The shift towards the connected home amongst consumers weighs heavily on smartphone integration, which the Netatmo wireless thermostat does in an interesting way.
Coming in five color variations, the Netatmo thermostat can be controlled via a smartphone, laptop or tablet to help increase the precision of the device by incorporating existing technology in the home.
Although the device can be controlled from the unit itself, the Netatmo thermostat pushes users to other devices to offer enhanced functionality, statistics and other benefits. This shift in the consumer electronics market toward Internet of Things (IOT) devices that push for smartphone integration are transforming consumer perceptions. Being that the devices often require other technology to operate to their maximum capacity, the market is evolving to favor technology add-ons rather than standalone products.
