Honeywell: Energy-Consumption Control Thermostat

September 2, 2013
Energy-Consumption Control ThermostatWi-Fi-enabled, the Total Connect Comfort with ADR thermostat for the home connects with a suite of utility technology and services to manage energy consumption. The solution helps consumers trim their electricity bills while enabling utilities to avoid brownouts and blackouts during summer’s hottest days. With this technology, utilities recruit homeowners to participate in programs to reduce their energy use when demand spikes, also known as automated demand response (ADR). Participating customers receive a Honeywell Wi-Fi programmable thermostat installed in their home. Using the Total Connect Comfort app, homeowners can program and adjust their temperature and manage energy use from the living room couch or around the world with a smartphone or any Web-connected device. For utilities, the Wi-Fi thermostat connects directly to smart grid technology developed by the manufacturer’s Akuacom business. The Akuacom software as a service (SaaS) creates secure, two-way communications between the utility and homes, which allow utilities to send messages directly to the thermostats to temporarily reduce home energy use when demand threatens grid stability, usually on the hottest days of the year. The software makes the utilities’ demand management programs more effective by ensuring their ability to reduce peak energy load.
