ecobee Brings Voice Control To Every Room With ecobee Switch+

ecobee, Inc. today launched its smart light switch, the ecobee Switch+, delivering on its vision for invisibly integrated voice assistance in every room of the home. With built-in far-field voice technology and the Alexa Voice Service, ecobee Switch+ offers customers easy and effortless access to information, entertainment and intuitive control.


The company expects ecobee Switch+, introduced today during the South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference in Austin, Texas, to propel the smart home industry into a whole home voice future, bringing the power of ecobee to every room and allowing customers to experience a smart home that can listen, learn and respond to their needs. ecobee Switch+ will cost $99 (USD) in the U.S. and $119 (CAD) in Canada and is available for online pre-order starting March 13, 2018 and in stores March 26, 2018.

ecobee Switch+ can bring voice into any room and is far more than a traditional light switch; it is the first available light switch to come equipped with built-in Amazon Alexa and a suite of smart features. ecobee Switch+ also lets you rely on motion and daylight sensors or a mobile device for smarter lighting control. Plus, when paired with an ecobee thermostat, the smart light switch will function as a room sensor to manage hot or cold spots. Together, an ecobee thermostat and ecobee Switch+ offer a seamless solution that makes for an unmatched, better home experience. The room sensor feature will be available later in 2018 via a software update.

Like all ecobee products, ecobee Switch+ will integrate with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, the Google Assistant, SmartThings and IFTTT. ecobee remains committed to integrating with multiple smart home ecosystems, empowering customers to control their devices using the service that meets their specific needs.

ecobee Switch+ will retail for a suggested price of $99 (USD) in the U.S and $119 (CAD) in Canada.
