RESUMED SHIPPING TO CANADAWe are shipping again to Canada!  Canada Post and the CUPW tentatively and mutually agreed NOT to strike or impose a lockout while negotiations continue.  This is great news although we wish they would come to an agreement already and get it over with, our Canadian friends are the only ones suffering after all!

 

We heard that there was an 80% reduction in mail deliveries over the past few days since the 72 hour notice was given, originally ending on Friday, July 8th.  Happy to see they have removed the deadline today.

HA World does a tremendous amount of shipping to Canada so this has affected us as well since we decided to shut down our Canadian shipping while the strike/lockout was still a possibility.  But, as of 12:00 Noon MST today, Monday July 11th, we are now open for shipping in all storefronts offering international shipping – the main store at www.Shop.HaWorldOnline and on Amazon.ca.

We thank our Canadian customers for their patience, and are looking forward to once again serving your Home Automation needs!

Thank you for letting us, “automate YOUR world”

CentraLites new 3-Series Temperature and Humidity sensor can make your smart thermostat even smarter. Sensitive to 0.1-degrees C, the Temperature & Humidity Sensor provides the information that helps your heating and cooling system run more efficiently and keep your home more comfortable. This often results in cooler or warmer temperatures in your primary living spaces.

By placing the 3-Series Temperature & Humidity Sensor in your bedroom, your ZigBee-enabled thermostat can keep that room at the temperature you specify instead of a hallway or living room where the thermostat is installed.
