Calling the new platform “smart that makes a difference”, ecobee Inc. has announced Haven, an intelligent home monitoring platform that eliminates the need for keypads, programming and single-use devices. With the touch of a button, ecobee users can upgrade their SmartThermostat and SmartSensors into a frictionless solution. To further extend the capabilities of ecobee Haven throughout the home, the company also announced two exciting additions to the company’s hardware portfolio; the new ecobee SmartCamera with voice control, and the new ecobee SmartSensors for doors and windows. The robust new lineup offers ecobee users an accessible, affordable and versatile solution flexible enough to meet the ever-changing needs of people, families and homes.
“We saw tens of thousands of customers using ecobee SmartSensors and solutions like IFTTT to basically hack together security systems, and knew what we had to do next,” said Stuart Lombard, Founder and CEO of ecobee. “Haven not only offers a greater sense of awareness, context and control, but also brings peace of mind back to the forefront of the smart home. As a company, we go where our customers need us to go, and are thrilled to introduce thoughtful technology that can help families navigate the chaos of everyday life today, and for years to come.”
In parallel with the introduction of Haven and the new hardware products, ecobee has also developed a new visual representation of the brand that leans into its iconic squircle shape and planet positive origins. Similar to the new platform and hardware, the newly refreshed ecobee brand, complete with a refined logo, remains radically simple while providing a seamlessly intuitive experience. Above all, the brand and product portfolio continue to underscore the company’s commitment to creating a more sustainable world by improving everyday life.
With the introduction of the Haven platform supported by new hardware – including the new SmartCamera with voice control and SmartSensors for doors and windows – ecobee has designed a new way for your home to start taking care of you, and not the other way around. Instead of adding more devices and tasks to those ever-expanding to-do lists, ecobee Haven delivers peace of mind through a simple, plug-and-play platform centered around fewer devices that do a lot more, with no professional installation required.
“ecobee Haven was designed for people at home, on-the-go and every moment in between, and we’ve seen incredible ways to leverage the platform we never could have imagined,” said Casey McKinnon, Vice President, Product at ecobee. “During our field trials, we saw many parents checking in on kids in the playroom from their new home offices, keeping a closer eye on elderly loved ones remotely, and even healthcare professionals testing usability in hospitals to minimize exposure. We’re thrilled with the many ways our customers are already utilizing our new home monitoring platform and are excited to see where we can take it from here.”
