The Ecobee3 Lite is a decent smart thermostat that costs less than most


But depending on your home's layout, you may miss the remote sensor support.

Your home's layout and size will ultimately guide you to decide which device will serve you best. Larger multifloor homes may be better served with the Ecobee3, while smaller abodes could get by with the Ecobee3 Lite. Either one is simple to use and...

Ecobee3 Smart WiFi Thermostat


The Ecobee3 is a stylish Wi-Fi thermostat that you can control from anywhere, and it uses remote sensors to control the temperature of multiple rooms in your house.

Easy to install and configure. Android, iOS, and Web browser support. Remote sensors. Sleek design

Temperature slider can be tricky. Cannot monitor remote room temperature

When you think of digital home thermostats, the Nest Learning Thermostat is probably the first product that comes to mind. But before Nest burst onto the scene in 2011, Canadian-based Ecobee had already introduced a smart thermostat two years earlier....

ecobee3 HomeKit Enabled Review


The ecobee3's user interface and remote sensors have no equal among digital thermostats. The remote sensors wirelessly communicate with the central unit and have the ability to track what is going on in each room and area of your house. There are a...

The ecobee3 comes with a remote sensor that improves energy management.

This programmable thermostat does not have live chat support.

With remote sensors and a central user interface, the ecobee3 does things better than most smart thermostats. Its smart auto-adjustment function also makes it easy on the environment.

Since moving through the somewhat painful process of hooking up Toronto-based ecobee's latest thermostat, the ecobee3, to my rental condo's air conditioner and furnace, I've been astounded by how much money the Wi-Fi enabled device has managed to save...

Replaced two Nest thermostats with Ecobee3. Much better thermostat.


I used to have two Nest thermostats in our house. Unfortunately Nest is very limited in the support it provides for humidifiers and I have two. The Ecobee can control them either via relay or via 24V signal. One of my humidifiers needed 24 volt and the...

Best Smart Thermostat on the Market


I'm just so impressed with every facet of this product. My house is about 3400 sq. ft. with 2 levels + a finished basement. Even with another competitors smart thermostat, temperatures on the different floors were all over the place. We used to set the...

The Next Generation


Ecobee3 is simply the next generation of thermostats. No more "stupid" dial on the wall, but not an interactive, intuitive piece of sophisticated technology to support heating and cooling of your home. We have a 1600 sqr ft, single story home in the...
