Smart thermostat detects outdoors allergens for better indoor air quality

There are a lot of smart thermostats on the market, but a new system from Lennox can crank up the ventilation when it detects high levels of outdoor allergens.

The Lennox iComfort S30 thermosat doesn't just control temperatures like a conventional thermostat, it automatically adapts to individual lifestyles – creating the ultimate living environment through industry leading features:

Energy Savings: Using the GPS on your smartphone, the iComfort S30's Smart Away™ Mode can detect when the family is away and automatically set the thermostat to an energy-saving mode and return a home to the desired temperature when a family member starts returning home – adapting to a household's unique schedules.  

Comfort: The iComfort S30's "Feels Like" Temperature, similar to a weather report, takes into account indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity to make a home feel exactly like the homeowner wants it to. For example, when the thermostat is set to 72 degrees, a home will "Feel Like" 72 degrees year-round.

Healthy Air:The first-of-its-kind Allergen Defender on the iComfort S30 gives immediate allergy relief by monitoring air quality and pollen levels outside. When high levels of pollutants and allergens are detected, the fan automatically turns on to keep the home's air clean.

Peace of Mind: The thermostat's advanced warning system predicts problems before they occur and alerts the homeowner's service company.
