Honeywell Prestige 2.0 thermostats which directly connect to the internet?

Do you know if there are any Honeywell Prestige 2.0 thermostats which directly connect to the internet or do they all require the RedLINK Internet Gateway?

Thank you!

The Honeywell TH9320WF5003/U is their WiFi model and will not require an internet gateway.

Thank you!

I looked at that model - the problem is I have a Honeywell TrueSteam Humidifier in my system and the TH9320WF5003/U does not allow true control of the humidifier. You can with some creative wiring get the humidifier to turn on with the furnace but you need a separate control to manage the humidifier. The Prestige Thermostats allow me to control the humidifier and through the EIM as well as add in additional sensors. I was just hoping there was one with the wifi built in.

The Honeywell website claims that the Prestige 2.0 has wifi but I can find nothing in the documentation which supports this.

From the Honeywell Page:
"Prestige« 2.0 Comfort System - Connects to the Internet, displays Outdoor Conditions and offers Portable Comfort Control"

Prestige 2.0« | 7-Day Programmable Thermostat | Prestige┬« Comfort System

The R in the middle of the model number indicates it is part of the Redlink line. The Redlink line requires an internet gateway for internet control.

Their WiFi stat does not require a gateway but it does not offer as many options as the Redlink line.

Thanks again! So it looks like (despite the Honeywell online literature) that none of the Prestige RedLink models (even the new ones) have built in internet access, thus forcing the purchase of the Internet Gateway.

You would assume that Honeywell's 'premier line' would have this especially with Nest and all the rest of the other competitors. Oh well.
