Homeowners Can Save Energy and Prevent Unexpected Repairs With New Johnson
Controls Smart Thermostat With Wi-Fi(R) Capabilities
Monitor and Adjust Home Heating and Cooling Systems Using Mobile
MILWAUKEE, WI -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/14 -- Johnson Controls
(NYSE: JCI), a global multi-industrial company with established core
businesses in the automotive, building and energy storage industries,
introduces a York(R) smart thermostat with Wi-Fi(R) capabilities.
Wi-Fi allows homeowners to use mobile devices to remotely monitor
their home comfort systems, enabling them to make energy-saving
adjustments to system settings. In addition, reminders and alerts can
be sent to homeowners to prompt servicing, potentially saving energy
and preventing unexpected repairs.
Homeowners can easily schedule multiple custom daily events and
vacation schedules on their thermostat, as well as home/away settings
on their smartphone or tablet device, for greater energy savings.
Temperature and humidity notifications help to keep pipes from
freezing and prevent mold. In addition, the advanced "Quick Heat and
Cool" feature allows homeowners to temporarily "speed up" their
system to the highest capacity to hit heating or cooling set points
quickly. York's IntelliComfort(TM) mobile app gives homeowners access
to the York(R) Affinity(TM) Residential Communicating Control system,
providing remote temperature and humidity control for up to six
separate zones throughout the house. The mobile display also allows
homeowners to control more than one home, if necessary.
The York Affinity Residential Communicating Control with Wi-Fi
capabilities features a high-definition touch screen with
easy-to-read icons. It also displays information in multiple
languages, including English and French, and offers either Fahrenheit
or Celsius settings.
