Monnit's smart thermostat is different than typical thermostats found today, as it is designed specifically for remote configuration. There are no manual adjustment buttons which prevents the cooling or heating system from being tampered with or left in an energy wasting state. It also features an integrated motion sensor to auto detect if the area is occupied or not. The system allows you to set a max and min temperature range for both occupied and non-occupied statess. This is a perfect solution for remote buildings that are typically unoccupied, as the system will auto adjust comfort levels when personnel arrive and automatically return to normal when they leave. It is also great for corporate buildings, schools and churches to prevent random adjustments by unauthorized people and auto detect occupants to adjust comfort levels. It also provides cost savings by allowing the cooling or heating system go into a power saving mode if an area is not in use.
