The Google-owned Nest Thermostat was a trend-setter and it’s definitely a fantastic product. You can see right here that it has a 4.5-star rating from more than 3,100 customer reviews. The device set the standard for smart home thermostats that adjust your heating and cooling intelligently in order to keep you comfortable and save you money.
As great as the Nest is though, it’s actually not the best-selling smart thermostat on Amazon. That title goes to the ecobee3 Smarter Wi-Fi Thermostat with Remote Sensor, which offers even smarter features than Google’s Nest. In fact, you can even control the ecobee3 with Alexa on the Amazon Echo!
Here are some key details:
- Smart, really smart – intuitively understands when to turn on your heating or cooling equipment based on your home’s unique energy profile, the weather outside, and thousands of other data points to make sure you’re comfortable at all times
- Knows you have a life – senses whether anyone’s home and which rooms are occupied, delivering comfort when you’re at home and saving you energy and money when you’re not
- Lowers your energy bills – ecobee saves homeowners an average of 23% annually, paying for itself in energy savings
- Homekit-enabled Ecobee3 – the world’s first homekit-enabled smart thermostat – is an evolution of our previous Ecobee3 smarter wi-fi thermostat.
- Works with Amazon Echo
And last but not least, it’s a little cheaper than the Nest as well.
