HouseLogix today announced an Elan driver for the official Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat Comfort Control API, a line of connected thermostats that allow consumers to regulate their energy usage and home comfort through their automation platform. 

Featuring a touch screen display, the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat allows consumers to control their heating and cooling remotely through the Total Connect Comfort app.  The thermostat also allows control of humidity level, filter replacement, and detects loss of internet connectivity. 

The Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat driver offers native integration from the elegant ELAN remote, touch panels, keypads and even the ELAN g!Mobile app. A new registration process also makes it easier for the home owner and dealer to configure integration. Using the integrated.house portal a home owner can register and link thermostats they want connected to their automation system without having to give their dealer access to their Honeywell username and password. This offers enhanced flexibility and security to the consumer as they can even revoke access to thermostats. 

The Elan experience is maximized with the latest release, giving the home owner the ability to view historic temperature levels and even set schedules and comfort presets. 

A full list of features include:

  • Full support for the Elan Thermostat GUI
  • Scheduling supported through the Elan interface
  • View and set the HVAC Mode (HEAT, COOL and AUTO) 
  • Modify the hold mode directly from the UI
  • View and set the fan mode (On, Auto, and Circulate)
  • Full control over the heating and cooling set points
  • View past history and graphing
  • Free 48 hour trial period - simply enter "TRIAL" into the license key field!
