Honeywell introduces Total Connect Comfort Services, a system that allows home and business owners to remotely monitor and manage their heating and cooling systems with a PC, smart- phone or tablet device. The services can be accessed through a web portal or mobile application and is ideal for customers that have vacation homes, investment properties or multi-site businesses.

At the center of Total Connect Comfort Services is the RedLINK™ Internet Gateway, a modem-like device that connects wirelessly to any RedLINK Comfort System and to a user's Internet router. Once a system is connected, users can view and change system settings, view and set the temperature, view the indoor and outdoor humidity, access multiple thermostats in a zoned system and receive automatic upgrades as new, additional features become available. Furthermore, users can set up customizable system performance alerts for added safety, comfort and energy efficiency as needed.

The EConnect™ wireless thermostat is designed for electric heat baseboards, convectors or fan-forced heaters. The two-piece design includes the thermostat and an equipment interface module (EIM) that communicate with each other using proven Honeywell RedLINK™ wireless technology.

Since EConnect is completely wireless, users can install the thermostat where it will provide optimal comfort control and convenience to the home-owner. Additionally, up to eight EIM's can be controlled from a single EConnect thermostat.

EConnect works with a variety of RedLINK accessories, including:

  • Wireless Outdoor Air Sensor — Displays the outdoor temperature and humidity on the Prestige 2.0, Prestige IAQ 2.0 and Portable Comfort Control.

  • Portable Comfort Control — Allows users to make adjustments from anywhere in the conditioned space and can be used to change the set temperature in any zone in the system from anywhere in the home or building.

  • RedLINK Internet Gateway — Connects to any RedLINK-enabled thermostat to remotely monitor and access an HVAC system from a PC, smartphone or tablet device with Total Connect Comfort Services.

The Prestige® 2.0 IAQ comfort system is a programmable thermostat system that meets the needs of both residential and light commercial applications. The two-piece design includes the thermostat and an equipment interface module (EIM) that communicate with each other using RedLINK™ wireless technology.

The Prestige 2.0 IAQ guides contractors through the system set-up process. Contractors can select “residential” or “commercial” using the installer programming feature. If “commercial” is selected, the thermostat will use commercial language and scheduling features, control algorithms to meet building codes and Title 24 compliance, offer override durations, occupancy initiation and economizer/time-of-day control.
