Honeywell's new voice-activated smart thermostatWe go hands-on with Honeywell's new connected thermostat you control with your voice.
Hi, I'm Scott Stein here in New York. Have you ever wanted to talk to your thermostat and tell it to be a little hotter, a little cooler? Well that Jetson's future is here. The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with voice control is coming at the end of October for a $349. Now Honeywell has already had a Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat before and it connects to a very popular iOS and Android app that allows you to adjust the temperature. Now, it's got voice control. And it's actually Cloud connected. So right now, you could say make it warmer, make it a lot warmer, make it colder, make it a lot colder, 1 degree, 4 degrees and you have to say, "Hello thermostat." Like everything in your home, maybe you'll start having conversations with it. And there is a capability [unk] learning, so maybe in the future you could say other things like, "Hoy! It's [unk] in here." You can go cooler or warmer, whatever you want. Talk to your thermostat if you'd like to do that. But the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat will be available soon on Scott Stein with a quick look at the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat here in New York.
