Years ago we could say that the smaller a business was, the easier it was to manage. From heating to cooling savings, we could easily control it manually. The good news is: with TELUS automation and security, the largest businesses are also easy to control.
You can find many ways for a business to save on energy costs and secure a lower electric bill. Some of the most popular ways are ensuring proper insulation, adding weather stripping, turning off the lights when not in use, and adjusting the temperature at the end of the work day.
The easiest way to regulate your temperature is with a thermostat. Smart thermostats understand activity data and use it to prevent energy waste, keep your customers and team comfortable, store supplies and inventory at the right temperature and send you alerts to flag issues.
TELUS Custom Security Systems has prepared some other useful tips to help you smartly save energy and reduce your bills.
1- Save with “Away” mode.
You can save energy by changing your thermostats to “Away” mode. It turns your heating and cooling down when you don’t need them. Based on your business activities, you can schedule this mode with automatic adjustments.This will deliver substantial energy savings to your business and peace-of-mind to you.

TELUS Custom Security Systems can install remote temperature sensors alongside your smart thermostats. This will allow your thermostats to read the temperature in areas like storerooms or display cases. Alerts are sent to your phone in case the temperature needs to be adjusted.
3 – Restrictions in a click.

This will prevent your employees from setting temperatures too low or too high. They will be limited to the range that you determine.
4- Alerts when you need them most.
