First time I am seeing them. Not sure I like what I see as there is no flood light or Echo compatibility. There is a massive battle going on for control of your front door with doorbells and security.  Ring, August and Nest are just a few of the big competitors.   I am not ready to pick a winner.  From a Shabbos perspective, motion sensing might be an issue on these so I will look into it and write about it as time permits.

So I have a very simple solution to automate your gas fireplace for Shabbos.  It is a slice of gan eden to have this on a cold Friday night. I write about it at my latest column at tribetechreview.wordpress.com.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments - Dov

My latest column highlights the fact that keeping an Echo or Google Home on in your home on Shabbos is problematic.  I have not found a rav that would permit it on in your home.  However, if it is in someone else's home and you are visiting in may not be an issue.  see tribetehreview.wordpress.com

@TribeTechReview   
You write:
When you use a third-party App like IFTTT to establish your schedule, Ecobee overrides the auto Home/Away feature until the next transition which, in my example, is scheduled for after Shabbos. Since this detail is critically important to avoiding the Shabbos issues, I also confirmed it with Ecobee support and tested the feature.

Is this true for "Follow Me" feature as well? Asking specifically about Ecobee 3 lite.
