Honeywell wants to let you control your connected devices through a connected device with an update to its current line of evohome Smart Zoning Thermostats adding support for the Pebble. Pebble owners will be able to use their smartwatch as a control unit for their entire evohome system through a new watch app, which connects to Honeywell's app on both iOS and Android.

Unlike Honeywell's Lyric smart thermostat, the evohome system uses individual, remote control radiator valves to control heat in each room, rather than a master thermostat. You can turn the whole system on and off using just the Pebble, as well as the valves in specific rooms. Details of each room, or zone, can be displayed on the watch, including both the current and target temperatures.

The evohome Pebble app is currently available through the Pebble appstore under the name evohome watchapp.
