What is Nexia?

The winter season is upon us and our furnaces are running often so that our home and family can be warm and cozy. When you leave for work in the morning, you most likely turn your thermostat down, so that your heat does not run all day increasing your home’s energy bill while no one is home.  While this is energy-efficient, it means coming home to a cold, uncomfortable house after a long day of work. With Nexia, you can turn up your thermostat an hour before you leave work, so that you can return to a warm home every evening without racking up your energy bill.

The simple-to-use internet-enabled complete home automation system allows you to remotely manage your home’s security, lights and climate control via computer, tablet or smart phone all through the Nexia app. Trane, together with Nexia Home Intelligence and Schlage, allows you to remain in complete control of your home even while you are away. It allows you to live an active life without worrying about the security of your home. It is almost like being in two places at once.

For example, if your family is going on a vacation, you can use Nexia to give the impression that someone is home by setting your system to close the blinds at dusk, turn on the lights, and turn them off around bedtime. Then, you can set your system to automatically reopen your blinds in the morning. Thanks to your home automation security system through Nexia, you can truly relax on your vacation knowing your home is protected from potential intruders.

With Nexia Home Intelligence, you have the ability to:

•    Control temperature setting and manage your home’s energy use
•    Allow entry to your home through the Schlage Home Keypad even when you are not there
•    Assign up to 19 private four-digit codes for family members
•    Receive instant texts and email alerts when entry codes are used
•    Set recurring codes for housekeepers or frequent guests
•    Add, delete or change user codes remotely
•    Confirm the status of your wireless lock from anywhere
•    Program lights to turn on/off at different times of the day
•    Schedule your lights to turn on when lock code is entered

Because of Nexia’s simple installation process, the management and control of your home is limitless. Your home’s surveillance, windows and doors, lock system, irrigation, lighting and garage doors can all be managed through Nexia. Nexia Home Intelligence is compatible with our Trane Comfortlink or Comfortlink II system, and together, allow you to reduce your home’s energy consumption up to 15 percent compared to traditional non-programmable thermostats.
