“Alexa, can you lower my thermostat?” Honeywell and Amazon can now make your home smarter and more comfortable with just a few words.
Life can keep us busy and when we’re multitasking, there are times when you may not have a chance to walk over to your smart thermostat or pull up its app on your smartphone or tablet to change the temperature. Luckily, Honeywell and Amazon know this.
Now, if you have one of Honeywell’s connected thermostats – such as Lyric, Total Connect Comfort or RedLink models – along with an Amazon Echo, making home comfortable is as simple as saying, “Alexa, make my home 72 degrees.”
The Honeywell Skill is the latest collaboration between Honeywell and Amazon, allowing customers to discover new ways to better connect with their homes and match their lifestyles. It’s one of more than 1,000 available Skills for the Amazon platform, making it easier than ever to create smart features in your home.
Honeywell customers can still change the temperature, set up schedules and make other changes using their thermostat’s appropriate Honeywell app or on the thermostat itself.
No more overheating while you’re in the kitchen or cleaning house or having to abandon your spot on the couch or get out of bed to be more comfortable. With Honeywell and Amazon, you can just say the word!
