What Mobile Apps are Available for my HVAC System?

Living in the Midwest can be a drag, sometimes. Fortunately, we’ve had some mild winters through the past couple years. However, there are still many people who leave town at the first sign of a frost, and don’t come back until the water is warm enough to swim in. What do these people do, in regards to their heating, cooling, and plumbing systems when they leave?

Often times, the “security” involves a family member, or friend coming over once or twice a week to check on things. They make sure that the pipes haven’t frozen, or that the water isn’t leaking anywhere that it shouldn’t be. It’s an age-old tradition for the “snowbirds” to have their house sitter in place when they leave town for the winter.

Now, there is another solution available to these travelers!

mobileIf you do a simple search in your smart phone, you will find several options for mobile solutions, regarding your HVAC and plumbing systems. One in particular is the Honeywell RedLink Internet Gateway. This device, when connected to a specific thermostat will allow you to control your thermostat from anywhere in the world, via your smart phone, or an internet connection on a computer. The possibilities for applications with this product (and others like it) are expanding every week, and ultimately will lead to total home control via your mobile device.

Some examples of what you can do with the product:

  • Control heating/cooling settings, including programmable features of the thermostat
  • Control specific zones within a home
  • Receive alerts if the temperature in your home goes outside of a predetermined (by you) threshold
  • Receive alerts if there is a water leak in, or around, a specific area that has a wet switch device installed

There are  more developments released all the time, and there are a lot of exciting changes coming in regards to this topic. Please give Thermal Services a call at 402.397.8100 to ask any questions that you might have about the application of mobile solutions in your home.
