Ecobee adding built in Alexa to thermostat and more

Techstination feature for Monday, November 6, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.  A smart thermostat with Amazon’s Alexa build in.    Ecobee is the name of an innovative company that has been making smart thermostats with clever remote room temperature sensors for years.   And the new Ecobee 4…does even more…

“So you don’t need an Echo, you don’t need a Dot.  You can get almost the exact same functionality as you would on either of those devices.”   It will play music and things like that?  “It’s gonna play music.  It doesn’t at this moment work with Spotify but we are working on that.   But Amazon Music is going to be built in there.  You can have your playlist just like you would on any other Amazon device.”

Ecobee’s Kristen Johnson….who says coming next year….is the Ecobee Light Switch which will also include Amazon Alexa and serve as a temperature sensor as well.  You can find more at
