- ABOUT US
Since the early days of human history, we have been trying our best to find ways to be comfortable, regardless of the weather. When it was too cold, someone might venture to build a fire, or take shelter in a cave. If it was too warm, it might have been a bit more challenging to cool off, except for maybe staying near water, or finding a way to circulate the air while sitting in shaded areas. Although many inventions and methods for climate control came and went, things took a big leap forward in 1906, when Honeywell introduced us all to the first home thermostat. By the 1930’s, the company had upgraded their thermometers with electric clocks, so that programming could be more precise. The earliest thermostats that you might actually recognize, the Dial Thermostat, came around in 1953.
Although much has changed since the earliest days of climate controllable thermostats, the functionality was pretty linear for a long time. At least, until the smart thermostat showed up. Today’s modern thermostats are so advanced, so customizable, and so capable, that controlling the general climate of a home or business is only a fraction of their total functionality. For instance, the Nexia home automation system lets you control the total atmosphere and environment in your home from almost anywhere in the world. When paired with your HVAC thermostat, these types of home automation systems let you control the lights, the temperature, the door and window locks, your appliances, and basically anything else that can be tied into your home’s power grid structure. Talk about more than climate control! A new home automation thermostat system can give you total control of your home or business.
