Emerson’s new Sensi Touch Wi-Fi Thermostat—along with an updated version of the classic Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat—is now compatible with smarthome management platform Apple HomeKit, bringing simple and secure control using the Apple Home app on iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, or voice using Siri. The new Sensi thermostats will build upon the brand’s legacy of connecting precise temperature control and convenience to ensure the highest level of home comfort.
“When we introduced the Sensi thermostat just three years ago, we knew that our industry-leading position in HVAC controls, combined with our expertise in system connectivity, would enable us to develop a superior product,” said Robert T. Sharp, executive president of Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions. “As we’ve continued to learn from our customers, homeowners are gravitating toward simple smarthome solutions that make life easier. Our latest Sensi thermostats combine enhanced capabilities, including support for Apple HomeKit with simple and secure controls, and a sleek new interface with a proven home comfort experience that puts users firmly in control of their environment, anytime and from anywhere.”
The new Sensi Touch Wi-Fi Thermostat with color display and Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat both offer a new geofencing proximity detection feature and flexible scheduling options to achieve energy savings. Both thermostats use smart alerts to notify customers of extreme temperatures and humidity levels. The Sensi mobile app has also received extensive updates, including a dashboard with individual thermostat cards. This enhanced display provides multiple thermostat users an easy overview into their whole-home comfort settings.
In addition to the Apple HomeKit integration, both Sensi thermostats are compatible with smart home platforms Amazon Alexa and Wink.
