Honeywell Total Connect On the Go Smart Control: New Apps, Beta and More

Mathew Stastny by Mathew Stastny | 06.29.2017

The Honeywell Total Connect team continues to work on the redesign of our iOS App, as well as continuing development for our Android beta app and HTML5 beta website. With the open beta program, we have released features over time and listened to the feedback from our early adopters to provide even more benefits. We’re excited to offer our customers a new web and mobile app experience as this development provides a common user interface across iOS, Android and HTML5, helping customers to transition seamlessly from one platform to another.

New iOS App – Available Soon

The sleeker and more modern interface that we will introduce with the upcoming version of our iOS app is designed to bring a more contemporary app to the hands of our users. We’ve integrated various user experience improvements that include:

  • An automated prompt for users to rate the app and provide feedback
  • Faster connection and immediate delivery of updated information
  • Feature parity and experience consistency between an iPhone and an iPad

Look for app updates in the Apple App Store and update the app when it’s available to enjoy this new design.

Android Beta App

Since our release in January, we have provided new features each month. Phases released so far and ones forthcoming include:

  • Security, events, settings
  • Push notifications
  • Geofencing arming reminders
  • SkyBell compatibility
  • Control of Z-Wave devices
  • Ability to schedule Z-Wave thermostats

Users may also leverage Android features like Fingerprint Login and Voice Commands.

Once the beta development is fully completed with all the same features on Android as currently available on iOS and more, the existing Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 Android app will be officially discontinued, and the new Android beta app will replace it on the Google Play store. We expect the beta program to run through Q3 2017. If you are not involved in our beta program or want more information, visit the Android beta tab in the Honeywell Total Connect Dealer Toolkit.

HTML5 Beta Site

The new HTML5 beta site features the same look and feel that we are rolling out across the Honeywell Total Connect platform.  This allows for a mobile-friendly web browsing experience, providing users of other mobile operating systems access to the same great features from our iOS and Android apps.  Forgot your smartphone? No problem.  You can also log in from any standard web browser on a desktop device.

Since our release in January, we have provided new features each month. Phases released so far and ones forthcoming include:

  • Security, events and account settings
  • User management
  • Control of Z-Wave devices
  • Notifications and event management
  • Play legacy video camera events
  • Play Skybell video events
  • GPS tracking services
  • Create, edit and run scenes

The HTML5 beta website automatically updates as new rounds of development are completed. Upon the user’s first login of any release update, a “What’s New” page will be displayed outlining the new features being delivered. If you are not involved in our beta program or want more information, visit the HTML5 beta tab in the Honeywell Total Connect Dealer Toolkit.

These new updates continue Honeywell’s commitment to offering market leading mobile security solutions across all major platforms. Whether you use Honeywell Total Connect on iOS, Android or HTML5, please let us know what you think of the enhancements through the feedback form in the new apps and new HTML5 website.
