Brand New: The Honeywell Talking Thermostat

Just when you thought you had seen everything, Mike Keller and his team of control ninjas at Honeywell, introduce a talking thermostat. Check this video out to see how it works. Our sources tell us the new talking thermostat will be shipping soon.
Stay tuned to ControlTrends for the latest updates on the ‘Talking Tstat”.
It looks like Honeywell just took a big step forward in the “my thermostat is cooler than your thermostat” wars started by those innovative folks at Nest. The big question is how will this new development effect the prestigious ControlTrends 2013 Thermostat of The Year Award?
And yes, that is the Honeywell Talking thermostat you see advertised in the Wall Street Journal!
Let me know what you think in comments.
