For most people, the smart thermostat is the entry point for home automation. It’s easier than ever to connect your home’s heating and cooling systems to the Internet, allowing homeowners to control their HVAC from nearly anywhere on the planet. But an often-overlooked feature of smart thermostats is their ability to control and optimize themselves, a technology that can lead to valuable energy savings. In your work, are you enabling these features for your clients—or shutting them all off to make the thermostat act like traditional “dumb” controls?
Electric Vehicles 101

This presentation dives into the basics of the shift to electric EVs, covering the technology itself, the models available in the US, and a look at how real people use and charge their EVs, followed by an attendee Q&A. Who should view this webinar? Anyone interested in EV (homeowners, dealers, companies wanting to convert their fleet, etc.).
