This WiFi enabled thermostat has a large touchscreen for easy configuration. At a glance the backlit color panel will indicate whether the system is heating or cooling with a low lighting mode for nighttime operation. A “geofencing” feature will intelligently heat or cool your home based on your smartphone’s location.
HOW IT WORKS
Installation is described as “easy” on the manufacturer’s website with “no experience required” to install and setup. Once installed, a free smartphone app can control the temperature remotely and also notify when extreme or humidity changes are detected. If there are any installation issues the Sensi technical support team is available seven days a week.
REAL WORLD USE CASES
Some ways the Sensi Smart Thermostat could be configured for the safety of an elderly person living alone:
- Extreme swings in temperature can alert a family member that something may be wrong with the heating or cooling system in a senior’s home.
- If a window is left open in the winter or the thermostat accidently set to 101 degrees, anyone can be notified to intervene before it becomes a safety issue.
The Sensi Smart Thermostat also integrates with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Home for voice activated thermostat changes.
