Add controlling a home thermostat and other appliances to list of things consumers can do with a smart phone.

Trane’s ComfortLink II Thermostat, launched in early 2011, features a seven-inch interactive, high-definition color touch screen, which provides an intuitive user interface that allows homeowners to see different room temperatures from one single control. With it, homeowners can create the ideal temperature and humidity for their home 'round the clock.
 
Remote access is provided through Schlage LiNK, a comprehensive internet-enabled system linking compatible lights and appliances. With it, homeowners can adjust home temperature remotely by computer or most web-enabled cell phones. Also, the system will send text and email alerts for routine maintenance and system alarms.

Smart phone control is just one of the ways the ComfortLink II gives homowners control over their home comfort and energy costs.

“The ComfortLink II Thermostat is not your typical thermostat and up to this point, there has been nothing like it available to consumers,” said Tim Storm, controls and zoning product manager of Trane. “Consumers are looking for a more interactive, personalized experience when it comes to technology, especially with energy management solutions for the home, and that’s exactly what this thermostat offers.”

Features of the Trane ComfortLink II Thermostat include:

  • A personal computer application that allows homeowners with a wireless router to control comfort from any room in the house, the backyard or office
  • Homeowners are able to program as much information as they want to see on their thermostat, including the status of their indoor air quality, humidity and individual room temperatures
  • In addition to providing the ideal indoor temperature, the ComfortLink II Thermostat provides homeowners with a five-day forecast, complete with radar image and weather alerts personalized for their ZIP code

When not in use, the thermostat display defaults to a screen saver that complements home décor, or homeowners can load photos and use the unit as a digital-picture frame.

Storm said greater control allows homeowners to manage their energy usage and their utility bills. Programming the thermostat to drop just a couple of degrees when no one is home can help save hundreds of dollars per year, he said.
