Smart thermostat puts homeowners in control

A new smart thermostat not only controls the temperature, it manages indoor allergens and lets you know the weather forecast.

At the 2016 International Builders' Show, Jennifer Franz, product manager with Lennox International, reviewed the Lennox iComfort S30 thermostat that automatically adapts to individual lifestyles.

Energy Savings: Using the GPS on your smartphone, the iComfort S30's Smart AwayMode 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.
