The Temperature Sensor Integrates with the Alarm.com Smart Thermostat (required, purchased separately) for advanced functionality. Room-specific temperature Control Control the temperature of any room by pairing the Temperature Sensor with the Smart Thermostat. The Smart Thermostat regulates the temperature by using the data from the Temperature Sensor in that particular room, overriding its own temperature reading. For example, if your Smart Thermostat is in an undesired location of your home (such as a hallway), place a Temperature Sensor in a common area such as the living room and have your Smart Thermostat use the Temperature Sensor readings instead. Averaged temperature readings Create a more balanced temperature throughout the home and reduce temperature variations from room to room by creating a temperature set point using the average of the temperature readings from your Temperature Sensors and Smart Thermostat. For example, if there are multiple bedrooms, set the Smart Thermostat to bring the average temperature across all bedrooms to the desired setpoint. Schedules The Temperature Sensor can be used with the Smart Thermostat schedule to provide comfort in different locations of the home during certain times of the day. For example, during the evening, the Smart Thermostat can make sure the downstairs living room is comfortable, and then automatically bring the comfort to the bedroom at night Alerts Stay informed of potentially dangerous temperatures by receiving a text or email to notify you if the temperature in one location is unusually high or low. For example, place a Temperature Sensor in the basement or attic, near water pipes.
- An Alarm.com Smart Thermostat (ADC-T3000 or ADC-T2000) and compatible Z-wave controller are required for the use of the Alarm.com Temperature Sensor.
