Key Features of the Ecobee 4 Thermostat

Packaged with wireless remote sensors that can be placed around the house, The Ecoboee’s whole home sensing will allow you to enjoy more consistent temperature in every room. Select which sensors feed information back to the Ecobee and it will adjust your HVAC system to balance the climate based on the average temperature reading of each device. It undoubtedly works. It requires a little more effort at installation but if you place a high priority on getting a solid dose of the Winter comfies, this has to be one of the best products on the market. You also get a really solid piece of tech in terms of user-friendliness. Download the Ecobee mobile app (Android and iOS) to change your settings and adjust the temperature while on the move. Maybe you left the house in a scramble for your vacation. Select “vacation mode” on your app and Ecobee will lower the temperature so that the heating or air conditioning doesn’t run as frequently.

The weather impact algorithm uses this information to make smart decisions about when and how often your system should be running.
