Apple now selling Ecobee3 alongside Nest ahead of Homekit debut
Ahead of the launch of HomeKit devices, Apple has started selling the Ecobee3 smart thermostat in its online and physical stores. The Ecobee3 will share shelf space at Apple with the competing Google-owned Nest Learning Thermostat, showing Apple is starting to expand the category with more products. The thermostat retails for $249.95.
Unlike other smart thermostat, the Ecobee3 could be paired with up to 32 wireless sensors to detect temperature readings in different rooms so that the thermostat could adjust the temperature accordingly.
Like Nest, Ecobee3 can be paired with a smartphone for temperature adjustments that way.
At its retail price, Ecobee3 is the same price as Nest. If you're curious about the Ecobee3, be sure to check out our hands-on at Connectedly.
