All About Carrier Cor Thermostats

Wi-Fi-Enabled Thermostats

Modern technology gives us the ability to remotely control a number of household devices that were once only accessible through direct physical contact. A prime example of this increasingly important trend is the Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat, which uses wireless Internet technology to provide remote access to your home's heating and cooling hardware. The Carrier Cor thermostat uses its Wi-Fi capability as the basis for a range of features that make home temperature control substantially more convenient.

Wi-Fi-Enabled Thermostats

The Wi-Fi modem in your home sends and receives wireless signals, which you typically use to connect your computer, smartphone or tablet to the Internet. A Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat uses the same principle to receive wireless commands sent through your modem. At a bare minimum, all thermostats in this category let you remotely turn on your furnace, air conditioner or combined HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system. Many units also allow you to control other temperature-related functions, or take advantage of advanced programming options.

The Carrier Cor's Chief Features

In addition to remote access through your Internet modem, the Carrier Cor features a modern direct-control interface built around a color touch screen. When you operate the device through this screen, a prompt system interprets your actions and provides onscreen instructions on how to achieve your objectives. Other main features available through both direct and remote access include basic temperature control, prearranged temperature control that you can set up to a week in advance, the ability to control multiple thermostat functions with one programmed command and the ability to let the thermostat selects its own temperature settings automatically.

Carrier Cor Apps

The remote functions of the Cor thermostat are controllable through any one of several custom apps designed to work with the computers, tablets and smartphones already in use in your household. Carrier makes separate apps for Windows and Apple laptops and desktop computers. The company also makes separate apps for tablets and phones powered by Android operating systems and Apple's iOS operating system.

System Flexibility and Automatic Upgrades

Carrier has designed the Cor thermostat to be backwards-compatible with the vast majority of the furnaces, air conditioners and HVAC systems already found in American homes. This built-in flexibility greatly simplifies the process of installation and system integration. In addition, Carrier has equipped the Cor with an automatic system for downloading and installing all software updates and bug fixes. This means that it takes essentially zero effort to keep the thermostat up-to-date and error-free.

Carrier Cor thermostat installation should only be performed by a professional familiar with both the device and HVAC systems. This familiarity greatly simplifies the process of integrating the thermostat into your existing heating and cooling networks. It also helps ensure that you don't experience any problems during daily thermostat operation.
