Ecobee right now introduced that its Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat and Ecobee Switch Plus light-weight change now operate with Alexa Bulletins. 

Bulletins is a new characteristic from Amazon that allows you send out a concept to each Alexa system in your house with a one voice command. Begin with ‘Alexa, broadcast,’ ‘Alexa, inform every person,’ or ‘Alexa, announce that’ to start off your personalized announcement. 

You could say, ‘Alexa, inform every person that it truly is bedtime’ or ‘Alexa, announce that dinner’s ready’ — genuinely anything at all you would say more than an intercom.

Dilemma is, this characteristic has been constrained to Amazon intelligent speakers, but now it is increasing to extra products, starting up with Ecobee.


The Ecobee4 is a $249 intelligent thermostat with a constructed-in Alexa speaker. It attained an Editors’ Choice Award for its extraordinary efficiency and unmatched functions in the related thermostat area. 

Ecobee’s Swap In addition is a hardwired light-weight change made to substitute an present wired change. At $100 for each change, the Swap In addition is a definite splurge. And, unlike Lutron’s Caseta Switches and Belkin’s WeMo Dimmer, the Swap In addition can not dim lights. 

As component of Thursday’s announcement on Bulletins, Ecobee explained its managing a sale on its own website for the Swap In addition, chopping the value by $20.

Alexa Bulletins are anticipated to operate with the Ecobee4 and the Ecobee Swap In addition right now by way of an update.
