Honeywell, a diversified technology and manufacturing leader, has launched its Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat that facilitates energy management in homes across the UAE and wider region.
The new touchscreen thermostat allows residents to remotely monitor and manage their comfort settings anytime, anywhere from their smart devices, said a statement from the company.
The thermostat can be easily managed with Honeywell’s Total Connect Comfort app for iOS, available now on the App Store. The app enables homeowners to view and change air conditioning system settings and gives them the ability to monitor, manage and schedule home comfort on-the-go, all while being kept up to date with regular temperature alerts either via the app or through email, it added.
Additional features of the thermostat include: indoor and outdoor temperature readings; humidity levels displayed on the home screen; maintains time during power failures; comes with a one-year warranty backed by the most trusted brand in the industry.
Following the professional installation of the thermostat by Honeywell certified installers, the company will provide aftercare services that includes maintenance and support for ongoing queries, said the statement.
The Honeywell WiFi Smart Thermostat has been specially designed to support air conditioning systems usually found in villas and low-rise apartment buildings. The thermostat does not currently support systems usually found in high-rise residential buildings, it added.
The new thermostat is available at Apple Retail Stores in the UAE and at the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com/ae).
Pete Costa, vice president of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions for the Middle East, said: “Having an efficient way to manage temperature in your home is more essential in the UAE than in other parts of the world because of the extreme weather conditions we face.”
“Our Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat gives users more flexibility and control in managing their home comfort and caters to the fast-paced lives of people in the UAE and the wider region,” he added.
Dilip Sinha, general manager for Honeywell Environmental and Energy Solutions in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (Meta), said: “In addition to making it more convenient to manage comfort and drive energy efficiency, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat’s display can be customised according to the colour preferences of design-focused homeowners who are looking to complement their décor.”
“There are more than two dozen different screen colour settings for the device that can be selected to enhance its appeal,” he added
