Alexa-integrated Smart Thermostats aren’t really new. Nest, Sensi, Honeywell and Insteon all have smart thermostats that can be controlled via voice. However, voice control is through a separate Alexa Device unlike this #1 New Release from Ecobee.
Introducing, the Ecobee4 Alexa-Enabled Thermostat with Sensor that is now available for Pre-Order at $249.00.
Ecobee4 is so much more than just a smart thermostat. It’s equipped with built-in microphones with far-field voice recognition to understand all your commands.
Basically, you don’t have to own an Echo or other Alexa-enabled device to tell Ecobee to adjust the temperature, read the news, set alarms and more. Of course it comes with a speaker too – engineered for clear sound and full sound.
One of the reviewers said that it’s great for streaming audio. Whoever thought that a thermostat would one day play music? Cool.
Just like its older sibling, the Ecobee3, it also comes with a room sensor to help you manage hot and cold spots in your home and keeps energy use low when you’re not home. Ecobee guarantees an average of 23% savings on your annual heating and cooling costs.
Pre-order now before its release on May 15th!
