MILWAUKEE, Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls today announced that the highly anticipated GLAS smart thermostat is now available for online pre-order at glas.johnsoncontrols.com and Amazon.com.

Units will begin shipping on August 24, 2018, at which time e-commerce orders with select retail partners will commence as well. GLAS will initially be available for purchase at glas.johnsoncontrols.com, Amazon.com, Microsoft Store Online, as well as Microsoft brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S.

Johnson Controls GLAS® smart thermostat now available for pre-order
GLAS now works with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant in addition to Microsoft Cortana®, allowing users to control thermostat functions such as temperature changes with their voice using a smart device connected to each service, such as an Amazon Echo or Google Home speaker. Users can ask Alexa, the Google Assistant or Cortana to adjust the temperature, and the GLAS smart thermostat can be controlled hands-free. With these enhanced voice-control capabilities, GLAS creates a seamless experience communicating with a home.

Users can easily adjust, refine and redefine their space with simple voice control. Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana allow users to check for and audibly receive indoor and outdoor temperatures, set increases or decreases in thermostat temperature and obtain the current weather forecast, among other skills.

GLAS looks beautiful on any wall, and the installation process has been made simple. Before beginning, users can check if their existing HVAC configuration is compatible at glas.johnsoncontrols.com/compatibilitychecker. Then, consumers can find detailed instructional videos that take them through the complete process at glas.johnsoncontrols.com/install.

If they still need some assistance, they can also enter their zip code to find a local, prescreened home professional that can install it for them. And, Johnson Controls has partnered with HomeAdvisor—a digital marketplace that allows homeowners to match, research, and connect on-demand to the largest network of service professionals.

GLAS' beautiful design is matched by intuitive features that make a space comfortable

Designed by the same company that invented the room thermostat, GLAS leverages more than 135 years of insights in building control systems to create a thermostat with an efficient and modern perspective. It is the first smart thermostat of its kind to utilize a translucent OLED touchscreen display to control its functions. Users simply touch the screen to change the temperature, monitor indoor and outdoor air quality, track energy savings or perform other functions.

GLAS also tracks and assesses multiple aspects of air quality to ensure that occupants are consistently comfortable, knowing that a healthy home starts with the air its residents breathe. In addition to temperature, GLAS reports humidity, total volatile organic compounds (tVOCs) and equivalent carbon dioxide (eCO2) inside a home or building. When air quality falls below moderate levels, GLAS can intelligently operate a fan or ventilation equipment.

CatNet SystemsBy leveraging Johnson Controls' deep experience in automation and proprietary temperature control algorithms, GLAS adapts to a user's schedule to intuitively maintain a comfortable space while it saves energy. Its automation programming is easy to understand and takes the hassle out of setting individual preferences. And, GLAS provides around-the-clock reporting of equipment run-time, a related seven-day trailing report of a user's energy savings and customizable, seven-day scheduling.
