How-To Celebrate Earth Day

Today more than one billion people around the world will take part in the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day. As communities come together to learn about helping the planet, you should feel confident that you have the potential to help the Earth every day. How? With the Connected Home offerings from Honeywell. Whether you are a fan of the LYNX Touch 5100 or the Tuxedo Touch, these two products let your customers control lighting and thermostats to help save energy and save them money at the same time.

Of the total energy consumed in America, about 39% is used to generate electricity. This means electricity consumption is a significant part of a consumer’s environmental footprint. The  LYNX Touch 5100 and the Tuxedo Touch offer energy-saving features by automating lights and thermostats.

To help ensure that your customers use these earth-friendly features, we’ve produced a series of how-to videos that explain step-by-step how to do everything from turning off a light to setting back the thermostat. In the LYNX video below, the user learns how to create a home automation schedule based on time and day. Share it with a customer on a call or better yet, put it on your website.  And there are seven more videos in the playlist that easily explain other features.
