Learn about managing smart thermostats that automatically adjust your heating and cooling systems to keep you comfortable.

What Is a Smart Thermostat?

A smart thermostat is a device designed for home automation that enables you to control your home heating and air conditioning system remotely. An evolution of the traditional thermostat, smart thermostats provide enhanced functions that leverage technology for convenience, efficiency, and energy savings. Smart thermostats often come equipped with features like learning capabilities, energy-saving modes, and integration with other smart home systems.

The Seam API enables you to manage your smart thermostats from a central console so that you can set climate schedules that keep your property comfortable automatically when occupied and switch to energy savings when unoccupied.

Leverage the Seam API for the following smart thermostat-related applications:

  • Adjusting current settings: Modify the current climate and fan modes based on your immediate needs, whether you are on location or away.

  • Scheduling climate settings for the future [in development]: Plan ahead by setting temperature preferences for future dates and times. For example, if you plan to have a guest at a rental home, you can schedule the house to warm up just before their arrival.

  • Default energy savings: Program the thermostat to use a climate setting as a "vacation mode" or "energy savings mode" to minimize energy consumption when your property is unoccupied.
