Smart HVAC Controls and Thermostats
Consumers have numerous options for automating their household, but one of the easiest ways to turn your house into a smart home is by installing a thermostat equipped with an automation bridge. Connected HVAC controls and thermostats like the Trane ComfortLink let you manage more than 200 smart devices throughout your house. Use the touchscreen thermostat as your command center or control your devices from your phone or through a voice-activated assistant like Alexa. The beauty of this solution is that the thermostat can do two jobs in one, so there’s no need for a standalone hub or a separate Wi-Fi thermostat.
