ecobee3 Thermostat Buyer's Guide

Guide to the ecobee3 Thermostat

As technology evolves, even the seemingly most basic aspects of our living spaces are becoming smarter, more efficient, and more convenient. Case in point – the ecobee3 HomeKit-Enabled thermostat.

With a typical thermostat, the temperature is read in just a single room (whichever room the thermostat happens to be in), and then the climate for the entire house is adjusted according to that reading. But what about the basement room that always seems too cold? Or the upstairs bedrooms that collect all the heat in the house? Doesn't it seem like there should be a thermostat regulating the temperature in each individual room?

With the ecobee3, maintaining a more comfortable climate throughout your home is a snap thanks to its remote sensors, which gather temperature data from different locations in your home then allows it to be adjusted from a single control station accordingly.

The Unrivaled Smarts of ecobee3

The ecobee3 thermostat knows intuitively whether it should be heating or cooling specific parts of your home based upon a combination of its unique energy profile and the weather outside. Simply put, ecobee3 ensures that you're comfortable at all time, no matter what's going on outside or which room you happen to be in.

What's more, ecobee3 automatically senses when someone is home, which rooms are being used, and when someone leaves. It then adjusts the temperature to suit the situation. This provides a number of benefits.

First off, it makes it easy to ensure that you stay comfortable. Forget about fine-tuning complicating programming options. Just let ecobee3 do all the work.

Second, and perhaps most important, ecobee3 helps reduce your energy usage dramatically. Homeowners who use ecobee3 report an average drop of 23% off their energy bills. That means more money in your pocket, and a hefty reduction in your environmental impact – you save money and the environment.

Going Remote with ecobee3

Another benefit to using ecobee3 involves its outstanding accessibility. Because it's compatible with Apple HomeKit, you can connect it to your home wi-fi then monitor and control your home climate remotely using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

That means you can have your home warm (or cool) and ready for your arrival before you walk through the door. It means that you can make sure that your pipes won't freeze while you're away, or that your pets won't end up overheating.

Basically, it means control and convenience.

What's more, the ecobee3 display features a full-color, LCD touchscreen with intuitive controls that are even easier to use than your smartphone. And its attractive, modern look fits great in any home.

Finally, ecobee has a highly trained and knowledgeable customer support team to ensure that you have all the help you need when it comes to using your new and improved thermostat.

The Bottom Line

In the end, the ecobee3 thermostat will make your home more comfortable, your life more convenient, and it will save you money while protecting the environment.

Simply put, the benefits far outweigh anything offered by an ordinary thermostat.
