Installing a smart thermostat is one of those fabulous, somewhat luxe, yet totally simple upgrades you can make in your home, that will increase your standard of living and make your home work for you a bit more than it already does. It’s the little things like this that make a man feel like a king…. and by man, I obviously mean mankind, because we don’t discriminate here at TDC, am I right? One for all and all that jazz.
What If I told you that what you consider smart, just got a whole lot smarter? Consider yourself told… because that is precisely what I’m about to do!
Honeywell, a global energy efficiency leader, with products and technologies in more than 150 million homes today, introduced its latest connected home innovation: the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control. Yep you heard me right… voice control! Yippee…
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 (supa dupa cutting edge – just the way we like it, right?), the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control uses advanced far-field voice-control technology (say what?), which means…. that it cuts through the crazy noise from your kids and dogs (and spouses) and can recognize commands like: “make it four degrees warmer” or “make it much cooler” — even from across the room.
