#thermostat Comcast has added some new energy focused services to its digital home product Xfinity Home, highlighting a new way to make homes more efficient: buy it from your cable company. Comcast Xfinity Home now includes a smart thermostat service called EcoSaver.
Comcast’s new EcoSaver smart thermostat service is powered by Bay Area startup EcoFactor. Customers who sign up for the thermostat service get one of the Xfinity connected thermostats — from device makers like Radio Thermostat of America and CentraLite — and the EcoFactor software learns the home’s heating and cooling patterns and incrementally shaves off energy consumption. Comcast is offering Xfinity Home Control service starting at only $9.95 per month. A "starter pack" of Xfinity Home Control monitoring equipment is available starting at $99.95.
