ecobee's Smart Si thermostat with ZigBee Smart Energy Profile (SEP) is now compatible with Southern California Edison's (SCE) advanced metering infrastructure network.

According to ecobee, select SCE customers will now be able to connect Smart Si thermostats to their smart meters and make informed decisions about energy usage. As part of SCE's limited launch of residential demand-response-capable thermostats, the ecobee thermostat allows SCE to offer two-way communication to its customers and provides automated energy conservation.

“With thermostat and utility companies now working together to advance the smart grid, SCE is one utility provider paving the way,” comments Stuart Lombard, president and CEO of ecobee.
