Updated: 12/20/2021

If cold temps in your house are ruining your ideal wintertime hygge, take comfort in our smart home solutions that will get you cozy in no time.

1. Honeywell Home T9 Smart Thermostat

For those winter mornings when it’s just too frigid to get out of bed, simply stay under the covers and turn up your T9 Smart Thermostat through the app or ask your favorite voice assistant to do it for you. Once your room is warm, it’s much easier to get out of bed and face the day – even if it’s a snowdrift up to your front door.

For your return home each evening after work, the T9 gets your home “just right.” The “Home” and “Away” modes work automatically with your smartphone’s location to know when the last person leaves your home to adjust the temperature for savings. This geofencing technology also senses your approach and adjusts your home’s temperature to comfort. Or, if you prefer, the T9 can follow any heating schedule you set, and comes with smart room sensors to extend the reach of the thermostat and delivers the right temperature to the right room at the right time.

2. Honeywell Home T10 Pro Smart Thermostat with Smart Home Sensors

If you have uneven temperatures throughout your house and a humidification or dehumidification system, a professional can help by installing the T10 Pro Smart Thermostat with smart room sensorsIt has all the benefits of the T9 but the sensors can help measure and control heat and humidity in the rooms that matter most to you. This whole-home solution also can be set to automatically adjust comfort levels based on the occupancy in each room.

Since the T9 and T10 can be accessed remotely, you can keep your home’s temperature in control, even if you decide to escape to the beach for a mid-winter break.

3. Resideo Water Leak Detector

Wintertime can wreak havoc on your plumbing if you don’t stay on top of it. Freezing temps can lead to bursting pipes, major flooding and a small fortune in damages. You can help avoid future water catastrophes with our Water Leak & Freeze Detector. Always on duty, it works over WiFi with our app to notify your smartphone if the temperature dips down into a range where your pipes could potentially freeze and burst – giving you time to react.

4. Energy Management Solutions and Software

Resideo offers homeowners and contractors the ability to monitor the major appliances in a home. Just as an electrocardiogram, or EKGmeasures electrical activity of the heart, this technology can track the electrical “pulse” of a furnace, water heater or AC unit. The data can be fed to the HVAC contractor and an alert sent to the homeowner that they may have an issue. This allows the contractor to be proactive and alert the homeowner that they’re seeing an issue with the furnace and can repair it, well in advance of an impending cold snap. Because the last thing you want is a dead furnace in the middle of a polar vortex. Resideo’s Pro-IQ™ LifeWhere technology helps contractors be more connected than ever to a homeowner’s equipment helping to ensure their technicians can show up with the right diagnosis and right part on that first truck roll.

Resideo's smart home solutions help you take control of winter, so you can focus on what really matters this winter – staying in and getting cozy.
