Compatibility and preference in thermostat choice

Will Keen vents work with my regular-old thermostat?

Yep! You won't need a new-fangled thermostat to start using our system right out of the box. The Keen Smart Vent System is designed to work alongside any kind of thermostat.

You'll set your thermostat to aim for your preferred temperature as normal. Meanwhile, you can adjust your Smart Vents to the openness percentage of your choosing, automate them on a timed schedule, or use our Temp Sensors to automate your vents via room temperature limits.

What about Smart Thermostats?

We do offer compatibility (and improved functionality!) with two major Smart Thermostats: the Nest and the ecobee.

Note:  Google recently made the decision to shut down the Works with Nest program and replace it with Works with Google Assistant. Unfortunately, this transition has not gone smoothly for Google Nest itself and many smart home company partners--Keen Home included.

Keen Home currently does not have a Works with Google Assistant integration with its products. If and when this functionality becomes available, we will make sure to notify you via our blog and mailing list.
