Meet Our New, Smarter Thermostat

Jan 07 2018
At CES 2018, we unveiled a new, smarter thermostat solution, uniquely able to help protect your home from costly emergencies including HVAC failures, floods and water damage.

We've applied our smart home security technology—with machine learning, proactive safeguards and whole-home intelligence—to create a new type of smart thermostat solution. It detects and responds to common home maintenance problems before they cascade into big-ticket home repairs or system failures—and that's in addition to some very advanced energy-saving and precision comfort capabilities.

With home security at its core, our new smart thermostat—available in spring 2018—extends your peace of mind by:  

Protecting your HVAC system

A faulty HVAC system or furnace is the most common emergency home repair, typically happening when you need it most and when technicians are at their busiest.  

Alarm.com's machine learning technology proactively monitors your HVAC system, alerting you early to trouble conditions so you can avoid cascading equipment failures, a freezing home, or costly off-hour emergency repairs.  

Protecting your home's environment

Our smart thermostat understands humidity levels in your home, and can help you combat the formation of mold. Mold can form in a range of climates, can cause health issues, and typically costs several thousand dollars to clean up.  

Alarm.com intelligently balances humidity and temperature set points to help keep your home environment that comfortable for your family but inhospitable for mold.  

Protecting your wallet

With whole-home intelligence from the security system, our thermostat understands what's going on, and can spot more opportunities to save energy.  

It can set back to save energy based on your system's arming status, your geo-location, and even when it detects an open window or door—no more paying to heat the neighborhood!  

Protecting your family's comfort  

Our thermostat's remote temperature sensors make it easy to optimize your home's temperature to any room at a specific time.  

You can install a sensor in your master bedroom for perfect comfort at night, or in your baby's nursery for naptime. Assign control to the sensor, and Alarm.com will optimize your home's temperature to target that specific room.  

Our new, smarter thermostat will be available in spring 2018. Stay warm until then!
