There's a new thermostat on the block and its name is EcoBee.
To be honest, it's not new. EcoBee has been around since 2007, right around the time that everything became “Smart”. However, EcoBee was pushed into a corner by both Nest and Honeywell Lyric. But we’re now in the era of the comeback. The Ecobee folks channeled their inner Cavs, Indians, and Patriots and ran down the competition to take their official place in the smart thermostat scene. And to jump ahead of the competition, they even went next level and added remote sensors.
Sure, smart thermostats are cool. They allow you to monitor and control your home's temperature from your smartphone, PC or tablet. But what they’re really great for is saving money. A small wireless sensor (included with the thermostat) is placed in the room that is too cold and the thermostat will keep the heat on until it senses that room has warmed up enough. There is an option of adding more sensors. It's a zone system for single units!
Recently, EcoBee teamed with Amazon Echo to create a match made in heaven for those who want to stay on the cutting edge. Now you can simply ask Alexa to adjust the temperature setting and instantly feel the room heat or cool to the perfect temperature. It just doesn't get any better than that!
