iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, or voice using Siri. The new Sensi
thermostats will build upon the brand’s legacy of connecting
precise temperature control and convenience to ensure the
highest level of home comfort.

we knew that our industry-leading position in HVAC controls,
combined with our expertise in system connectivity, would enable
us to develop a superior product,” said Robert T. Sharp,
executive president of Emerson Commercial and Residential
Solutions. “As we’ve continued to learn from our customers,
homeowners are gravitating toward simple smarthome solutions
that make life easier. Our latest Sensi thermostats combine
enhanced capabilities, including support for Apple HomeKit with
simple and secure controls, and a sleek new interface with a
proven home comfort experience that puts users firmly in control
of their environment, anytime and from anywhere.”.
