Honeywell’s Connected Thermostats Now Work With IFTTT And Samsung SmartThings
Consumers are increasingly looking for ways to connect their lives and homes. According to Honeywell’s Home Connectivity Survey, 90 percent of Americans have a desire to automate their homes in some way and are clamoring for new ways to do so. Thanks to new updates for a number of Honeywell connected thermostats managing home comfort has become even easier.
IFTTT Gives Homeowners More Home Comfort Flexibility
Honeywell has a new channel on the popular consumer app IFTTT that gives homeowners more options for remote control of their home comfort system. IFTTT, which stands for “If This, Then That,” is a web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called recipes, to trigger actions from their connected devices. IFTTT recipes enable homeowners to automatically link to and manage their Honeywell Lyric™ or other Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostats using IFTTT’s simple, do-it-yourself “recipes.”
With Honeywell Recipes on IFTTT, a connected thermostat is even more customizable to meet a homeowner’s needs.
Honeywell Lyric with Samsung SmartThings Can Make a Smarter Home
Honeywell has also joined together with the team at Samsung SmartThings to allow homeowners to connect and control a Honeywell Lyric™ (read news release) thermostat (first and second generation) through Samsung’s new SmartThings Hub and mobile app (available for iOS, Android, and Windows). The SmartThings Hub enables homeowners to manage and control connected devices in their home, such as smart locks, connected light bulbs and switches, speakers, and others.
Consumers who own a Lyric thermostat can now instantly adjust their home’s temperature through the hub and mobile app anytime or anywhere.Other Honeywell and SmartThings products, including Honeywell’s Wi-Fi Smart and Redlink thermostats, will be able to interact using the same secure cloud technology in the future.
