Honeywell debuts color-customizable Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat
Wednesday, April 10, 2013 @ 10:44pm

Honeywell today announced the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat, a networked thermostat that allows design-focused homeowners to customize the display to match or accent existing home decor. In addition, the Honeywell thermostat offers Wi-Fi connectivity that allows consumers to regulate energy usage and home comfort through a smartphone app.



Featuring a touchscreen display for local input, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is equipped with mobile and email alerts notifying homeowners when the home is too hot or cold, the humidity level is too high or too low, when the filter needs to be changed, or if the home loses power. Honeywell's Smart Response technology enables the thermostat to learn how long it takes to heat and cool a home to ensure it is always at the set temperature. The Instant Away feature allows homeowners to balance comfort and energy savings -- users input an estimated return time into the thermostat, and the device will control the environment to maximize energy savings and ensure a comfortable environment upon return. The Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat from Honeywell will be available at home improvement centers across the United States and Canada beginning in May, at a suggested retail price of $249.
