Best Smart Thermostats - SafeWise Buyer’s Guide

A Review of the Top 6 Smart Thermostats of 2017

Smart thermostats are the home automation-lover’s right-hand robot. In addition to providing upwards of 30 percent energy savings, smart thermostats deliver optimal convenience. For instance, if you’re cozy in bed and want your house to be just as toasty when you get up, program your thermostat to fire up the furnace before you wake. Better yet, purchase a learning thermostat that observes your preferences, habits, and household nuances and does the programming for you—so you don’t have to think about it!

Like most products, some outdo others, so use our top six list below to get started on your search for simpler yet more sophisticated living.
