A Voice Controlled Thermostat by Honeywell + $100 Gift Card Giveaway

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!
Lets get to the giveaway shall we?

CLEAN THE BATHROOMS.
I wish my brother & sister that need kidney transplants would get a donor.
Frankly, I would love something like this. My brother stops at my house … 8 minutes from the dialysis center … after each dialysis to rest before going home. He either turns the heat up or shuts the A/C off because he feels so cold. He often forgets to adjust it back & I get home from work and my house is stinking hot!
Wish my thermostat could tell when the beautiful spring and fall weather is outside and turn off thermostat and tell you to open windows 🙂
Just cleaning up after the kids would helpful
I wish that it will be voice activated to turn off lights and also alert us if someone is at the door. My husband and I are both deaf. So that would be a really cool All -in-one kind of deal.
This looks so cool! I’d love to be able to tell it to do the laundry (my least favorite job OF ALL TIME).
Those are indeed awesome! I’d want it to do the dishes! haha
I wish my thermostat would be able to make dinner!
I wish dinner could be prepared every night for my family.
Oh my word! That looks so cool! I’m constantly changing the temp on our thermostat and this sounds like it would make life easier AND be super fun! 🙂 If I could have the thermostat genie grant me one wish it would be (I feel like I should say ‘world peace’ here lol) it would be to have my whole extended family live near me or at the very least get to go on a fun vacation together!
I’d love if mine would make me debt-free 🙂
Remind me of appointments.
I WISH my thermostat could fold the laundry AND put them away! Simply giving me more time to shop and craft! hehehe
I would love a thermostat that I could change on my way home on a cold winter day, getting my house nice and toasty!
Or of course, it be nice it it gave me gift cards to all my favorite stores every now and then 🙂
Wish my thermostat would keep an even temperature from room to room!
My command: “Dust the house, please”.

I wish the voice controlled thermostat by Honeywell would sanitize the air and spritz air freshner as needed!
I wish that it would sense an empty room and adjust the temperature to a tolerable level and then crank it up when someone was in there. And that if we had a party in the house, it would sense that and turn itself down or up depending if I was cooling or heating the house at the time.

