Wouldn’t it be nice if you could adjust your home’s temperature from anywhere with the touch of a button? That’s one of the biggest benefits of installing a smart thermostat in your Palm Desert, California, home. Follow this simple guide, and you can use your thermostat’s remote control capabilities to simplify your life, save money, and improve your comfort.

Download the App

The first step to controlling your HVAC system with your smartphone is to download the right app. If you’ve installed one of the connected controls available from Trane, such as the ComfortLink II XL1050 or XL950, all you need is the Nexia app. The app can be downloaded to your iOS, Android, or Windows device and use it to control not only your Wi-Fi-enabled Trane thermostat but also any other Nexia-compatible smart home products.

Explore the Features

After downloading the app and syncing it with your Trane thermostat, take a moment to explore the available features. The Nexia app can show you diagnostic information about your HVAC system and even notify us, your Trane dealer, of any issues that pop up. You can use the app to set a heating and cooling schedule. Many of our smart thermostats even offer zoned controls and allow you to remotely control other Trane products, such as our whole-home air purifiers, dehumidifiers, and more.

Make Changes On the Go

Once you’re familiar with the features of your thermostat and the Nexia app, you can start making changes on the go for maximum efficiency. If you have to stay late at work, you can adjust the day’s schedule so that your system doesn’t kick on until closer to your arrival time. If you forgot to switch your system to vacation mode before leaving, you can make that change on the road. You can even override any changes your kids make to the settings when you’re not home.
