In a smart home, wireless devices run on a wireless network that’s separate from
any other in the home – namely, your WIFI signal. In the instance of Z-Wave,
you’ll be equipped with a powerful, extremely lightweight network has the ability
to connect to a range of devices, from locks and motion sensors to dimmers,
fans, and, of course, a Trane thermostat.
Once you’ve installed a Z-Wave network in the home, you’ll connect a controller
or “hub,” which will function as the heart of your smart home. Renowned for ease
of use and straightforward installation, the Z-Wave network and controller
shouldn’t be a daunting task, but if the installation of technology concerns you, ZWave
has a number of certified technicians willing to answer your questions.
And, your local wireless provider can certainly also assist in Z-Wave installation.
Once you’ve enabled the wireless technology via the hub, you can add devices
one by one, including your Trane thermostat. Trane thermostats are easy to set
up and program, so your enhanced heating system will be up and running in no
time, working immediately to “learn” your family’s behavior to make predictions
and give advice. Eventually, your Trane thermostat will know when you’re home
and when you’re out, acting accordingly to lower or raise the temperature to
maximize comfort and energy savings. And if you’re delayed at work, or you’ve
got unexpected guests arriving, you can inform your Trane thermostat via the
controller – all by a few simple clicks to your smart phone or tablet. An easy-toinstall
app makes communicating with your Trane thermostat a breeze.
If you look at the big picture, you’ll see that the difference between a manual
thermostat and a “smart” Trane thermostat is significant. Over time, manual
thermostats bleed money and energy, since they require the user to manually
adjust. Regulation can’t happen when the homeowner is out of town – or even
away at work. With increasingly irregular weather patterns nationwide, the
difference between adjusting your thermostat remotely or not could mean frozen
pipes during a sudden cold snap, or an overheated house if the weather
unexpectedly warms. In the high desert, smart thermometers automatically
regulate for chilly nights and sweltering days, so the user never even has to think
about it. The point is, whatever your geographic locale, a Trane thermostat is
bound to streamline your life, save you money, and enhance the comfort of your
business or home.
With a Trane smart thermostat, you never need to run home from work to turn
down the heat or open the windows. With Trane’s sleek, easy to read interfaces,
you’ll find that your new thermostat is simple to program, update, and reset.
Trane thermostats easily sync with your preferred smart device and come paired
with companion apps for optimal functioning.
