Tech Industry
Speaker 1: Your echo device, it's your HVAC system. And there's a product that can be a big part of the solution, smart thermostats, but not everybody has them for two main reasons. First they're just too complicated. And second they're too expensive. Let me introduce you to the new Amazon smart thermostat, a smart energy star certified thermostat that works with Alexa. This device gives customers a simple way to keep their homes comfortable. And most [00:00:30] importantly, energy efficient. We took the complexity out of the product by making it simple and compatible. But how did we do that? We did it by partnering with the experts at Honeywell home that bring their 130 years of experience to this product. As a result, it works with most existing HVAC systems. Secondly, there's no reason smart thermostat should be expensive. We rethought the device, invented a way to make it [00:01:00] available to customers for just $59. Speaker 1: That's less than half the average cost of a smart thermostat sold on amazon.com. After utility rebates, most customers can get an Amazon smart thermostat for just $10 and sometimes for nothing at all this thermostat lets Alexa intelligence do the programming for you automatically. It adjusting the temperature to suit your preferences. When it has hunch you're either home or away. [00:01:30] You could also set up a routine. When you say, Hey Alexa, goodnight, the device will turn down the heat or turn up the cooling to match your preferences. It's this intelligence and the affordable thermostat is just one of the ways that Amazon is trying to help customers live more sustainably. Amazon smart thermostat is a perfect example of why we're so passionate about the promise of ambient computing. When technology is working hard behind the scenes, it can be absolutely transformational. [00:02:00] As we work towards this vision of ambient intelligence. We know there's so much.
