Ecobee, makers of smart home appliances such as the smart Ecobee4 thermostat, today announced a flash sale for Amazon Alexa's fourth birthday. If you've already played with the idea of bringing your home into the 21st century, it's now a great time to make the leap: Alexa's integrated ecobee4 and Switch + light switches will be available on the Amazon and ecobee – but only for today – cheaper.
The ecobee4 can detect the temperature in several rooms and even determine which ones are occupied for efficient heating and cooling. There's even a mobile app that lets you control the temperature of your home while on the move.
The Switch + replaces a standard wall switch and makes your existing light bulbs smarter: the device automatically turns your lights on and off when you enter or leave a room. In combination with an ecobee4, the two work together to manage hot and cold areas in your home. In addition, both the ecobee4 and the Switch + are integrated into Alexa, so you can tell them to play music, retrieve messages, and even order food ̵
The ecobee4 usually costs $ 249, but you can get it today for $ 209; The Switch + can be yours for just $ 79 (regularly $ 99). Both products are discounted on ecobee and Amazon, and the sale ends tonight at 02:59 pm EST.
