During these times and when demand approaches capacity, we may adjust your usage to help keep energy costs low and the grid stable.
During an event, your thermostat will be remotely adjusted a few degrees in order to protect the power grid. You will receive an alert on your app and on the thermostat’s display. If you’d prefer not to participate in an event, you can skip it at any time.
Your thermostat will only be adjusted when there is unusual strain on the electric grid, and such events are generally infrequent. When they do happen, most events are minutes to only a few hours long, but no more than four hours.
You will see a message displayed on your thermostat display as well as in your thermostat’s app.
Yes – just change your thermostat setting to

You get a financial reward for helping to

As part of your enrollment, you will be asked to authorize Resideo’s agent to obtain energy usage data on a secure and confidential basis, and only for the purpose of your enrollment and participation. If you have questions about how the program accesses your data, please send an email to email@example.com.
A serious grid emergency can lead to a blackout that leaves your home with no power. It's not just the loss of lights, air conditioning and other things you depend on. A blackout can also have a heavy toll on your community's infrastructure and local businesses. If we all work together, we can help prevent this from happening. The program helps us use the grid infrastructure more efficiently.
By participating in the program, you are helping expand the available energy resources in your community to maintain grid stability and prevent blackouts
