Microsoft shares pre-order details for the $319 Cortana thermostat

Here’s what the stunning Cortana-powered GLAS thermostat will cost you

Johnson Controls and Microsoft have teamed up to build a attractive smart thermostat called GLAS. There's "arrival anticipation" to bring the house up to temperature or cool it before you get home, and pre-starting of heating and cooling to reach the right temperature by the scheduled time.

The GLAS smart thermostat powered by Microsoft's Cortana. Android and iOS apps are available now with a Windows 10 app coming soon. Once it knows your settings and routines, it will know when you're home and change the temperature accordingly, which is meant to save on energy, and of course, the money that the user spends on that energy. It'll also give energy saving reports for the past week. If you are across the room and snug in a warm blanket and you want the heat turned down, you can say "Hey Cortana, set the temperature to 68-degrees". It's also possible to turn the fans on and off by voice. "Cortana can help you manage your calendar, inform you of traffic, answer questions, and more, so all of this information is on display in one place to help jumpstart your day before leaving the door", Microsoft explained. Up to 20 thermostats can be installed in a single location.

Sensex, Nifty End in Green After Falling Following SC Judges Press Conference
At 3:30 pm: The Indian equity indices gained lost ground after falling following the Supreme Court judges press conference. Notable losers were TCS 1.27 per cent, Bharti Airtel 0.82 per cent and Wipro 0.45 per cent.

And then there's the design of GLAS. The thermostat comes equipped with a translucent touchscreen.

Unlike the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker which is powered by a customized version of Linux, GLAS runs Windows 10 IoT Core. It'll be compatible with gas, oil, and electric heating, along with ground-, air-, and water-source heat pumps, and has dual-fuel support for heat pumps. The product will also be available for pre-order in March 2018 for $319, but you can sign up now to receive a notification when the product becomes available on the product's website. It's priced at $319.
