A Futuristic Solution for the Tallest Building in the World. In 2007, Jerry Drew, founder of Network Thermostat (NetX), suddenly began getting phone calls from people saying they were from Honeywell Middle East. Mystery surrounded thels: Honeywell wouldn’t tell them what the project was that they wanted to talk with him about but they needed more information on his line of networked thermostats.
