In February, American Standard launches American Standard Home, a smart home integration platform that offers advanced HVAC system control and diagnostic features. Formerly Nexia™, the new integrated app will continue to give homeowners a secure, convenient method to manage their indoor comfort through a connected experience, while HVAC professionals can ensure their customers’ HVAC systems are optimized for performance.
American Standard Home integrates with several smart home platforms, including major voice control platforms, Google Home and Amazon Alexa, and is compatible with hundreds of Z-Wave devices. The most common use is connecting an American Standard smart thermostat to remotely update temperatures, apply a schedule, and automate the home comfort experience.
“As we look at the time we’ve spent indoors over the last several months, we know how important it is for our HVAC systems to create comfortable living spaces, while providing the convenience homeowners crave,” says Mel Fox, Senior Product Manager – Trane Technologies. “Innovative, user-friendly and practical, American Standard Home provides a seamless integrated experience for our connected homeowners.”
With homeowner consent, American Standard Home’s sister platform, American Standard Diagnostics, provides HVAC dealers with real-time alerts, remote access to update a homeowner’s system, and historical data to help extend the life of the HVAC system, resulting in a reliable homeowner experience. The American Standard Diagnostics platform prevents minor maintenance issues from turning into major repairs.
The American Standard Home app will be available for download from any smart phone, tablet, or computer through the App Store and Google Play.
