This post brought to you by Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control. All opinions are 100% mine.
I was recently contacted by Honeywell to share their new innovative thermostat, Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control. Seriously? I couldn’t believe it and the fact that it has wifi capabilities is even more amazing. Our home alarm system is from Honeywell and we have always had great experiences with the brand so I said, “sure, send me the thermostat, we would love to try it out!” If you are not familiar with Honeywell, they are a global energy efficiency leader with products and technologies in more than 150 million homes. The Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control will be released soon and even my dad is pretty excited to try it out.
The new voice technology allows consumers to simply say, “Hello, thermostat,” to activate and control their home’s temperature.
A first-of-its-kind consumer device, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control utilizes advanced far-field voice-control technology, which breaks through the ambient noise of a busy household and recognizes commands such as “make it four degrees warmer” or “make it much cooler” — even from across the room.
Upon installation, the thermostat immediately recognizes the homeowner’s voice and adjusts the temperature setting based on their request. This is the first cloud-based voice controlled solution that will get smarter over time, adding more commands based on its interactions with homeowners.
In addition, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control allows design-focused homeowners to customize it to match or accent their home décor. The thermostat also offers Wi-Fi connectivity that allows consumers to regulate their energy usage and home comfort through their smart phone. Homeowners can adjust the thermostat by using the Total Connect Comfort smart phone app – which is the top-rated thermostat app on Google Play™ [https://bit.ly/14jyXP8] or iTunes™ [https://bit.ly/14V3fcH]
I love the idea of being able to control the thermostat via an app. How cool! My grandmother will be fascinated with this as she loves to look at my ipad or my iphone. My grandfather on the other hand, will say, “what will they come up with next?” He is 84 years old and has been through tremendous change in our world and this will trigger an hour long story of how there was no electricity when he was little. ha. Not really but you know what I mean!
