Technology has made it possible to create the living environment that we want with the touch of a button. We can watch a step-by-step cooking video from our smartphones, dim our smart lights for dinner party ambiance and voice-activate our favorite digital playlist from any room in the house. These smarthome enhancements improve our lives in ways both big and small, but nowhere is their impact more evident—or prevalent—than the smart thermostat.
Emerson, a leader in the thermostat and HVAC controls industry, recently announced the next evolution of our nationally recognized smart thermostat. The new Sensi™ Touch Wi-Fi® Thermostat combines proven smarthome technology with a color touchscreen display and sleek, minimalist appearance to create an empowering home comfort experience for users.
In addition, our new Sensi Touch Wi-Fi Thermostat—along with an updated version of the classic Sensi™ Wi-Fi® Thermostat—is now compatible with smarthome management platform Apple HomeKit™. Both Sensi thermostats will continue to build upon our long legacy of connecting precise temperature control and convenience to ensure the highest level of home comfort.
Since its launch three years ago, the Sensi thermostat has received top customer reviews. In 2016, the Sensi thermostat ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Smart Thermostats” in the inaugural J.D. Power 2016 Smart Thermostat Satisfaction Report.SM
"As we’ve continued to learn from our customers, homeowners are gravitating toward simple smarthome solutions that make life easier,” said Robert T. Sharp, executive president of Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions. “Our latest Sensi thermostats combine enhanced capabilities and a sleek new interface with a proven home comfort experience that puts users firmly in control of their environment, anytime and from anywhere.”
In addition to the Apple HomeKit integration, both Sensi thermostats are compatible with smart home platforms Amazon Alexa and Wink, providing a seamless experience for smarthome users.
Both Sensi thermostats offer best-in-class installation for either homeowners or contractors, with step-by-step instructions and video tutorials in the Sensi smartphone app. Customers can use the new geofencing proximity detection feature or flexible scheduling options to achieve energy savings without compromising their comfort. Both thermostats use smart alerts to notify customers of extreme temperatures and humidity levels. Through the Sensi mobile app dashboard, multiple thermostat users have an easy overview into their whole-home comfort settings.
