Crestron Introduces Powerful Design-Forward Smart Thermostat

If the batteries are dead, nothing can control a smart thermostat. With a high-resolution touchscreen display, the new Crestron Horizon® Thermostat brings premier aesthetics to a simple two-wire retrofit design.

Rockleigh, New Jersey – April 12, 2021, 9:00 am ET – Crestron, the global leader in home automation, today announces the launch of the Horizon® Thermostat, a gorgeous touch screen smart thermostat that ends the dreaded replaceable battery design for a simple two-wire install into any thermostat location. Never wake up to a dead thermostat again – the Horizon Thermostat provides reliable control of the temperature and humidity throughout an entire home for a more refined, convenient, and always-working home environment.

Learning thermostats set the bar for design for homeowners, but then fall short meeting control and functionality expectations. Unlike other smart thermostats on the market today, the Horizon Thermostat is a design-first device that can react to dynamic routines in response to data from onboard temperature, humidity, and proximity sensors. When integrated with the Crestron Home™ platform, Horizon Thermostats act in concert with other smart devices like lighting and shading to ensure optimal comfort, convenience, and energy savings.

With a high-resolution 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen display and an auto-adjustable backlight that toggles between day and night mode depending on time of day or user preferences, the Horizon Thermostat is a professional grade device with a luxurious and intuitive aesthetic. The product measures a trim 124mm wide by 89mm high and is available in Horizon white, black, or almond finishes to match décor. The RGB-backlit accent and status lightbar complements the display while the ambient light and proximity sensors ensure the thermostat is always discreet, but visible when you need it.

“While traditional smart thermostats often force homeowners and installers to choose between aesthetics, control, and functionality, the Horizon Thermostat was designed to deliver all three as the first smart thermostat that can effortlessly meet the needs of designers, integrators, and consumers alike,” said John Clancy, Executive Vice President, Residential, for Crestron. “Crestron has a legacy of designing and manufacturing products that are built to last. The Horizon Thermostat is no exception, offering the powerful Crestron backbone of control that we stand behind and support end-to-end.”

The Horizon Thermostat complements the popular Crestron Horizon dimmers, switches, keypads, and receptacles. Featuring an ultra-slim, 14mm profile that rests nearly flush against the wall thanks to its battery-free design, the Horizon Thermostat connects with just two wires and seamlessly pairs with home Wi-Fi® networks. While ideal for new builds, the Horizon Thermostat also supports retrofit applications with no common wire when paired with the Crestron Common Wire Adapter accessory, sold separately.

The Horizon Thermostat is now available for pre-order for an MSRP of $599.
