Microsoft unveils pre-order information on the Windows 10 GLAS thermostat

Microsoft unveils pre-order information on the Windows 10 GLAS thermostat”

"Because GLAS is powered by Windows 10 IoT Core and Azure IoT, the smart thermostat keeps getting better by delivering the latest feature and security software updates". You can control the temperature, check the weather, monitor both indoor and outdoor air quality and more.

If you're a fan of minimalist devices, you might be interested in Microsoft's upcoming Cortana-powered thermostat.

A couple of months, we learned Johnson Controls had teamed up with Microsoft to create the GLAS, an interesting room thermostat featuring Cortana.

With Cortana, you can change the temperature, mode, and state, along with get a report on the current temperature and air quality. It also can detect when users are home or in the office and adjust settings to insure energy efficiency. Cortana will also be able to give traffic, weather, timer, calendar, reminders, and lists.

GLAS pre-orders start this March for $319, you can pre-order one for yourself here. Aside from voice controls, you can also use a mobile application. That's a steep price even in the context of smart thermostats from rivals like the Nest Learning thermostat, which costs $249/£279 (around AU$317), but in this case looks are every bit as part of the appeal as function. It appears the thermostat will be available in the US, UK and Australia. Made by Johnson Controls, the thermostat is a pane of translucent OLED touchscreen mounted on the wall, though your fingers aren't required when it comes to setting the temperature.

Johnson Controls hasn't provided a specific release date for the product, only saying that it will be available for pre-order in March and will be available in the first quarter of 2018, for $319.
