Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 has just released a number of new features that help provide a dynamic user experience and help dealers stay competitive. Here’s just some of what you’ll find to make your job easier.

Total Connect 2.0

We’ve expanded our test drive demo to include iPad and Android devices.

Smart Scene Set-up
We’ve now included an intuitive wizard guide that guides the user through each step for setting up a scene. The new wizard makes scene creation much easier and provides a better user experience. I can tell you first hand, setting up scenes is very intuitive. It is much easier now to set up a scene through Honeywell Total Connect— and quick! I like the wizard so much, I’ve already asked my dealer for more z-wave devices (think upsell and RMR!)

Test Drive Demo and Tool Tips
We received a very positive response from dealers when we announced the test drive demo last year, which provides a simulated “live” experience right on a user’s iPhone– without the need for Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity. Now, we’ve expanded it to include iPad and Android devices. It also contains tool tips —informative pop-ups that accompany and explain each and every feature.  This is a fantastic way to showcase all the great features of Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 Remote Services. You can have your customers and prospects download the app to become more engaged about the platform offerings. You can also close down the tool tips if you want to provide the tutorial. It’s that simple.

Account Login with Touch ID
iOS Users can now enjoy the same benefits that Apple Touch ID offers when you log into the Honeywell Total Connect app. Touch ID is an easy, highly secure feature that uses customers’ fingerprints to act as their passcodes.

Some other new features include a color refresh which provides a subtle, yet lighter change that is more visually pleasing to the eye. Smart auto-syncing on Lynx Touch 7000/5200/5100 models where any panel changes are no longer prompted to do a manual sync– updates will automatically occur within seconds.

All these new features are part of our plan to help provide a better user experience for you and your customers. Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 Remote services is also offered in four languages: English, Latin American Spanish, French Canadian and Brazilian Portuguese. In the United States, we offer GPS Tracking Services for both vehicles and assets and video solution options globally. There are so many different service options to choose from to help increase your RMR.
