This device is able to adjust room temperature by means of the smart thermostat Nest. Besides, the tracker can switch on/off such smart lamps as Stack Lighting, WeMo Smart LED Bulb and Osram LIGHTIFY.
This activity tracker has much more features. In addition to usual calories and steps counting, the device is also able to:
manage smart Lutron Serena curtains;
supervise the work of light bulbs and thermostats that are compatible with Wink router designed specifically for device connectivity to the Internet of Things;
connect to Logitech Harmony to control your TV, sound system, lighting and thermostats that are integrated in the Logitech Harmony remote control.
This gadget is connected to IFTTT network and therefore can interact with a large number of smart devices. Just few examples:
- The gadget automatically turns on/off Philips Hue smart lamps.
- Adjusts the work of ecobee thermostat.
- Manages Mr. Coffee smart coffeemaker.
- As in the case with Jawbone UP3, integrates with the Logitech Harmony remote control.
Moreover, the user can adjust specific "behavior" settings of the gadget. For example, you can ask Fitbit to automatically turn on the lights after waking up in the morning or turn off the TV if you suddenly fell asleep.
