Editorial Review

The matte-black Ecobee promises "23% average annual savings" as algorithms attune the smart thermostat's temperature levels to the household preferences. The device is as attractive as one might expect from a product earning the Apple seal of approval, and its Homekit-enabled status allows iPhone users to regulate their home temperatures via Siri.

The Ecobee is part of the Internet of Things (or IoT). If you know anyone with an MBA who was an eye towards the tech sector, you've doubtlessly seen this phrase peppered liberally throughout whatever social media feed said biz junkie prefers. For a brief history on the technology behind the buzzword, check out this timeline.

For those uninterested in such background info but still uncertain about the meaning of "IoT", it basically refers to the growing presence of products that are newly equipped with internet connectivity.

The tech giants, namely Apple and Google, have been competing heavily to prop up fully connected environments through each of their respective operating systems. Toronto-based Ecobee allied themselves with team Apple, and their sleekly-designed Ecobee3 (and appropriately "Apple-ified" luxury packaging) thermostat raced past longtime thermostat manufacturer Honeywell's Evohome, and competed strongly with Google's market-leading acquisition, Nest.

I wouldn't believe it if I didn't experience it, but it paid for itself in two months and our house is so much more comfortable than it ever was before.

It's been nearly a year since I bought it. It does make my home more comfortable. The remote sensors are great. It's so nice to see what the temp is in each room...

Nice thermostat. Very easy to install and has been working great... The app works great. I've accessed it a dozen times and have experienced no issues with it.

Love the flexibility in how it can be configured and programmed to sense motion and react to temperatures in rooms that previously were difficult to get to the desired temp...

So far the ecobee3 has been great. The ability to control the setting from my phone is very convenient.
