Move aside Wemo, you might be dethroned for being the smartest light switch on smart home automation market.
The contender? It’s ecobee’s newest smart light, the ecobee Switch+. It’s a total standout because — drum roll, please — Alexa lives inside it.
Yes, this smart light has Amazon’s Alexa built in its core. It’s the first of its kind.
You no longer need a hub. Or Echo. Your ecobee light switch can do smart stuff on its own.
- Come home to a lit house at night
- Ask your light for the news, the traffic, or your flight info
- Automatically switches off when no one is in the room
- Ask it to play the music for you
- Request for it to get a recipe for you
Switch+ readily works with smart home brands you already use and love like: Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, SmartThings, IFTTT, and Alexa (of course).
Though it’ll be weird talking to a light bulb, there’s no denying that this light bulb is lit.
The Switch+ is ready for pre-order for only $99 and will be arriving on March 26.
