New Nest Thermostat E. “E” stands for EVERYONE!

When​ ​Nest​ ​started​ ,​ ​they​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​help​ ​the​ ​world​ ​save​ ​energy​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Learning Thermostat.​ ​Since​ ​then,​ ​Nest​ ​customers​ ​have​ ​saved​ ​more​ ​than​ ​14​ ​billion​ ​kilowatt-hours​ ​of energy. To put that in perspective, that’s ​enough​ ​to​ ​power​ ​San​ ​Francisco​ ​for​ ​more​ ​than​ ​two​ ​years.

Nest’s next challenge…to​ ​make​ ​these​ ​energy​ ​savings​ ​available​ ​to​ ​more​ ​homes​ ​and​ ​more​ ​people. So​ ​they​ ​set​ ​out​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​simpler,​ ​more​ ​affordable​ ​thermostat.​ Meet​ ​the​ ​easy-to-use,​ ​energy-efficient,​ ​control-it-from-everywhere​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E.​ ​It’s​ ​for everyone.

Inspired, Thoughtful Design

New Nest E offers ​a​ ​friendlier,​ ​streamlined design​ ​that​ ​fits​ ​into​ ​any​ ​home. Instead​ ​of​ ​a​ ​bold​ ​design​ ​piece​ ​for​ ​your​ ​wall,​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​and​ ​its​ ​frosted​ ​display quietly​ ​blend​ ​into​ ​your​ ​home.​ ​This​ ​new​ ​display​ ​diffuses​ ​the​ ​light​ ​from​ ​the​ ​screen,​ ​so​ ​you​ ​see softly​ ​glowing​ ​text​ ​and​ ​graphics​ ​–​ ​along​ ​with​ ​a​ ​simplified​ ​interface​ ​–​ ​that​ ​are​ ​easy​ ​to​ ​read.​ ​And when​ ​it’s​ ​off,​ ​the​ ​frosted​ ​display​ ​takes​ ​on​ ​a​ ​glacier-gray​ ​color​ ​and​ ​fades​ ​into​ ​the​ ​background.

Inspired, Thoughtful Design

The​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​puts​ ​proven​ ​energy-saving​ ​features​ ​front​ ​and​ ​center.​ ​It’s​ ​ENERGY​ ​STAR​ certified,​ ​and​ ​it​ ​comes​ ​with​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​schedule​ ​so​ ​you​ ​can​ ​begin​ ​saving​ ​energy​ ​right​ ​out​ ​of​ ​the box.​ ​Like​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Learning​ ​Thermostat,​ ​it​ ​turns​ ​itself​ ​down​ ​when​ ​you’re​ ​away,​ ​so​ ​you​ ​don’t waste​ ​energy​ ​heating​ ​or​ ​cooling​ ​an​ ​empty​ ​home.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​control​ ​it​ ​from​ ​anywhere​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Nest app.​ ​Based​ ​on​ ​typical​ ​energy​ ​costs,​ ​we’ve​ ​estimated​ ​average​ ​savings​ ​of​ ​$131​ ​to​ ​$145​ ​a​ ​year, which​ ​is​ ​great​ ​for​ ​a​ ​thermostat​ ​with​ ​a​ ​suggested​ ​retail​ ​price​ ​of​ ​$169.*

More​ ​than​ ​half​ ​of​ ​U.S.​ ​households​ may be ​eligible​ ​for​ ​a​ ​rebate​ ​from​ ​one​ ​of​ ​our​ ​energy​ ​partners,​ ​so Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​can​ ​pay​ ​for​ ​itself​ ​even​ ​faster.​ ​(Check out the rebates programs with your utility company in your area).

The​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​looks​ ​very​ ​different​ ​from​ ​any​ ​thermostat​ ​they’ve​ ​made​ ​before.​ ​But​ ​what hasn’t​ ​changed​ ​are​ ​the​ ​core​ ​features​ ​that​ ​define​ ​a​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​–​ ​simplicity,​ ​energy​ ​savings and​ ​remote​ ​control.​ ​Now​ ​there’s​ ​a​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​that​ ​can​ ​fit​ ​into​ ​any​ ​home…something for EVERYONE!

Want to compare the new Nest E to the original Nest, visit https://nest.com/thermostats/compare/

* Independent​ ​studies​ ​showed​ ​that​ ​Nest​ ​saved​ ​people​ ​an​ ​average​ ​of​ ​10%​ ​to​ ​12%​ ​on​ ​heating​ ​and 15%​ ​on​ ​cooling.​ ​Based​ ​on​ ​typical​ ​energy​ ​costs,​ ​we’ve​ ​estimated​ ​average​ ​savings​ ​of​ ​$131​ ​to $145​ ​a​ ​year.​ ​That​ ​means​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​can​ ​pay​ ​for​ ​itself​ ​in​ ​under​ ​two​ ​years.​ ​Individual savings​ ​are​ ​not​ ​guaranteed.

