Leak suggests Ecobee’s coming into the video doorbell house



Ecobee, an organization finest identified for its line of sensible thermostats, could also be engaged on a video doorbell. A leaked picture from ZatzNotFunny exhibits what appears like an Ecobee-branded video doorbell with rounded corners and a button outlined in blue.

As famous by ZatzNotFunny, the doorbell encompasses a inexperienced mild standing mild, in addition to two small holes, one among which might be a microphone, positioned immediately beneath the digital camera. Its general design appears to glean components from present doorbells in the marketplace, equivalent to the brilliant blue mild utilized by the Amazon-owned Ring and Blink, and the rounded edges featured on Arlo and Nest units.

However apart from this one image, we don’t know a lot else concerning the system, together with whether or not it will likely be wired or battery-powered. The doorbell will doubtless assist Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant, although. Ecobee’s present line of sensible thermostats, and sensible safety cameras already include integrations for all three methods (and extra).
