New WiFi thermostat from Honeywell

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, May 2, 2013

A new WiFi thermostat from Honeywell.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   High tech thermostats are becoming more common and the latest model from Honeywell is designed to keep you easily connected to your home heating and cooling system from anywhere.  And the LCD screen can been programmed to match your home décor.   Senior Product Manager Mike Hoppe…

“This is our new WiFi Smart Thermostat.  This is going to be aimed towards the DIY consumer.  For the first time it’s a thermostat that allows you to customize the color to match your décor or your personal preferences.  You could set it for holiday colors, Halloween, black and orange for example.  So it’s fully customizable and that’s the screen colors to match the wall, for example, in a home.”

A pretty cool touch…or warm …as the case may be.   And it can help you save energy.  The Honeywell WiFi Smart Thermostat arrives this month for about 250 dollars.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