Introducing the Honeywell Lyric™ C2 Wi-Fi Security Camera

Honeywell has released the Lyric C2 WiFi Security Camera to further expand the ability to monitor and automate a home from afar.

The Lyric C2s integrate with GoogleHome and are HomeKit compatible like many other Honeywell connected home products. Not only can you have security cameras watching over things, you can also configure sensors, water leak detectors, thermostats and other Honeywell connected devices to work alongside it to provide alarms when something wrong is detected.

The Lyric C2 WiFi Security Camera provides local storage (on an included 8GB SD card), free cloud storage, or an optional cloud storage upgrade, as well as optional professional monitoring. It installs quickly on a wall, tabletop or ceiling, and offers everything from ultra-wide-angle, 1080p viewing to sound analytics. Pair with the Lyric app to access live streaming for recorded events that will alert when something is seen or analyzed like a smoke/CO detector going off or even a baby crying, giving peace of mind to homeowners.

More Product Benefits Include:

  • Remote Self-Monitoring — Homeowners can keep a constant eye on their home, no matter where they are
  • High-Quality Viewing — Ultra-wide angle (145-degree), high-definition viewing (1080p HD)
  • On-Device & Cloud Storage — Clips are stored on the included 8 GB SD card. Plus, secure cloud storage of the past 24 hours is free
  • Easy, Flexible Installation — The camera can be mounted on a wall, table top, or ceiling, and installed quickly with the Honeywell Lyric app
  • Motion Detection With Audio Analytics — Intelligent sound detection identifies smoke and carbon monoxide alarms — and even a baby crying — and sends out real-time alerts
  • Automatic Privacy Mode — Using geofencing technology, the system can tell when homeowners are leaving the premises, and when the camera should go into recording mode
  • Detection Zones — Customers can set up to four detections zones for extra sensitivity or to ignore background motion like a ceiling fan
  • Two-Way Talk — Talk through the cameras when communication is necessary
  • Night Vision — Clear video footage throughout the day
  • HomeKit compatible
  • 5-Year Warranty

So how is this different than the newly released Honeywell Lyric C1 Security Cam? The Lyric C1 has a lot of the same features as the Lyric C2, but it’s a more pared-down version with a 135-degree field of view and just two detection zones.

To order the new Honeywell Lyric C2 Security Camera, call your Jackson Systems representative at 888-652-9663. We will soon be featuring it at our website for online ordering.

Is All Thermostat Wire the Same? Jackson Systems Answers That Question.

So, what can we say about thermostat wire other than, “it works like it supposed to…?” Well, a lot, actually.

Wiring zoning systems, thermostats or other HVAC components can be a dirty, tedious and complicated job. You’ll only want to do one time, which is why you should want your wire to be the best quality available.

Jackson Systems now sells premium Honeywell Genesis wiring!  When it comes to high-performance, low-voltage cable for your HVAC applications, Jackson Systems has you covered by providing cabling that not only works, but is of the best quality and dependability to provide results you (and your customers) can count on.

With Honeywell Genesis wire, you will enjoy these fine features:

  1. It is on a spool instead of in a box so it is easier to pull without knotting.
  2. It has marker numbers printed on the outer jacket indicating the length in feet so you can easily see how much you’ve used on a job…and how much is left on the spool.
  3. It strips easy because it comes with a pull string.
  4. It doesn’t stink…it has a pleasant odor.
  5. ENJOY HONEYWELL CONTRACTOR PRO POINTS WITH THE PURCHASE OF THIS WIRE!

In addition, Honeywell Genesis wire has great flexibility. You can run it from point A to point B quite easily. And, the wire can be joined using wire nuts, crimp connectors or screw terminals. Technicians know these can be big pluses, especially if you are working with wiring day in and day out.

So, the answer to the question “Is all thermostat wire the same?” is a resounding “No. It most definitely is not!” When it comes to the wiring of thermostat controls, zoning systems, heating and air conditioning equipment and other low voltage applications, there is no better wire than Honeywell Genesis.

Much like other Honeywell products, Honeywell Genesis Wire purchases qualify for Contractor Pro Points. Enjoy this bonus plus the convenience of one-stop shopping for all controls- related accessories at Jackson Systems. Here’s how you can order: https://jacksonsystems.com/category/thermostat-wire-2.html or call your Jackson Systems representative at 888-652-9663.
