Insteon has been a leader in the smart home market since… well… since the smart home market first came to be. The company is known for its no-frills gadgets that are simple, sleek, and above all reliable. Enter the Alexa-enabled Insteon Thermostat, which looks just like any other unassuming thermostat. Unlike the old box on your wall now, however, this thermostat can be controlled by Alexa.
If you want something fancy and trendy, the Nest Learning Thermostat is a terrific option. It also costs nearly $250. If you’d rather save some money but still be able to control your heating and air conditioning with Alexa skills, check out the Insteon Thermostat, which is just $75 right now on Amazon.
