The software giant unveiled the new GLAS thermostat in a YouTubevideo today.
Neither Microsoft nor Johnson Controls said whether the thermostat will be sold to consumers in the United Kingdom or U.S., or how much it will cost.
YouTube comments are typically a cesspool of internet trolls hating the world, but take some time to look at the comments under this video, as they're nearly universally in love with this device. GLAS would be the first thermostat to be powered by Cortana, featuring voice controls and sensors created to save energy by monitoring and altering the temperature when you're both away or in the room.
It runs on the Windows 10 Core IoT operating system and will also be the world's very first Cortana-powered thermostat. "Heating and cooling account for roughly 48% of the energy use in a typical US home, making it the largest energy expense for most families".
All the same, it could certainly be exciting to have another smart thermostat on the market, especially one that's voice activated. In commercial buildings, heating and cooling account for 40% of energy usage.
Microsoft's thermostat is also able to detect if there are people in its surroundings, and it uses this information to operate heating and air control systems in an efficient manner. "In addition to the local user experiences, the Azure IoT backbone enables data centralization, deeper analysis, and remote device control". This prompts to adjust its settings accordingly and is a great way to save money on energy bills.
Sadly, neither Microsoft nor Johnson Controls has released the most important details of the device: Pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
Microsoft Corporation is trying hard to make its thermostat enter the smart home appliances market.
The GLAS thermostat could signal more joint ventures involving Microsoft's voice-assistant Cortana.
