Ecobee has announced plans to bring Alexa and far-field voice recognition to every room of the home through a voice-enabled smart light switch.

This product will mark the company’s first venture beyond smart thermostats and is expected to lead the smart home category into a whole-home-voice future. Similar to ecobee’s signature room sensor technology, the smart light switch will measure occupancy and temperature to help deliver comfort in the rooms that matter most.

“We are committed to building technology that makes customers’ lives simpler and better. Technology that allows our customers to focus on the things that matter – their families and moments they share. The voice-enabled ecobee4 smart thermostat and smart light switch bring that promise to life,” said ecobee President and CEO Stuart Lombard. “More than just individual products, ecobee4 and the smart light switch work together to provide better comfort and savings, while allowing customers to ask for almost anything from anywhere in their home.”

“Today’s announcement is our first step towards delivering a whole-home-voice experience for customers, and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Lombard. “In our 10th year as a company, we are still committed to purpose-driven innovation that re-imagines the home – now with the ecobee4 and later this year with the smart light switch. These innovations give customers the ability to be more comfortable, have more control and save money – all while doing right by our planet, something we’re incredibly proud of.”

When we were kids my little brother rigged up a system of pulleys and fishing line that ran from his light switch to his bed. He pulled one line to turn the light on, another to turn it off. He's an aerospace engineer now. That system will only work with certain types of light switches. Depending on what type of lighting you have in your room, you could buy a device such as The Clapper and connect your light to it. Then all you'd have to do would be clap your hands to turn the light on and off. That will only work with lamps, though, and will not work with a light mounted directly into the ceiling. However, if you have a bedside lamp it would work with that. pay for assignment | Assignmentdoeruk
