MINNEAPOLIS, May 19, 2009 Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced a full suite of wireless products for homeowners looking for efficient ways to heat and cool their homes. Featuring proprietary RedLink™ technology, Honeywell's wireless suite of home comfort products has been designed to work together to maximize home efficiency and comfort."Honeywell's home comfort products can help homeowners save money on energy costs when heating and cooling systems are not required," says John Tyhacz, vice president and general manger for Honeywell's home comfort business. "The combination of indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity levels can lead to better energy-saving decisions such as opening windows to cool the house versus running the air conditioning."Most thermostats today are not located in the area where homeowners spend the majority of their time. The new Wireless FocusPRO® programmable thermostat can be installed in any area of the home such as the living room or den. Paired with Honeywell's new wireless outdoor sensor, the easy-to-read, digital backlit display can show the outdoor air temperature and humidity levels, allowing homeowners to make informed decisions about their indoor air temperature and humidity.Furthermore, Honeywell's Portable Comfort Control (PCC) gives homeowners freedom to make adjustments to the temperature of their home from anywhere, and in any room of the house, without having to get-up and manually adjust the thermostat. The handheld, wireless control senses the temperature of the room that it is in and allows the homeowner to make adjustments directly from the PCC.Additional savings can be achieved by creating heating and cooling zones. Honeywell's wireless zoning systems, featuring the TrueZone™ panel, can easily be added to an existing HVACHoneywell Suite of Residential Wireless Offeringssystem and requires no wires, holes in the walls, patching or painting. The temperature for each zone can be adjusted from the Wireless FocusPRO thermostat or the PCC.When properly installed by an HVAC contractor, and used as directed, Honeywell estimates that homeowner's can cut annual heating and cooling cost up to 33 percent or by $200 each year depending on geographic location.These products are available now through contractors.
