TYSONS, Va., Oct. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (Nasdaq: ALRM), the leading platform for the intelligently connected property, today announced that its award-winning Smart Thermostat has earned ENERGY STAR® certification. Extensive, independent testing, as required by the Environmental Protection Agency for ENERGY STAR® certification, confirmed that the Smart Thermostat can save homeowners between 9 and 16 percent of energy when heating, and between 15 and 23 percent when cooling. With the typical U.S. home costing an average of $900 to heat and cool annually, the Smart Thermostat offers a significant opportunity to save money.

Designed specifically for the smart home and smart business, the Smart Thermostat combines sleek hardware, sophisticated cloud services and real-time intelligence from an ecosystem of connected devices. With more information about its environment than standalone connected devices, and a detailed understanding of users’ activities and needs, the Smart Thermostat automatically finds more opportunities to save energy without impacting comfort.

Responsive Savings is a unique capability that automatically responds to activity, occupancy and weather patterns.

  • Geo-Services uses location-based automation to dynamically adjust the thermostat to keep up with the most unpredictable family schedule.
  • Extreme Temps automatically adjusts the temperature set point on those extremely hot or cold days when a small change can provide big savings without impacting comfort.

The Smart Thermostat is intelligently integrated with other connected devices around the property to enable responsive automation and easy control. Arming or disarming the security system can trigger the thermostat to automatically adjust. With’s Scenes feature, a single tap on the mobile app or voice command can adjust the thermostat along with other connected devices in the property.
