MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14, 2011 Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced EConnect™, a wireless thermostat designed for electric heat baseboards, convectors or fan-forced heaters. The two-piece design includes the thermostat and an equipment interface module (EIM) and communicates with each other using proven Honeywell RedLINK™ wireless technology.Today, most electric heat is controlled from a knob on a baseboard, or a built-in control on the heater, that is typically located near the floor a less than convenient control or sensing location for homeowners. Since EConnect is completely wireless, you can install its thermostat where it will provide optimal comfort control and convenience to the homeowner. Additionally, up to eight EIM's can be controlled from a single EConnect thermostat."Honeywell continues to investigate and find new ways to connect contractors to their customers in ways that help drive the bottom line," said John Tyhacz, vice president and general manager for Honeywell's Home Comfort and Energy Systems business.
