ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control to Become the First Thermostat with Apple’s Siri
TORONTO – June 7, 2021 – Today at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple announced ecobee’s SmartThermostat with voice control will become one of the first third-party devices, and the first smart thermostat, to include Apple’s virtual assistant Siri.
Later this year, customers with a new or existing ecobee SmartThermostat with voice control and an Apple HomePod or HomePod mini can enable Siri and activate its help with a simple “Hey Siri”. The new Siri integration will offer ecobee customers more choice and Apple users a seamless experience in their homes.
“We’re excited to integrate Siri into ecobee’s SmartThermostat with voice control and offer Apple customers a more seamless experience throughout the home. With every advancement to our products, we hope to make our customers’ lives better, with devices that bring even more convenience to each day. Today’s announcement brings that promise to life by opening up new ways for our customers to interact with our SmartThermostat using Siri,” said Stuart Lombard, ecobee Founder and CEO.
