This smart home device was first unveiled past year and it features a translucent touchscreen display. You can control the temperature, check the weather, monitor both indoor and outdoor air quality and more.

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

And Ecobee4 has brought Amazon's Alexa to the smart thermostat arena at a price of $249 which beats the $319 price tag GLAS will have when it's available for preorder in March. Unfortunately, Cortana still can't differentiate between devices, so it's entirely likely that when you say the above statement, your thermostat will adjust the temperature, but your Invoke will say something about how it can't do that.
