The Honeywell WiFi thermostats are a series of WiFi thermostats that have been tested and certified for integration with the ClareHome system.
When integrating a Honeywell WiFi thermostat into your ClareHome project, no extra connections are necessary. Install the thermostat according to the Honeywell documentation, register the thermostat on the Honeywell portal, enable auto mode in the thermostat, and then connect it to the network using IP.
All HVAC integrations share a common UI, so that the user experience is consistent. Temperature settings can be controlled via events. Use Fusion’s Scenes and Rules to automate the actions your customers want.
The Following figure shows the Honeywell controls on the ClareHome UI.
