When it comes to heating and cooling technology, today’s consumers have a wide variety of available options. One of the newer developments on the market is the Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat, which you can operate remotely with a smartphone or tablet, as well as a laptop or desktop computer. One of the best examples of this type of thermostat, the Carrier Cor, has several features that make it much easier to control your household temperatures.
What’s a Wi-Fi-Enabled Thermostat?
A Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat is a temperature control device that can receive signals sent through the same modem used to carry your Internet traffic. This means that, in addition to operating the thermostat directly from its main panel, you can control it with a range of other Wi-Fi-enabled devices capable of sending commands through the modem. All thermostats in this category give you remote control over basic temperature-related functions. Some models also have a number of convenience-enhancing advanced functions.
Carrier Cor Features
The Carrier Cor has both basic and advanced functions that you can access directly or remotely. Direct access is provided by a color touch screen, which uses situational prompts to show you the easiest way to achieve your desired temperature control task. In addition to simply raising and lowering your household temperature, you can do such things as lay out a schedule of temperature settings for the coming week, set up a single command that lets you control multiple functions at once, and give the thermostat the freedom to change its settings automatically in response to temperature fluctuations that occur throughout the day.
Apps for Your Preferred Device
Most people have specific preferences for their Wi-Fi-enabled tech, including their favorite type of computer (desktop or laptop), favorite computer operating system (typically Apple or Windows) and favorite smartphone or tablet operating system (typically Android or iOS). Carrier seeks to accommodate these preference by creating device-specific control apps for the Cor thermostat. In most cases, you can download an app that lets you control the thermostat through a familiar platform and interface style.
Easy System Integration
Unless you’re planning to replace your entire heating/cooling system, any Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat you buy must integrate well with your existing furnace, air conditioner or HVAC setup. The Carrier Cor is especially adaptable to a wide range of existing temperature control systems. This means that there’s a very high chance that the thermostat will work smoothly with the hardware you already have in place.
One of the potential benefits of a device that can access the Internet is a greatly simplified software update process. The Carrier Cor fulfills this potential with an automatic update system that keeps your software current at all times.
Installed By an HVAC Specialist
An HVAC specialist must install your Carrier Cor thermostat. This professional installation process guarantees the function of the device right out of the box. It also gives you the opportunity to ask a specialist about the thermostat’s capabilities.
