So, I'm not sure how much I would use the integration with the Amazon Echo, but it's cool to see it is an option:
"Amazon Echo can now control your Honeywell Total Connect Comfort Thermostat. Use Alexa, the voice service that powers Amazon Echo, to set the perfect temperature in your home by voice command. Simply say "Alexa, set my temperature to 72 degrees" and enjoy your home's comfort without having to lift a finger."Also, you can get a cheap refurbished Amazon Echo today from Woot.
