Set It, and Forget It...Or Don't
A first-of-its kind feature on the icomfort Wi-Fi is its one-touch "Away" mode. One touch on the thermostat, a smartphone or tablet puts the icomfort Wi-Fi touchscreen thermostat into energy saving – and money-saving – mode, making the icomfort Wi-Fi an ideal solution for homeowners seeking the ultimate level of convenience, home comfort customization and energy savings.
The Best Communicator You'll Ever Meet
The new icomfort Wi-Fi not only allows homeowners to save money on utility bills through its remote control access and one-touch "Away" mode, but it is also able to communicate with the HVAC system to make system adjustments and alert both the homeowner and installing dealer of any maintenance or repair issues, potentially saving the homeowner hundreds of dollars in unnecessary service calls.
"Although home automation has been at the top of builders' and homeowners' lists for many years, it is really just starting to pick up momentum in the heating, cooling and indoor air quality space, and we believe icomfort Wi-Fi will lead the way," said John Hurst, vice president, product management at Lennox International. "This simple-to-use, fully integrated and aesthetically appealing thermostat brings the ultimate level of convenience and customized comfort to homeowners, and with its launch, Lennox is furthering its commitment to provide homeowners with products that make it increasingly easy and affordable to be energy efficient."
Now You See It, Now You Don't
In addition to its energy-saving features, the icomfort Wi-Fi is the first thermostat with the capability to blend in with its surroundings, via customized "skins" that transform the touch-screen interface to assume the look of any wall color or pattern. In addition, homeowners can upload a photo to have the thermostat appear as a family portrait or even a favorite piece of artwork.
"From a decor standpoint, thermostats aren't often a welcomed addition to a home," said Hurst. "However, with the Lennox icomfort Wi-Fi, homeowners can choose a design that integrates with any decor – and no one has to know it disguises a state-of-the-art home-comfort management system that you control whenever you want to from wherever you may be."
Weather on Demand – Knowing is Half the Battle
Designed for easy integration with a homeowner's heating and cooling system, the icomfort Wi-Fi can also be integrated with a whole-home air purification system and dehumidifier to allow for maximum indoor air quality. And similar to the cruise control on an automobile, the thermostat monitors outdoor conditions and indoor set points and can automatically decide between heating and cooling and dehumidification and humidification based on what is needed for an optimum level of comfort.
