Microsoft Partner On Smart ‘GLAS’ Thermostat

X

Microsoft have continued to grow their hardware offering, announcing a new smart Cortana-enabled Thermostat called GLAS.

Built by Johnson Controls, the thermostat will run on Microsoft’s Windows 10 IoT Core operating system and will come with Cortana voice services built into it.

“Utilizing Windows 10 IoT Core, Cortana voice services, and Azure Cloud, GLAS is a simple to use, elegant thermostat that brings leading energy savings and air quality monitoring to everyday spaces. Johnson Controls is reinventing the thermostat and our lives,” the company says.

The company previously announced a move into the smart speaker space with the Harmon-made Invoke speaker.

Given the nature of the Australian market, it’s unlikely that the GLAS Thermostat will make its way across the Pacific Ocean.

However, it does suggest that Microsoft is serious about building up a smart and connected home ecosystem around Cortana – even if its something they’re approaching through partnerships rather than their building themselves.
