There has been a huge boom in smart thermostat sales lately, and there’s one reason and one reason alone for all the new interest: Alexa. Amazon’s virtual personal assistant is all the rage right now, and for good reason. Alexa makes controlling all of your smart home gear fast and easy, and that obviously includes your thermostat. Of course, most Alexa-enabled smart thermostats are quite expensive, like the Google Nest and our favorite, the Ecobee3.
Well now you have a much, much cheaper option if you want a smart thermostat that will let you control your heating and air conditioning with your voice. Check out the iDevices Thermostat, which costs less than $100 and works with Alexa, Android phones and with Siri as well as Apple’s Home app.
Here are some key details from the product page:
- Customize the temperature of your home from anywhere with the iDevices Thermostat. Use Siri or Alexa voice commands and custom scenes (i.e. “Bedtime”) to make your home cozy when you’re there, and save money when you’re not.
