A Smart Thermostat is best for families that leave the home completely for extended periods of time during the day and/or set the temperature back at night. Some smart thermostats have infrared sensors which detect large pets even when you're away which can prevent energy savings. Other smart thermostats use geofencing, which is based on your smartphone's location. This technology is not well-suited to people who come by their house often during the day but not necessarily home (i.e., delivery drivers, cable tv installers).
