Wireless connections are leading to a lot of innovative developments in many areas. The HVAC industry is no exception as remote access controls are providing customers with new tools for managing home comfort levels and energy use. A home thermostat phone app is ideal for on-the-go management needs. However, for the app to work, you need the right controls.
Carrier’s Remote Access Controls
One of the most exciting remote access options in the industry is the Carrier Infinity line thermostat. iPhone and Android access is possible. You can also connect with your thermostat through a PC app. This enables you to check in from just about anywhere. Whether you want to raise your winter heating setting without getting out of bed on a cold morning or whether you want to adjust settings prior to your arriving home from work on a hot afternoon, you can make the changes remotely.
Coordinating System Components
It is important to take note of the fact that Carrier’s remote access controls are designed to work with specific heating and cooling systems. The wireless thermostat is designed as part of the Carrier Infinity line of products, and it coordinates with heat pumps, air conditioners and furnaces from the Infinity collection. If you don’t have an Infinity system, you may not be able to make complete use of the Infinity control.
