In life, you can’t get by on good looks alone; you have to be smart too. The same goes for today’s thermostats.
While many thermostats boast a modern design, there’s much more substance under the panel than ever before. “Smart” thermostats are gaining traction in North America and around the world. According to a Sandler Research report, the smart thermostats market is expected to grow exponentially in the next few years. In fact, the market is projected to generate more than $1.3 million in revenue by 2019.
Honeywell is a key player in this segment. Recently, the company introduced its Wi-Fi VisionPRO 8000 smart thermostat, which allows homeowners to manage their heating and cooling systems from a smartphone, tablet or computer. All they have to do is download the Total Connect Comfort app (for free) to their Apple or Android device and connect to the Wi-Fi. Then, whether they’re on their way home from work or in the house but too cozy in their beds to leave and turn the thermostat down (we’ve all been there), they’ll have a convenient way to operate their system.
But the Honeywell Wi-Fi VisionPRO 8000 is more than just a remote control for a thermostat. It also has many other helpful features.
Some of its “smartest” features include a default Energy Saver setting and Adaptive Intelligent Recovery feature. The Energy Saver setting adjusts the temperature in the home in order to reduce the homeowner’s heating or cooling expenses. With Adaptive Intelligent Recovery, the thermostat learns how long it takes your home to reach the desired temperature. Once it gains this information, it turns on the heat or air conditioning earlier to make sure the homeowner is comfortable at the time they expect.
Additionally, the thermostat helps out the homeowner by sending alerts to your phone or computer when the temperature or humidity is higher or lower than it should be. The home screen also displays the outside temperature and humidity for added convenience.
The thermostat also boasts touchscreen interfacing and menu-driven programming, which make operation as simple as possible. Honeywell even touts that the setup is so easy that no manual is needed! It’s also programmable, enabling the user to set a schedule for every day of the week to accommodate any lifestyle.
‘Smart’ Floor Heating
Best of all, the thermostat integrates seamlessly with a WarmlyYours floor-heating system. When purchased on warmlyyours.com, the Honeywell Wi-Fi VisionPRO 8000 comes with a 120- or 240-volt integration kit (depending on the user’s particular voltage) that enables the thermostat to control the floor-warming system. When connected, the homeowner has the same convenient features at his or her fingertips — control via a mobile device, Adaptive Intelligent Recovery, temperature alerts, seven-day programming and more.
