Today is the perfect day to finally embrace smart home devices and take advantage of all the benefits they have to offer. And when it comes to the ecobee4 Smart Thermostat, those benefits are plentiful. The main one is fairly obvious: you can save a ton of money on your energy bills. But the convenience features are fantastic too, and it has support for built-in hands-free Alexa voice control! The ecobee4 is a tremendous value at $250, but it’s on sale right now on Amazon for just $189.

Here’s some additional info from the product page:

  • SAVE MONEY: Homeowners save up to 23% annually on heating or cooling costs, plus ecobee pays for itself in under 2 years (compared to a hold of 72 degrees).
  • ROOM SENSORS: Place them in the rooms that matter the most and have the temperature balanced throughout your whole home. Measuring both occupancy and temperature, sensors signal your ecobee Smart Thermostat to automatically switch to the right mode for comfort when you’re home or for savings when you’re not. One Room Sensor included, 2-pack sold separately
  • EASILY INSTALL YOURSELF: It only takes about 30 minutes, thanks to an easy to follow installation guide and an in-app step-by-step walkthrough. Everything you need comes in the box, including a Power Extender Kit for homes with no common wire (C-wire).
  • CONTROL FROM ANYWHERE: Easily adjust your thermostat from wherever you are using your iOS (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch) or Android device. The ecobee mobile app is available in the App Store or on Google Play.
  • BUILT-IN ALEXA: Control your thermostat using your voice with built-in Alexa. Ask to play music, hear the news, set a timer, adjust the temperature, and so much more.
