"stuart lombardo" Discussed on Around the House with Eric G®

"Thanks for joining us today. Caroline and i have a great guest today. We got cory fox with echo kobe. Welcome to the house brother. Thank sir appreciate. Hey hey hey yeah. This is awesome. I'm familiar with your product. My last house. I took one other product. That i won't mention it out and put yours in because it was working well and your guises rocked it. It was awesome. We not not surprising. It's If i had more fingers and toes there are so many stories of folks that i have met over the years who have any go be It's really really interesting. And that spans the gamut from folks who work at utilities to homeowners to a lot of people who work in the trade so it's a really good product. What's let's reset the stage here for everybody out there. That goes watson e kobe because we all know what it is. But there's so many people out there that have that nineteen seventy two thermostat and they keep swiping it left and right to change the temperature and that's all it does and they have no idea what the rest of the world is like. Yeah no thanks for that tia. So e koby is a smart home company. They're headquartered out of toronto canada and the flagship product that will probably spend the majority of the time talking about today that most people are are familiar with with our brand is smart thermostat so backing We launched a under our spiritual leader. Stuart lombardo alar launch the first smart thermostat The company has scaled and grown significantly From them so that's what we are known for There's a lot of things that we do with the smart thermostat and then some of the products that we've come to market with over the years and for people who don't know what a smart thermostat is so a lot of people just have a traditional. Maybe they have honeywell right and it just tells them their traditional temperature and maybe relative humidity tell them how a smart thermostat can help them. What can this do for a homeowner. And why would they want one. Yes so really. Simply automates savings. So we're all busy with our lives. Even while a lot of us are fortunate enough to work from home during this really odd interesting time. it's technology that helps heating and cooling system in so if we peel back for a second The reason why. I joined echo b. n. y. A lot of the colleagues that i have joy nico bs because And this may sound a little bit Corny but we all want to do something good for the earth and it's a really fun band of characteristic and when stewart was looking to build a product he's a product engineer He spent some time thinking about how he could best help himself. The planet and find something good to do with this time and so as the story goes stewart was spending a holiday away from the house came back. He had done a setback on his old honeywell. I think is what it was Came back in the kids. Were all really upset angry because the thermostat had said that way to colt and so he said to his wife. There's gotta be a better way. There's got to be a better way that like the thermostat should know that we're pulling into the driveway and start to preview the house and so that is what he built. And that's really at the end of the day. What any sort of smart thermostat does is it. Leverages anything from weather. Data occupancy data comfort settings. I'm kind of meshes it all together and end automates. The savings of what is in most houses the number one usage of either electrical or some sort of fuel in the house. You start to peel back from that. The reason why. I joined in again. A lot of folks joined his that one. Little simple piece of technology At scale has profound impact on what we're sort of facing as a global economy in the need to reduce carbon. And so one of the most simple things that can happen is by just lowering your heating and cooling usage. And at times when you don't necessarily need it and that's what technology does and that's what smart thermostats do. That was a really long winded answer. I'm not sure if that's awesome. Here's the one thing i enjoyed about having it in my house and i don't have it in mind because i've got a new carrier system that has all the crazy computer stuff and with all those wild features that has its own kind of branded thermostat but long story short what. I enjoyed it my last house. Because i had a very simple heating cooling system. It was a it was a gas fired heater with a with air conditioner zone. And i had a upstairs in the downstairs. And i could put a sensor upstairs and i could tell what humidity and everything else was going on in the house and it gave me information. Yeah i was gonna say from an indoor air quality from an indoor air quality perspective right so as an indoor air quality consultant the biggest thing. I want people to look at is humidity level. because it's going to prevent dust mites. It's going to prevent mold so we're looking at not only energy savings right but hugely creating a healthy home environment by just putting a thermostat in that tells you relative humidity so to me. This is an easy thing to do. It makes sense from a money standpoint and then also from a health standpoint you're going to keep that relative humidity between thirty and fifty percent in home reducing bugs dust mites mold. So it's it's a win win on all counts. And i think they're fabulous and you may not even be aware of this speaking just for our brand. Some democrats have the ability to show. I want to be as friendly as possible to the world of oem's that are out there. Some things that have the ability to show relative humidity. But i'm not aware of any other brand that. Today is taking that data in really using it to better inform how that heating and cooling system operates so from what you just said we know. Comfort is impacted in there. We want the thirty to fifty percent for a lot of healthy reasons. But then maybe someday we wanted a little bit higher or a little bit lower depending on what the ambien is. What the wind speed Address and so actually maybe eighteen months ago. We echo be released. A firmware update called eagle plus echo plus is a lot of things. I'll just be really clear on that. It's a lot of things in. I'm not going to try to unpack all of them but one of the things or features that's in there is something that we used to call. Feels like we've had to move away from from from that Branding is still in the middle of rebranding what that is semantically called but it it optimizes around the comfort settings That it has learned from the users in that house and estimates the thermal profile of what needs to happen based on the humidity so it creates its own little humidity index. Humidex is actually what mike toronto colleagues call it in optimize that which is pretty significant when we start talking about.
