“Auras” are small iBeacons that will soon become an addition to the EverSense smart thermostat. It will allow iBeacons to ‘sense’ nearby iOS devices and adjust the room temperature accordingly. After the setup, the house owner will be able to control any room temperature with an Aura by entering that room.

Thermostats are normally placed in hallways and similar places. The temperature in out of the way places such as hallway is often different from the temperature in other rooms. A temperature in the kitchen is very different from the temperature in the living room or hallway. With Aura, EverSense takes care of this problem. The user can add more Aura iBeacon sensors any time. Since they use NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy, they can last about two years.

iBeacons can be any small devices with Bluetooth, or iOS devices. They allow businesses to send any type of information to iOS devices near an iBeacon. Apple is currently using the iBeacons to send to their customers in-store notifications. MLB, Macy’s and InMarket are also using iBeacons, and CES is using them for the scavenger hunt event.

EverSense expects the new Aura iBeacon to be available to the owners of their thermostats sometime this year.
