We won’t beat around the bush: if you want the best Alexa-enabled smart thermostat that money can buy, you want the Ecobee3 Thermostat with Sensor. Yes, we know the Nest is the smart thermostat that started it all, and yes, we know there’s an Ecobee4 in the works. The Ecobee3 looks and performs better than the Nest in our opinion, however. And as for the Ecobee4, it has a few improvements but nothing Earth shattering. Instead of waiting for the 4 and spending more money, do yourself a favor and snag an Ecobee3 on Amazon at its sale price.
Here are some key details from the product page:
- Works with Amazon Alexa for voice control (Alexa device sold separately)
- 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 (*Learn more at ecobee.com/savings)
- Homekit-enabled Ecobee3 – the world’s first homekit-enabled smart thermostat – is an evolution of our previous Ecobee3 smarter wi-fi thermostat.
