What thermostats are compatible with HomeKit?

There are several brands that have included Home app and HomeKit standard support in their smart thermostat ranges. HomeKit Thermostats are available from ecobee, Netatmo, Emerson, and Honeywell.

Is Nest Thermostat HomeKit compatible?

The Nest Thermostat doesn't officially support HomeKit. However, thanks to the new Matter smart home standard, it can be used with your Apple Home ecosystem just like any other HomeKit device. The Nest Smart Thermostat from 2020 was upgraded with Matter support in April, 2023. 

Is Ecobee HomeKit compatible?

Yes, nearly all ecobee thermostats work with HomeKit except some of the earliest ecobee3 thermostats. 

The ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium combines HomeKit with intelligent home and room monitoring, allowing the thermostat to adjust automatically to the temperature in the rooms you care about the most. This thermostat is straightforward to install, so you can experience HomeKit bliss without calling an electrician. It even acts as a Siri and Alexa voice assistant thanks to an onboard microphone and speaker.

Are you looking for an option that puts design at the forefront? Then check out the Lux Kono, which offers nine styles and colors and a paintable faceplate that can blend in with your decor. Or, if you prefer a thermostat and room sensor combo without a built-in microphone, the Honeywell Home T9 may be the one for you.

Will the best HomeKit thermostats be reduced over Black Friday?

It's very likely that some of these will — we're hoping for some big discounts so that getting one in your home is a little cheaper than it might have otherwise been.
