Technology these days is just amazing. Honeywell, a global energy efficiency leader with products and technologies in more than 150 million homes, has introduced me to its latest connected home innovation: the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control. Many of us talk to our phones to deliver commands, but now you can talk to your thermostat to activate and control your home’s temperature! How cool is that?
The new voice technology allows consumers to simply say, “Hello, thermostat,” to activate and control their home’s temperature. This is a brand new consumer device being released to the market. 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 (ahem… my screaming children…) and recognizes commands such as, “I’m cold”, “make it four degrees warmer” or “make it much cooler”, even from across the room.
Upon installation, the thermostat immediately recognizes your voice and will adjust the temp. based on your 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 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™ [http://bit.ly/14jyXP8] or iTunes™ [http://bit.ly/14V3fcH] Honeywell’s Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control will be available beginning November 2013 at a suggested retail price of $349.
