“Today's consumers want security, comfort, convenience and awareness,” said Ilan Dee, global product director, Connected Home, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. “Software and apps have become just as important as the devices they control in creating a connected home experience.

Activity alerts go right to their mobile phone and let consumers know when the door has been opened. Dealers can grow their connected home offering with smart control of garage doors, and create new RMR opportunities.
