Carriots headquarters are located in Madrid and the weather is normally great here! The first cold arrived to our lives without last week without notice. A good opportunity to talk about the efficiency of heating systems and how IoT devices can help us.
Recently, at SouthSummit, we met Momit, a spanish startup that has developed a Smart Thermostat. All the features you can imagine in this product are included: temperature control (cold and heat) through a mobile app, presence detection, contrast weather predictions, learn your routines and with geolocalization detecting if you are near your home.
If you are not sure if this device can save your money, they offer a calculator in their website to decide comparing the surface of your home, your heating system and your budget.
We are sure you certainly know Nest, the company turned very famous when Google bought it a few years ago. Nest has a Learning Thermostat: turns off when you leave your house, see your daily energy consumed and tell you how to reduce it. It does so by detecting your daily routines and at the end, it programs itself!
Nest has another interesting product: a Smoke + CO2 detector ( our CEO bought one, we will ask him to tell us his opinion sometime). If you are looking for more examples, we recommended an article where Chris Barracloug talks about Nest and other smart thermostats: Hive (British Gas) Tadoº , Netamo, Honeywell Evohome and Ecobee3.
We end talking about Ecovent, that is another type of system for heating systems based on hot air. It works installing one smart sensor in every room you want to check and changing your ventilation grill. You can control the temperature of each room independently through the mobile app. Ecovent explains how it works in this funny company video (must see):
Are you planning to transform your heating into a Smart System this winter? It is a good investment in IoT that can save you a lot of money!
