Wyze is running late, having already announced a $ 30 video doorbell and a $ 50 set of ANC headphones. Now the company is back with more, and today it opens pre-orders for its thermostat at $ 50. It is almost a third of the price of the cheapest thermostats Nest and Ecobee.
The Wyze thermostat will operate with 24-volt systems, such as forced air, hydronic, heat pump (including dual fuels), oil, gas and electrical plumbing systems. It uses the standard power cord, and Wyze will include a C adapter cable if your system does not have one.
To keep costs down, you will not find a touch screen on the smart thermostat. Instead, you control it with a knob on the thermostat, with the Wyze app or via Google Assistant and Alexa integrations. You can set schedules and the thermostat will notice when you are away.
Although it is not clear if the Wyze Thermostat will be integrated with Wyze sensors to start, the company promises that a learning mode will come. Just like the Nest Learning Thermostat, the idea is that the Wyze Thermostat will track your habits and adjust accordingly.
You can pre-order the Wyze Thermostat today for $ 49.99 from the company website.
