Ecobee, the Canadian company that makes thermostats since 2007, has released a new thermostat which combines many of the features that should be found in a smart home. The new Ecobee thermostat costs $249 and it comes with an entirely new look, with the previous models being too data heavy and utilitarian. The new version looks modern and smart. And it’s both.
The new Ecobee thermostat has a 3.5 inch touch screen and it can connect to a Wi-Fi. It alos features a sensor that can be put in a room inside the house and it will send the temperature from that part of the house to the thermostat. It also gathers information about the exact location inside your house. This means that you will be more comfortable in your house, especially if you have a bedroom that gets cold at night. Or too hot. The new Ecobee thermostat actually memorizes the temperature you like and adjusts it based on where you are in the house. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
The new Ecobee thermostat comes with an additional sensor that costs $80 for a package of two. You can track the temperature and keep it at your favorite level depending on the weather.
With its new glossy look, a new app and some cool features, the new Ecobee thermostat could become people’s favorite in terms of smart devices for adjusting the temperature around the house.
The new Ecobee thermostat’s design replaces the previous model which is called the Smart Thermostat. Ecobee said that they are still selling the previous model, the less expensive $179 smart thermostat.
