Smart thermostat (utility patent)

[Category : - OTHER- HUMAN NECESSITIES- Appliances and houseware]
[Viewed 245 times]

Abstract
A smart temperature control system includes a thermostat positioned within an interior of a building and having a communication module; a temperature sensor for measuring an interior temperature of the building; and a processor to manipulate one or more settings of the thermostat, the processor having an artificial intelligence module to process data to provide a command to be implemented via the processor and thermostat to adjust the interior temperature based on the command; an exterior temperature sensor to determine an exterior temperature; the exterior temperature is communicated to the processor to create the command; and the command based on the exterior temperature causes the thermostat to switch between a heat setting and a cool setting to maintain a predetermined set temperature.


Claims (5)
Hide Dependent
What is claimed is:
1. A smart temperature control system, comprising:
a thermostat positioned within an interior of a building, the thermostat having:
a first communication module configured to provide wireless communication;
a temperature sensor for measuring an interior temperature of the building; and
a processor configured to manipulate one or more settings of the thermostat, the processor having an artificial intelligence module configured to process data to provide a command to be implemented via the processor and thermostat to adjust the interior temperature based on the command;
an exterior temperature sensor positioned at an exterior of the building and configured to determine an exterior temperature, the exterior temperature sensor having:
a second communication module configured to provide wireless communication;
wherein the exterior temperature is communicated to the processor to create the command; and
wherein the command based on the exterior temperature casues the thermostat to switch between a heat setting and a cool setting to maintain a predetermined set temperature.
2. The system of claim 1, further comprising:
a mobile computing device configured to communicate with the thermostat and the exterior temperature sensor, the mobile computing device having an interface to receive user commands to be transmitted to the thermostat.
3. The system of claim 1, wherein the thermostat further comprises:
a touch screen for user manipulation.
4. A method of temperature control, the method comprising:
installing a thermostat within an interior of a building, the thermostat having a first communication module and a processor configured to manipulate one or more settings of the thermostat based on artificial intelligence technology;
installing an exterior temperature sensor on an exterior of the building, the exterior temperature sensor having a second communication module to communicate with the thermostat;
receiving a predetermined set temperature from a user;
receiving an exterior temperature by the thermostat from the exterior temperature sensor; and
switching, via the processor, between a heat and a cool setting associated with the thermostat based on the exterior temperature to maintain the predetermined set temperature.
5. The method of claim 4, further comprising:
receiving a command from a user via a mobile computing device configured to communicate with the thermostat.
