Smart Thermostats, like the variety of them available from Mysa, keep your home at the right temperature and save you money. You might think that a smart thermostat takes control of your home, but the opposite is true. They actually give you new abilities to make your home more comfortable and more energy efficient. Explore some of the advantages of a smart thermostat, then enter for a chance to win a new Mysa Smart Thermostat for AC and mini splits.

What makes a Mysa Thermostat smart

The main reason why most smart home technology is deemed “smart” is the integration of it’s main functionality with a mobile app. This allows the device to connect with the user in a variety of ways. For example, you can use the Mysa app to control the Mysa Thermostat to make your home warmer or cooler. And you can do so from anywhere in the world! For example, if you are on vacation when the temperature changes drastically near your home, such that you think your pets might be uncomfortable, you would use the app to adjust the temperature in your home as needed.

Part of the “smart” functionality is the ability for the device to easily work with other technologies. Mysa makes a range of Thermostats for unique technology challenges. The prize we are giving away in this contest can control air conditions and mini-splits. If you have baseboard heating, there is a Mysa smart thermostat designed to work specifically with that technology.

Are smart thermostats great for every home

I get asked this question about many types of smart home technology, and I’ve seen many of these come and go over the last decade. I sent the Mysa Smart thermostat for AC and Mini splits to two reviewers (Shelly for an English review and Stéphane for a French review). Both reviewers were impressed. Shelly stated that she already has a Mysa thermostat for the baseboard heaters in her home and loves the convenience and the extra control over her home heating needs and home heating expenses. She loved how easily this new device connected with her Insignia air conditioner so she could make sure her home stayed cool during hot summer days if she was away from the home. Stéphane too like the simple set up and he commented on the beautiful design of the product too.

Obviously, the Mysa thermostat we are giving away in this contest would not work in your home if you did not have an AC or Minisplit to control. So that is the first answer to the question above. But there are smart thermostats for pretty much every type of home heating and cooling set up. I think my home is one of the rare types that could not benefit from a smart thermostat since we only have a wood stove for heating and windows to open for cooling down! My home has lots of smart tech, just not for temperature control. I would love if Mysa figured out a smart thermostat for my situation!
