Google has previously blamed the outage on a server configuration bug.
The outage is likely related to an extreme heatwave earlier this month in California.
Honeywell said that the outage was not tied to a problem with its equipment, but said customers should expect to “have some downtime while we resolve the issue.”
“This outage is extremely unfortunate for all of our customers. It impacts our ability to deliver the high-quality service that our customers count on. The team has been working around the clock to restore services as quickly as possible,” said Honeywell CEO Michael Conner in a statement.
The outage is likely related to an extreme heatwave in California, since the company warned in its statement: “There is a possibility that this outage is related to an extreme heatwave that occurred in California last week.”
