Thermostat Offers Beauty and Brains: Match or Accent Home Décor while Balancing Comfort and Energy Savings

MINNEAPOLIS, April 10, 2013 – /PRNewswire/ – Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat, a groundbreaking connected thermostat that allows design-focused homeowners to customize it to match or accent their home décor. In addition, the Honeywell thermostat offers Wi-Fi connectivity that allows consumers to regulate their energy usage and home comfort through their smartphone.

Featuring a touch screen display, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is equipped with mobile and email alerts that put homeowners in control by notifying them when their 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 ho me loses power or Internet connectivity.

With Smart Response technology, the thermostat learns how long it takes to heat and cool a home to ensure it is always at the temperature homeowners want, at the time they want it. The Instant Away feature allows homeowners to balance comfort and energy savings: on your way out the door, simply tell the Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat when you will be back and it can start saving energy instantly while you are gone.

The Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat converts an energy-saving product into a design tool. “As home décor evolves, consumers want their thermostat to complement their décor,” said Beth Wozniak, president of Honeywell Environmental and Combustion Controls. “It puts creativity in the hands of the homeowner with our Color Match feature. Just as they pick fabrics and paint, they can choose what the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat looks like in their home.”

The Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat’s innovative design, 60 percent smaller than other connected thermostat models, is a first in the do-it-yourself (DIY) market:

Contained within the elegantly designed thermostat is Honeywell’s scheduling technology that learns homeowners’ daily schedule in just minutes. Other thermostats require several days of homeowner adjustments to teach the thermostat about their lifestyles and habits.

The Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat from Honeywell will be available at home improvement centers across the United States and Canada beginning in May 2013 at a suggested retail price of $249. Homeowners who prefer installation via their heating and cooling contractor can ask for the Prestige IAQ, which has all the features of the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat plus indoor air quality controls.
