and cooled rather than simply heating and cooling your home as you demand it. This offers superior comfort, as your home is always the temperature that you desire it without having to make constant adjustments. Some smart thermostats directly detect when you're home or not, or allow you to adjust settings while you’re away, so that they can make sure that your property is comfortable whenever it is occupied.

Improving Upon Existing HVAC Systems
It isn't always practical to replace your home's entire heating and cooling system, even if heating and cooling systems utilize the most energy within a home. Luckily, smart thermostats are improvements that can be added on to existing HVAC systems, so you don't need to upgrade your entire system -- you can just add on a module that will improve the efficiency of the entire property. As a consequence, smart thermostats are also very fast and easy to install, so there won't be any disruption to your living space.
Controlling Your System Remotely
As with many smart devices, thermostats can be controlled through smartphones and Internet-capable devices, thereby adding functionality for those who want to maintain complete automated control of their home. You can check on the temperature of your home remotely and turn on or off the heating and cooling as desired. If you forgot to turn the air conditioner off before you left your home, for instance, you can check it and turn it off at your desk at work.
