Can you control the iDevices thermostat from the face of the thermostat itself, without HomeKit or your iPhone?

One of the attractive features of the iDevices switches, as well as the Philips Hue light bulbs, is that you can override HomeKit (and your iPhone) at the wall. Sometimes it is more expedient to be able to control a device at the wall rather than get your phone out and fumble through the apps to accomplish what you want to do.

Although I like to have control of the thermostat through my iPhone, my wife doesn't own an iPhone, and so she likes to be able to control things the old fashioned way. In my view, allowing override control through the face of the thermostat itself offers the best of both worlds.
