In recent years, advances in technology have changed the way we perform a wide variety of everyday tasks. An example of this surge in innovation is the Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat, a device that takes advantage of the technology behind wireless Internet service. The Cor thermostat from Carrier demonstrates some of the key features and benefits of this advance in heating and cooling control.
Wi-Fi technology makes it possible to send and receive information wirelessly through an Internet modem or a combination of an Internet modem and router. A Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat relies on the same technology, and connects to the Web through what’s known as an IP (Internet protocol) connection. A bare-bones model of this type of thermostat provides basic control over indoor temperatures. Advanced models augment this basic functionality with a broad range of additional features.
The Carrier Cor Thermostat
The Carrier Cor thermostat is designed for both hands-on use and remote wireless control. You access the hands-on functions through a touch screen with a full color display. This screen is interactive, and supplies prompts that help you access both basic and advanced functions. Examples of the thermostat’s main advanced features include an adaptive setting that lets the Cor “decide” temperature settings independently, a scheduling system that lets you program the thermostat up to a week in advance, a function that lets you issue multiple commands with a single button push, and built-in compatibility with certain other temperature control products in Carrier’s line.
Apps for Remote Access
Remote access to the Carrier Cor’s functions is provided through a series of custom apps designed for you Wi-Fi-capable devices, including tablets, smartphones and laptop and desktop computers. Carrier offers apps that work on the two main computer platforms, Apple and Windows, as well as apps that work on the Android and iOS mobile platforms.
Easy Home Integration
The need to combine newly developed technology with your existing furnace, air conditioner or HVAC system can pose quite a technical challenge. When designing the Cor thermostat, Carrier placed an emphasis on making the device compatible with a wide range of heating and cooling systems. This broad-based compatibility ensures an easy integration process in most cases.
The Cor thermostat uses its Internet connection to automatically download and install all of the latest software updates supplied by Carrier. This worry-free update system keeps the device’s features current and simplifies the process of correcting any potential bugs.
