Simple with Siri
Along with interacting with the thermostat through Siri, you can use the companion app on an iPhone, iPad, or even the Apple Watch.
With HomeKit, you can control the device with the new Home app is iOS 10 or even with just a simple Siri command. It can also be controlled with an Amazon
The thermostat itself sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen. It’s basically an old-school iPhone mounted to the wall. The UI is simple and easy to use and should be obvious to pretty much anyone who has ever used a smartphone. The main screen shows your home’s current temperature, the thermostat’s setting, and a slider for adjustment. The display is always on and will show your home’s temperature and the weather outside when not being used.
Along with being able to schedule your home’s air conditioning or heating to turn on and off at a specific time, the thermostat can be used with remote sensors. One is included with the thermostat. Each sensor acts as a small temperature reporting station in your house and can also detect any motion. That’s a great way to help keep your house comfortable while saving energy, and cash.
You can also snag a pack with the thermostat and three sensors for just $252.44.
