In an era where technological ‘smartness‘ is invading every facet of our life, it really doesn’t come as a surprise that even our thermostats are infused with the same advanced features. However, the above pictured Honeywell’s Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat does stand out with it’s internet connectivity and a slew of customization options to match your home decor. The Wi-Fi features allow the user to remotely control the device from smartphones. This is done through a specialized smartphone app (Total Connect Comfort app) and notifying alerts like e-mails; all of which allows you to regulate factors like temperature, power and humidity control.
As for its customization credentials, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat does have the ability to pose as your design tool. According to the company, you can choose the color scheme of the product just like you choose paints and fabric for you decor. Design wise, the device is also compact in its bearing by being 60 percent smaller than comparable thermostat models.
Finally, coming to its usability features, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat exhibits a touch-screen display, with a wealth of interface options. As for its ‘smart’ attributes, the thermostat has a Smart Response technology that automatically calculates the magnitude of heat required for a home, and then optimizes it with the preferred temperature levels of the home owner. There is also another Instant Away technology that helps in saving power (when the owners are away), thus making the device an energy-efficient mechanism.
