Honeywell WiFi Programmable Thermostat

3

My husband and I have been working on controlling out energy usages when it comes to heating and cooling our home. We have installed a gas stove in the living room to cut down heating costs in the winter, but we weren’t sure what we were going to do in spring and summer. With so many allergies in our house, we tend to not open our windows… which means the air conditioner is usually turned on in late spring.

When we were offered the opportunity to try the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat we knew that would be our answer! With access from your smart phone or other device, user-friendly scheduling options, and smart technology that knows your home’s unique heating and cooling cycles, this thermostat is going to help keep our budget on track, without compromising our comfort—what’s not to love about that?

I was hoping to have a bunch of installation photos to share with you, but my husband surprised me by installing it while I was away at Brandcation. He did mention that the installation video, if watched all the way through, was super helpful.

Connecting the thermostat to our phone was as easy as creating an account at mytotalconnectcomfort.com and installing the app on our phone.

Checking on the air conditions in our house gives us the ability to raise or lower the set temperature on a whim. If we know we will be gone for an extended period of time we can let the house get a little cooler (or warmer depending on the season), and about 30 minutes to an hour before we get home we can set it back to our comfort level so that it’s just right (or not uncomfortable) when we get home.

Last night I was warm in bed. Warm, but sleepy and too lazy to get out of bed to check the thermostat. I picked up my phone, logged in and was able to fix the temperature and roll back over to sleep without getting out of bed. Crazy huh?

5

The Honeywell thermostat is considerably smaller than than our old one, so we still have a little patching and touch up paint to do, but it blends in well on our green wall. I’m loving how simple it is to use… to over ride a program simply push the up or down button and then it will ask you if you’d like a permanent hold, or just hold until your next scheduled temperature change.

Some other notable features to mention.

  • Custom Schedule: Typically our heat would kick on before we got up, which would heat up our room and often wake us up earlier than we wanted. We have it scheduled to turn on after everyone is up and around.
  • Convenient App: As I mentioned earlier, I can control the temperature while laying in bed! The free app lets you control your thermostat from your computer, tablet and smartphone, whether you’re across the room or around the world! Available for iOS and Android devices.
  • Touchscreen Display: You can set the color scheme of the thermostat to match the colors of your home! It also shows the current outside temp and indoor humidity!
  • Simple Setup: No new wiring needed for installation. My husband mentioned install was fairly simple. We did have 2 extra wires there were being used on our old thermostat that he never figured out where they went, but things are running smoothly.
  • Auto Alerts: Filter change reminders and extreme temperature alerts are sent to your connected devices and are displayed on the thermostat, so you’ll never miss an alert!
