The Nexia-enabled smart thermostat is one of the best on the market, using the most widely adopted, next generation Z-Wave home/office automation platform – that allows you to monitor and control your heating, cooling, ventilation, air purifier, dehumidifier, humidifier and heat pump with your iOS, Android, Windows smart phones app, PC, Mac and tablet while at the office, on vacation or anywhere with WIFI.
24/7 Diagnostics Text Alerts
It works like this. Both you and your heating and cooling company receive a text and/or email notice when something is amiss. Alerts can catch small problems before they worsen; potentially saving your dollars in repairs that went undetected for too long. The notice specifies what may be wrong. Then, an appointment can be set, and Snell Heating and AC can arrive at your doorstep, prepared with the correct part. That’s a time-saver and peace of mind!
The smart thermostat’s diagnostic alert system app and alerts – cost zero. A home owner or office manager – would need to agree – to opt-in. “We recommend you do so,” notes Snell.
The thermostat serves as a hub, bridge or brain to remotely monitor and control heating/cooling/ventilation systems, and ability to connect 200+ Nexia-enabled devices like security, lights, cameras and more – from brands galore. Many are DIY, plug and play. Smart thermostats require professional installation by a licensed HVAC company. Snell Heating and AC is the one to call. 402-332-3531
Most existing furnaces, AC, air purification, ventilation, humidifier, dehumidifier, ventilation and heat pump systems that folks already have in homes or offices work with smart thermostats, with some wiring retrofitting.
To be sure, schedule an appointment with your trusted HVAC company to take a look.

Can I command Amazon’s Alexa, Echo, Tap, and Google Home to control the Nexia- smart thermostat?
In the near future, yes. For now, there are workarounds by using a third party applet called IFTTT.com, with some limitations.
“Nexia is currently developing direct compatibility with these popular smart speakers, aka intelligent voice assistants. The functionality is due to hit the market any day,” noted Linder, the distributor of Snell’s HVAC products.
Huh? What Are Voice Assistants?
Google Home and Amazon Alexa devices like the Echo, Dot and Tap are software-enable smart speakers that enable users to speak voice commands to perform tasks or services. Turn on the lights. Play the latest news. Set alarms and more.
Snell Protects Your Security
Security is a top concern to both you and us. During installation, Snell Heating and AC technicians rely on you alone to enter your WIFI password. “We turn away our heads,” emphasized Snell.
Another plus. Nexia is not a data mining company. Snell said Nexia does not sell to third parties the personal info you enter to set up the smart thermostat app.
