How Does Air Conditioning in St Louis Fit Into Home Automation?

With an increase in smart thermostats, many homes are taking the first step in home automation.  A smart thermostat, such as Google’s Nest Thermostat, syncs with the smartphones of those living in the home to track their heating and cooling habits over time.  A smart thermostat will know when a homeowner enters and leaves the house based on when their smartphone appears on the WiFi network the thermostat is synced to.  For example, if everyone in the family leaves for the day, the smart thermostat will know to turn down your air conditioner to conserve energy.  When family members come home, the smart thermostat will recognize their presence and adjust the heating and cooling settles automatically.  Over time, the smart thermostat learns the patterns of the homeowners and will preemptively adjust your settings.
