If the Indian summer, or the summer of Saint-Martin, still allows us to live beautiful, soft and sunny days, the rigors of winter should unfortunately soon be felt, and with them, the traditional recovery. route of our heating installations thanks to our… connected thermostats!

This is why Les Alexiens decided to look into the hot topic of connected thermostats and present you several solutions that can make your life easier and, above all, save you money. Switching off the heating when it is no longer useful, adjusting the temperature by one degree, or even creating scenarios has never been easier! You just have to ask Alexa which today is able to communicate with many devices. Let's take stock of a few references that we have selected for this first file.

Sowee: station connected with Alexa integrated

This is probably the most complete equipment, on paper, of our selection: the Sowee connected station, an EDF subsidiary, presents itself as a real control center for your energy consumption (electricity and gas). Because, yes, this station allows you to manage your consumption of gas AND electricity thanks to an intelligent system of sensors to be placed directly on your meter. In theory, anyway.

Only integrated station / thermostat Amazon Alexa, it promises a sound part developed by the famous French company of Cabasse sound system. Sadly, it looks like she doesn't live up to her promises. Our attempt to test the Sowee station with Demooz ended in a bitter failure, we cannot recommend it enough with regard to user feedback, the majority of them having encountered difficulties with this product obviously still unsuccessful. last year.

In short, made in France with Alexa! Cocoricoooooooooo! Or not. Hopefully Sowee will review his copy and that we can revise our judgment soon. Because, for the moment, these stations are not good connected thermostats.

This station will allow you to:

  • Control your heating "Simply", as you wish with your finger or your voice, thanks to a thermostat and a heating schedule,

  • Measuring air quality in your home thanks to a diagnosis of your CO2 and humidity levels, in the form of information, advice, alerts in numbers and smileys,

  • Keep a direct eye on your gas and electricity consumption (when it works).

A disappointing product in its second generation, with a poor sound quality, and microphones that struggle to hear the controls Alexa. Since many users have trouble with it, we recommend that you exercise the utmost caution, or even avoid it altogether. Requires a Sowee subscription to benefit from consumption monitoring.

If it obviously tells you the temperature of your home, it can also measure humidity and detect movement as well as ambient light. Capable of learning and self-regulation, it records the changes you make to temperature during the day and then analyzes them at the end of the day in order to memorize your preferences and habits.

Finally, a skill allows you to control the thermostat by voice by asking for example Alexa :
- " Alexa, set the temperature in the dining room to 22 degrees. "
- " Alexa, raise the temperature of the parental room by 4 degrees. "
- " Alexa, lower the temperature in the living room. "
- " Alexa, what is the temperature in the room? "
- " Alexa, what is the temperature of the corridor? "

You can still find on the web the 2nd generation Nest thermostat at around € 130. An excellent deal knowing that it remains quite efficient and compatible with Alexa.

If you can still get the 2nd generation thermostat at a low price, the Nest Learning 3 offers a screen wider and better visibility. Thanks to the new functionality Farsight, its screen turns on automatically when the user enters the room, to display the temperature or time. the number of sensors has been increased, to allow the thermostat to learn even better the habits of the users and the properties of the home.
