Want to make your smart thermostat even smarter at home and the office?

A few years back I wrote a BLOG about smart thermostats.

A few years back I wrote a BLOG about smart thermostats.  In this Blog I wanted to touch base on something that you can do to make your house even more comfortable if you have a smart thermostat or are thinking of purchasing one.  A friend of mine told me about these add on sensors that you can purchase for some smart thermostats that allows you to help control the temperatures in other rooms of the house that may be warmer, or cooler based on their location.  Using these sensors, you can let your thermostat know which room or rooms should be at a certain temperature at certain times of the day.  All you have to do is place the sensor in the desired room either by hanging it on the wall or placing it on a shelf or table.  You can have multiple sensors throughout the house and prioritize each sensor using the app.  For example, if you work from home and your home office is too hot or cold during the day you can set the temperature and time for that sensor and the thermostat located elsewhere will use that sensor and make the temperature in that room the temperature that you programmed.  You can then have another sensor in your bedroom and program that sensor for a certain temperature at night and the thermostat will adjust so that the temperature in that room is set at the programmed temperature for comfortable sleeping.  And like I stated in the last BLOG, using a smart thermostat and these sensors can save you approximately 20% on your heating and cooling.  Below are some other benefits of a using smart thermostat.
