We all know that we are currently smack dab in the middle of the era of technology. As society becomes more and more advanced, so do our homes. You can now buy a vacuum that cleans your floors with a touch of a button. You can use your smartphone to ensure your home is secure, even locking and unlocking doors whenever needed. While your home gets smarter and smarter, what does that mean for your Trane heating and cooling system?
Fortunately, HVAC is not behind the times. While smart home automation is an investment, it is one that may be worth making. Imagine: you’re six hours into your TV show binge on a rainy Sunday and you get a little cold. Instead of removing yourself from your blanket cocoon on your couch, what if you could simply adjust your home’s temperature from your smartphone? You wouldn’t even have to pause that re-run of The Office.
Why Home Automation
Realistically, smart home automation has plenty of benefits that aren’t related to your favorite streaming service. One of the biggest advantages of home automation is the ability to control your home’s lights, temperature, locks and more, while you’re not there. With summer arriving in just a couple of weeks, vacations are right around the corner. Home automation allows you peace of mind and saves you money, so you can do what you’re supposed to do on vacation—relax.
Benefits of Home Automation
Before heading to the beach this summer, be sure your home has the latest automation technology and lucky for you, Nexia pairs perfectly with Trane XL824/XL850. You can automate your lights to make it look like you’re at home, reducing your risk of burglary, vandalism and more, especially if you’ll be gone for a while. If you don’t have pets, you can also use your home automation system to turn your AC off while you’re at work or on vacation. This can save you hundreds in electric charges. Plus, with most home automation systems, you can sync the controls to your smartphone to have peace of mind at all times while on the go.
What you Need
There are many reputable home automation systems on the market, including Nexia. Typically, systems like Nexia use Z-Wave technology, allowing them to integrate with the most widely-used brands in the electric, security and HVAC industries like Trane. This means you can still use the brand you know and love, all while controlling them from one singular hub on your phone.
Nexia only requires a few items before getting set up: A valid email address, WiFi or Ethernet connection, your network name and password, and a computer connected to the internet. That’s It! After you have all of that, our Trane Comfort specialists will now begin the process of connecting your XL824/XL850 to your home.
Don’t take a vacation without installing the latest technology in home automation. At Air Tech of Humble, our Trane Comfort specialists can help you integrate your Trane HVAC unit with your automation system, allowing you peace of mind this summer.
