This is Ecobee’s new glass-covered smart thermostat

It seems that Ecobee can not keep its smart house secrets, seeing how its next indoor video camera, its intriguing contact sensor and its new premium thermostat were detailed by Dave Zatz of ZatzNotFunny in the past couple of months. But now, hardware vendor Lowe's apparently has asked Zatz to keep his beer – by publishing a full page of the product for the new Ecobee Smart Thermostat with voice control on the web.

The page, discovered by one of Zatz's tipers, leaves little to the imagination, detailing virtually every new feature to be expected.

In addition to the glass-coated touch screen (instead of the plastic) revealed above and the "SmartSensor" included with magnetic base, the new unit is now compatible with 5GHz Wi-Fi networks, Bluetooth, several advanced calling features from Amazon Alexa to complement its -in the voice assistant, and the ability to act as a speaker for your Spotify music. (However, we will have to see if it is better than the Ecobee4 as a musical speaker.)

Interestingly, it seems that Ecobee may be abandoning its numbering scheme, since this is simply an "Ecobee Smart Thermostat" instead of an Ecobee5 or Ecobee4 +. If so, it is similar to Nest, which is currently in the third generation of its Nest Learning thermostat. And if the prices on Lowe's website in Canada are correct, its price will also be similar to that of Nest: $ 329 CAD. It is probably intentional now that the Ecobee device has a more premium version, although these days you can find both the current Ecobee4 as the third generation Nest for a little less in the United States, since both are for sale for years. 19659005] We will let you know how much the new Ecobee will cost in the United States and when it will be available when it is officially announced.
