One of Life’s Little Luxuries + A Giveaway

01.15.14

This post brought to you by Honeywell International Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine.

A while back we chatted all about this beauty... and you know I can’t help but adore a cool gadget that makes my life easier, so I am excited to share the details of how this smart gorgeous thang has actually been working for me… and of course, I will be back tomorrow to show you how to install it! We are a DIY site after all, are we not?

And, just to spice things up a bit, one of you fabulous friends will win your very own!

It’s the Wi-fi Thermostat that listens, learns, and saves. The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control follows directions the first time, and doesn’t talk back like your children do (or at least mine). Truly, it’s just so very lovely and you will enjoy having this little luxury. It’s something akin to cell phones getting email capabilities, in my book. A true set of features you will wonder how you ever lived without…. you know, back in the ‘dark ages’.

For those of you who don’t win, the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control can be purchased at Home Depot, Best Buy and Amazon and The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control was named Best New Product of 2013 so I figure it’s worth a look see, no?

Plus it’s pretty, and that is a major plus in my book. I chose this gorgeous pinkish colored background above, but I’m crushing on the Emerald color too. Of course if you want something completely custom you can have it. Change it up as often as you like! I love a cool gadgety electronical, but when that sucker takes over your world in a big ugly way, well that’s just no good. I mean, beauty isn’t always sacrifice because this baby is so much more handsome than what I replaced it for. You can see that guy below. Yikes, and I didn’t even think it was hideous before, but the comparison is hard to deny. Beauty and brains… that’s the way we like em isn’t it folks?

So let’s talk turkey, because there are other smart thermostats available in the marketplace, and while this one is far superior for many reasons, one reason in particular is the end all be all, and that is the voice activated control. Having an app, is all that and a bag of chips, and this one has that as well. But having the ability to mumble in your sleepy delirium that it feels just a tad too warm or cold, and to have your thermostat spring to life and do something about it, is quite possibly about as close to having a boyfriend who can read between the lines when you say everything is ‘fine’ as you can get.

This cute guy was easy to install, and I had to go about things the ‘hard way’ to make it work, and still, completely easy… once I figured out where my furnace was. I know, right? Do you know where your furnace is? I hope 1 or 2 of you say no… eek! This girl has never had to mess with it for any reason so naturally I have ignored it entirely.

It was a snap to set up and the touch screen menus walk you through everything you need to do to enable wi-fi and download the app. After hanging out with it for a while it has managed to get my crazy up-down tendencies down to a science. I don’t have to mumble at it while I’m sleeping, it just seems to remember that I like it cooler at night like a good boyfriend remembers your anniversary (and Valentine’s Day). Life is just better with a little bit of luxury, my friends… can’t wait to see which one of you luckies gets to bring this beauty home!
