Spotted by Zatz Not Funny!, the label sample submitted by ecobee to the FCC features a HomeKit code.
One would reasonably expect traditional connected camera capabilities such as motion detection and notifications, but the Alexa mics take ecobee to another level as a dual purpose device. And now, with HomeKit confirmed, functionality could be pushed over the top.
It's unclear if ecobee plans to support Apple's new HomeKit Secure Video but we're sure to learn more when the company announces the camera. Netatmo just announced support for the feature on its Smart Indoor Security Camera and we're likely to see more manufacturers adopt the Secure Video in the future.
