Honeywell at the centre of the smart home

As the market in the smart home continues to experience rapid growth, Honeywell has made its connected thermostats range compatible with an even wider range of smart home systems.

Honeywell’s connected thermostats work with an ever-growing number of smart home devices. The Lyric T6 and T6R connected thermostats can be controlled centrally by using the Amazon Echo, IFTTT, Apple Watch and Apple HomeKit. Honeywell’s zoning solution – evohome – and its Single Zone Thermostat work with Amazon Echo and users can add further layers of control by using IFTTT commands. Google Home compatibility will also be added in the near future.

Andy Mansfield, Marketing Communications Manager at Honeywell, explained: “By making our thermostats compatible with as many home automation platforms as possible, installers can be confident in recommending a connected Honeywell heating control to customers who are looking for a thermostat which will integrate seamlessly with their automation system – whether they have one now or will purchase one in the future.

“As these home hubs become more popular, they will influence homeowners’ decisions more and more when purchasing heating controls.” Andy continues. “With this in mind, we will continue to develop these integrations, increasing the opportunities for installers to make additional sales and upsell connected heating controls.”
