Ecobee smart thermostats come in a range of models designed with features to give you control over your home comfort from anywhere and help to save money on your energy bills. These models include the ecobee SmartThermostat with voice control and ecobee3 lite. Both come with several features that make your life easier. Here’s what to know about ecobee smart thermostats and how to get the most out of them.
Why Buy an ecobee?
An ecobee thermostat can save you around 23% on your annual energy costs compared to keeping your house at a constant 72 degrees. It learns the patterns of your home comfort behaviors and doesn’t heat or cool it as much when nobody is around. You can control an Ecobee with an iOS or Android device, and it’s compatible with Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, and IFTTT.
ecobee comes packaged with the company’s innovative SmartSensor, which senses both room temperature and occupancy levels. With SmartSensor, you can control your home’s thermostat based on a particular area. Or you can connect to multiple SmartSensors (sold separately)—one for each room if you like—and set an average temperature for your home, helping alleviate hot or cold spots.
Smart recovery is a learning algorithm that learns how long it takes your home to reach a desired temperature. By taking into account your AC system’s performance relative to the weather, Smart Recovery preemptively heats or cools your home. As you used your thermostat over time, it collects more and more data to keep improving this function.
This feature enables the ecobee to note the difference between the outdoor and indoor air in homes with ventilators. If it’s a cool summer evening, it will use outside air instead of air conditioning to cool your home.
