As a leader in household technologies, Honeywell continuously releases products that save homeowners time and money. One of the company’s recent introductions, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat, promises to give homeowners greater control over their energy usage and comfort at home.
One of the new product’s signature features, voice control, allows users to voice statements such as “I’m feeling cold” or “Make it much warmer” to adjust the thermostat. Honeywell also developed an application that enables users to control the thermostat remotely from a smart phone or another compatible device. This provides convenience inside the home and potential energy savings outside the home as the user can reduce utility usage when absent. The user-friendly unit includes a color touchscreen and learning capabilities that enable it to adapt to the owner’s life patterns and needs.
