Ecobee may develop a new smart thermostat that monitors air quality

Tech Highlights:

  • Also unearthed in the update were descriptions such as “keep your home’s air clean with your SmartThermostat’s built-in air quality sensor” and “your sensor is calibrating your home”. The SmartThermostat’s air quality sensor would likely be used to trigger other smart home devices such as air purifiers or fans. Alternatively, the gadget might be able to trigger notifications to your smartphone to warn you of poor air quality. Ecobee has not officially announced a new SmartThermostat, so there is no release timeline for the potential new product.

  • Following the discovery of secret images and descriptions in a recent app update, rumours that Ecobee would develop a successor to the SmartThermostat have began to circulate. The rumoured new device could have characteristics similar to the current smart thermostat, but with the added ability to activate air purifiers or fans when bad air quality is detected. Ecobee may be working on a new smart thermostat with an integrated air quality sensor. The current version of the Ecobee iOS app, according to MacRumors contributor Steve Moser, features a hidden image of a SmartThermostat with an air quality measurement on the display.

The current Ecobee SmartThermostat comes with a separate SmartSensor that you can use to detect room occupancy and alter the temperature automatically, such as switching the heating on when it senses a person in the vicinity. Ecobee’s SmartThermostat has built-in Amazon Alexa and supports Apple HomeKit; plus, the device gained Siri compatibility last year. The company claims that the current thermostat can save you up to 26% on your annual energy bills. The Ecobee SmartThermostat is currently selling for the discounted price of US$199 on Amazon, a saving of US$50.
