Honeywell will start selling hotel room thermostats that can
be controlled by Amazon's Alexa voice-activated technology.
In addition to controlling heat and air conditioning, the Inncom
e7 Thermostat allows voice-activated lighting and drapery controls, and can be
programmed for TV and video on-demand controls.
The product can reduce energy costs by automatically setting
empty rooms to room temperature.
Honeywell says its thermostats are in more than 1.5 million
hotel rooms worldwide.
