Have you ever hopped into your car heading out of town, and thirty minutes down the road you wonder, “Did I remember to adjust the thermostat?”
There will soon be an app for that, at least if you have Ecobee’s thermostat and an iPhone.
Toronto-based Ecobee Inc., which has developed a cool-looking smart thermostat that connects to your home Wi-Fi network, will soon be launching a new application that lets a person control the thermostat from their iPhone wherever they happen to be. “Basically we have created an iPhone application that turns the iPhone into a thermostat replica,” a spokesperson told me.
Or also, if you happen to be sitting on the couch watching football and decide the house is a little warm, you can adjust the thermostat without having to get up.
