Home: Ecobee Thermostat

our old "harder to program" thermostat

programming the ecobee 3 on the app is simple

Normally I‘d never get excited and write about a thermostat, but the smart thermostats with built-in wifi made by Ecobee are special. They have so many great features:

  • They can be programmed using a smart phone app
  • They’re controlled by the app even if one isn’t at home. For example, if one goes on vacation and forgets to turn down the heater, one can use the app to do so
  • Ecobee 3 systems can be programmed to have the house at a certain temperature at a certain time (instead of the older thermostats which could only be programmed to turn on and off at certain times
  • They can have multiple sensors and a room can be programmed to have specific temperature
  • The Ecobee 3 can be voice controlled by the Amazon Echo (Alexa) system

All of this said, upgrading to an Ecobee thermostat was a good decision!
