For a while, Honeywell's range of smart thermostats was pretty limited in the UK. While the evoHome Controller certainly held its own against rival devices like Google's Nest and Tado, the company decided to bring its Single Zone Connected Thermostat to UK shores last week, and is now ready to let Brits control their heating using only their voice. The aptly-named Voice Controlled Thermostat basically acts like Google Now for your boiler; you get its attention by saying "Hello, thermostat," and then issue commands to make it warmer/cooler or change the temperature by a set number of degrees. Like Honeywell's other controllers, the Voice Controller Thermostat also comes with a companion app, allowing you to program the heating remotely and save energy while you're out the house. If you fancy some hands-free heating, Honeywell's new thermostat is now available for £229 from its wide network of official UK suppliers.