How cool! My husband has been talking non-stop about these!!! My wish would be for there to be no blizzards this year in our coastal town. There was a lot of damage last year.
Love to have someone/something obey my every word.
Automatically clean the bathrooms!!
Clean the house!
Please clean the house!!
I wish it could cook dinner for my family 🙂
I would love it if the thermostat would clean my house…. And keep my dog from shedding! lol
Feed the animals.
I wish the thermostat could mow my lawn!
oh this sounds SO cool Jess! and I love that you can control it with an app. we turn down the thermostat at night and I can’t tell you how many nights we are already in bed and realize we didn’t turn it down – I would love to just grab my phone and do it!
Wish my thermostat can watch the kids while I relax!
That is the coolest EVER! I am always forgetting to turn down the thermostat….now I could just walk by and tell it what to do!
PS I wish the thermostat did the dishes. 🙂
I wish mine could make me dinner and a drink 😉
I’ve been searching fruitlessly for good pumpkin donuts in Colorado Springs, so I’d ask for the perfect pumpkin donut…and maybe a glass of red wine 😉
How about “Do the laundry” or “Groom the dogs”?
I wish the thermostat would get rid of the dust bunnies that suddenly appear out of nowhere.
My response would be for the heat to be on when I get up on certain mornings at five am. Wow that would be nice to regulate it for just those days. Thanks!
This is an awesome idea! It would be wonderful if I could simply say, “Hello Thermostat, Please make me a cup of coffee and bring it to me in bed!”
I can’t just pick ONE!!! probably a generalized ‘pick up’ if I had to choose!
My greatest wish would be for my voice to be on there first instead of the hubbys so that I could control the house temperature! Finally, I would have a little help with my hot flashes! LOL
Wish it could order and arrange delivery of dinner:)
I want it to cook dinner, any dinner, when I ask. :0)
Clean the house.
Boy, wouldn’t it be amazing if we could have little gadgets like this, that would either print money on demand, or harness the heat from the sun (minus the cost of set up & need for bulky solar panels) directly into our home….costing us nothing for heating???? Wow…seriously though, something like this would be a neat little energy saver that would definitely make life easier. Thanks for the chance at such a great giveaway! :0)
This thermostat is great! I would love for the thermostat to be able to sense the mood of the family, and be able to put out a calming fragrance when it’s chaotic, and a fragrance to help with energy when you’re feeling lazy!
Clean my house!
I would like it to keep all the dust gone. Thanks.
If we’re really dreaming, I wish my thermostat would cook dinner for my family every night! I hate to cook and say when I make my millions, I’ll hire a chef 🙂
I wish it would ‘ Make me a latte with a sugar please’
Clean my house 🙂
I wish the thermostat could cook the dinner and clean the dishes :), but I would settle for just preheating the oven before I get home from work!
It’s the little things in life 😉
make my utility bill cheaper.
I wish it would start a fire in my wood burning stove.
If I get to dream…I wish my thermostat would turn on the espresso machine on and have my mocha ready by the time I stumble out to the kitchen!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could command it to make my coffee, empty the dishwasher and start the laundry?? Spitting money out randomly would be good too.
I wish i could tell it to clean so and bring me a masseuse!
My miracle thermostat would be told to cure all cancer patients especially my best friend.
I would love if my thermostat could change diapers! :)> Wouldn’t that be nice?
I wish my thermostst could do dishes!! 🙂
Thermostat…prepare dinner please.
I just want my floors to be nice and toasty when I wake up in the morning…and breakfast ready, kids dressed for school, clothes ironed….
I wish my thermostat would put away my mountains of laundry!
This thermostat sounds awesome! I love honeywell products, but it’s crazy that it’ll soon be possible to tell my thermostat to turn the a/c on!! I can’t wait for this product to come out. I didn’t know they made hoe security products, I’ll definitely be looking into those too 🙂
Make dinner 🙂
I really wish the thermostat was connected to the laundry. Start to finish. Done. That would be amazing….
I wish it could do laundry
Make me a sammich!
Would love it to continue good health and keep employed.
Remind me to go grocery shopping. Our cupboards seem to be bare too often! Thans for the chance to win!
I wish my thermostat would fetch me a nice hot cup of tea and my laptop so that I could Pin the day away. Sigh
Very nice! I would love these features in the thermostat. Warming the house up on a cold night from an app would be fabulous.
I wish my thermostat could filter all of the dust and durt out of my home on command. 🙂
I would love to be able to control the temp from my husband. He doesn’t quite get hot flashes!
Rub my feet!
I wish the thermostat would sound an alarm when the weather is nice to remind to get off the computer and go outside and enjoy it!
I just discovered your blog about a month ago via Pinterest & I just love your style & creativity! Thanks for sharing.
I would love a command center to go grocery shopping for me & put all the goodies away so I never run out of anything.
Fold the Laundry! I hate that task!
I wish I could tell it to make dinner! :p
Thermostat genie ‘ my wish is to have 75 degrees weather inside and outside all year long’
Cleaning the house would be nice!
I would wish that it would make my yard the perfect temperature too 🙂
This would be great for my Mom who has a hard time seeing the small screen on other thermostats.
Well, if we’re aiming high I would ask for world peace (seriously, I would)
Tell it to pick up all the clutter so I could relax
i want my thermostat to dispense strong, hot coffee
I’d want to get a thermostat that could set the alarm system as well as control the temp.
I wish I could command it to do the dishes, and well a million dollars would be nice too 🙂
Let the dogs out, for the 100th time today!
I’ve decided to give a practical example, and if it could tell me the air quality (like the level of VOCs), then that would be a nice feature. If it controlled all the lights, too, that would also be great. Although, if it was into dusting the furniture or paying me for doing it by dispersing money, like an ATM, then that would also be nice, but now we’re getting carried away. 😉
