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® smart thermostat with Wi-Fi® 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 mobile app gives homeowners access to the York® Affinity 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.
