Smart thermostat delivers comfort in rooms that matter most
A single dumb thermostat is only as smart as the room it's in. A new smart thermostat is designed to control temperature in the rooms that are the most important to the homeowner.
At the 2016 AHR Expo, Stuart Lombard, president and CEO of ecobee, discussed the launch of the ecobee3, the first smart thermostat to support Apple HomeKit. Available at Apple Stores across North America, the ecobee3 uses remote sensors to deliver comfort in the rooms that matter most.
“We’re excited for Apple customers to get their hands on the first smart thermostat that supports HomeKit,” Lombard said. “The new ecobee3 plays an integral role in the connected and energy-efficient home by allowing users to remotely control temperature in the rooms that matter most with simple commands using Siri.”
Designed for homes with more than one room, the ecobee3 smarter Wi-Fi thermostat and remote sensors measure temperature and occupancy in multiple locations, resulting in increased comfort when you’re home and energy savings when you’re away. The sleek and functional ecobee3 addresses hot and cold spots in the home and conserves energy to deliver savings immediately after installation. The ecobee3 saves homeowners an average of 23 percent on their heating and cooling bills.
HomeKit allows users to communicate with and control connected accessories in their home. It enables them to discover HomeKit accessories, configure them and create actions to control their devices. Users can group actions together and trigger them using Siri. HomeKit is built on a secure foundation with end-to-end encryption which provides customers a secure connection between their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and HomeKit-enabled accessory.
