ROCK HILL, S.C. – (March 9, 2017) Comporium is excited to announce that the ReadyHome security and home-automation system now works with the Nest Learning Thermostat. Starting today, customers can control their Nest Thermostat using the ReadyHome mobile app. This combination allows ReadyHome and ReadyHome Lite customers the ability to enjoy their Comporium automation services and Nest intelligence in one app.
The addition of the Nest Thermostat will help the thousands of ReadyHome customers, who already trust Comporium to protect their homes with cameras and door locks, save more on their monthly energy bills. The Nest Thermostat’s reputation as a trusted and effective product that is easy to use and has been proven to help save energy was a key point in Comporium’s decision to build a Works with Nest integration for the ReadyHome product offering. The Nest Thermostat is currently the only smart thermostat in the United States to be ENERGY STAR® certified by the Environmental Protection Agency.
“The Nest Thermostat helps our customers be more energy efficient and that aligns with our overall home automation initiative – efficiency on the go”, stated Matthew Dosch, executive vice president and COO for Comporium. “By working with the Nest Thermostat, we can give ReadyHome users a higher-level ability to control their home environment from anywhere!”
Using its sensors and algorithms, the Nest Thermostat learns customers’ schedules, automatically adapting to their lives and helping them save energy. Since 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved over 10 billion kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide. Independent studies have shown that it has saved people an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.
Comporium will offer the option to purchase a Nest Thermostat to new customers signing up for a ReadyHome service bundle. Customers who already have ReadyHome service can choose to add a Nest Thermostat to their existing system for $99 with a one-year contract extension. Customers can also provide their own Nest Thermostat. Anyone interested in seeing the Nest Thermostat or the the ReadyHome lineup in action can visit either the Stonecrest store in Tega Cay or the Fountain Park Place store in Rock Hill. Both locations feature immersive product demonstration areas where consumers can experience the product before choosing to purchase it.
