Affordable Tech Product Review: The Ecobee

We have been living in a tech-savvy world. It seems like each year, there are new technological advances in every way, shape, and form. And not only is it one product, but it's also thousands! This makes choosing (and trusting) a product more difficult, as you don't know where to even begin on your tech hunt. We're here to make things a little easier for you. Whether it's suggestions or reviews, we want to make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. For this post, we will be discussing a smart thermostat that might be worth considering (especially since it's an affordable option). Here's what you should know about the Ecobee.

What is the Ecobee?

The Ecobee is a "smart thermostat premium" that not only saves energy but also monitors air quality and provides tons of security. It's a great universal hub for your home!

The details of the Ecobee

This smart thermostat premium has a lot of features you should take into consideration, so let's break it down for you.

The temperature features

The Ecobee is a smart thermostat, meaning it supports one or two-stage heating and cooling equipment, which allows you to get the level of comfort you like while lowering energy use. It also learns your home's heating and cooling patterns as well as learns how long it takes to reach your preferred temperatures. For example, if you wake up at a specific time in the morning, the Smart Recovery feature begins heating and cooling your home in advance so it’s comfortable when you wake up.

Furthermore, the Ecobee has a thermal protect feature, which prevents your HVAC system from excessive runtime, and uses your air conditioner to lower or regulate the indoor humidity. The fan will run automatically after a cycle to get the most out of your heating, cooling, and dehumidification. If you already have an air conditioner, the Ecobee will use outside air to cool down your home instead when it recognizes the signs of a summer evening temperature drop.

With these smart thermostat features, you can save up to 26%* annually on heating and cooling. You’ll also get monthly energy reports that show you how much you’ve saved so you can learn how to save even more.

Air quality

This smart thermostat can also monitor indoor air quality and will notify you with any alerts and tips, such as when the air quality is poor, and offer advice on how you can improve it. Plus, you'll receive air filter change reminders so you never forget!


Why not get a thermostat that can also protect your home? With Ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium, you will also get built-in smoke alarm detection, advanced sensor technology that alerts you of any problems when you’re not home, and freeze detection to prevent burst pipes.

Smart Speaker

Ecobee allows you to create smart speakers with your choice of Siri or Alexa. You'll be able to two-way talk with your thermostat and ask it questions about the indoor temperature, and outside weather, and even play your music!

Overall review

This eco-friendly smart thermostat helps meet all of your home needs under one device. Its new and improved style allows for a 50% larger touch screen and its radar technology now covers a larger range with wider angles for improved occupancy sensing and security. You'll be living clean and smart, and will even save money in the long run. Oh, and not to mention, all of these features for the price of $249.
