Some day we’ll look back fondly at 2016 and 2017 and recall the time period as the years Alexa began its ascent. That’s right, Alexa is well on its way to controlling anything and everything around us, and we couldn’t be happier. Amazon’s virtual personal assistant makes it remarkably easy to control all of the gadgets and gizmos around us, though Alexa integration is more useful on some devices than it is on others.

Our favorite thing to control with Alexa is a thermostat, because there’s something awesome about speaking a command and having it adjust the cooling or heating in your home. If you’re on the lookout for a smart thermostat that works with Alexa, you’ve come to the right place because we’ve listed our five favorite options right here — including one great model that costs less than $100!
