How exactly do smart products work?

In a smart home, devices, controls, monitors, and sensors are controlled at the request of the controller, or “hub.” In the case of a Z-Wave automated home, a special wireless network – but not your WIFI signal – is programmed throughout the home and then set to “communicate” with home security systems, temperature controls, entertainment systems, and much more.

Once a controller, or hub, is set up, smart devices can be added to your system, one by one. This includes the smart thermostat; once the automated home is programmed, your smart thermostat will immediately go to work, gathering information about your needs and your home and making your heating and cooling work smarter, not harder, for you.
