    I purchased the new ecobee smart thermostat with voice because I’m one of those that likes the latest technology.Honestly I’ve not noticed a lot of obvious difference yet between my ecobee 4 & the new one. The old sensors work fine with it & are very easy IMO to migrate over. The new sensor is much different to install & stumped us for a bit because it doesn’t install at all like old sensors. You use the app to install new ones & the thermostat is used for sync of old ones.I did have one room that frequently temporarily lost connection due to distance I assume. Only been a short time but no loss of connectivity yet with new smart sensor.The thermostat is fairly easy to install & ecobee has great tech support so far. This thermostat can setup more automatic like the nest but also has a lot of manual configuration if you want it. I chose manual due to my system being duel fuel but since we have natural gas we prefer to bypass heat pump usage. This is simple with Nest but more complicated with Ecobee. I had to contact support for help on bypassing the heat pump. They were great!The stats data is awesome & much more detailed than Nest stats. Ecobee has detailed run times for stages, fan, heat, cool, aux, etc. Also has humidity, sensor, weather impact etc. I’ve not gotten past a full calendar month so I don’t have the advanced stats yet.The thermostat isn’t ugly IMO as some say. It is much easier to access functions than the Nest IMO though. It has a full color touch screen that is very responsive. All functions are accessible on the thermostat while everything but installation settings are available on web portal & iOS app. Sorry I haven’t tried Android yet.Background for why I chose Ecobee Smart Thermostat w voiceI’ve been a Nest user since beginning but due to no new innovations & Google threatening the eco system as well as I had to have entire HVAC duct system changed out & redesigned. I decided to give the Ecobee-4 a try about 3 weeks ago because new system design had one thermostat for over 3000 sq’. I felt like the remote sensors would be a good virtual zone system to balance rooms if needed.I had ecobee-4 & 10 sensors, I was quite impressed with how well it worked until I received notice of new Ecobee Smart Thermostat with voice control.The Nest just didn’t have the ability to create a virtual zoned system with its attempt at sensors. Also I prefer my Amazon eco system over Google’s ecosystem because amazing works better with my home automation.

    Before I ordered this item I did some research and my choices at that time or between the ecobee and the nest. However after talking to the HVAC representative from my local air-conditioning repair company I was advised that they strongly recommended I go with the ecobee and not the Nest. In fact I was told they advise their customers against using the nest product. I did not install this myself I paid a licensed AC person to install it when I had my inside central heating and air AC unit replaced. And thus far it is working perfectly. It is fairly easy to operate after registering it online and you can control it either or manually in the hallway where we have it located or through the app you can download to your phone. Or login to their website. I am very happy with my purchase thus far and I noted that it was recommended by critics who is reports I had read online before my purchase.

    I’m a chemical process control engineer with over 40 years of industrial experience and am not easily impressed with control devices as I’ve been dealing with process control computers and microcomputers since they were invented. However this smart thermostat has really impressed me with its rich set of features, options and ease of use! I installed it in my home to control a single stage split system 3.5 ton heat pump with air handler installed inside the house. I also recommended that this thermostat be purchased for my church to control a single stage split system 10 ton heat pump with air handler installed outside the church. I installed this thermostat in my church with some minor wiring assistance from a HVAC contractor since this system was more complex. Note: I also purchased extra remote sensors for both my house and my church: there are a total of 6 sensors in my house and 8 sensors in my church.Features that really impressed me: “Smart Recovery” i.e., the thermostat learns how long it takes the HVAC system to reach a new target setpoint and optionally turns on the cooling or heating units before the next scheduled setpoint change; “virtual zones”, i.e. the smart temperature and motion detection sensors can be used to set up measurement zones in the building so that the controlled temperature is an average of sensors that can be selected for each configured scheduled activity; “Follow Me” mode so that the sensor motion detectors are used to determine which sensors are used to calculate the system average controlled temperature; the full range of system installation options and thresholds, including compensation for the temp. and humidity readings in the thermostat (I purchased from Amazon a portable temp. & hygrometer instrument that I used to calibrate these measurements); the humidity control capability, i.e. being able to set a high humidity target so that the thermostat turns on the cooling unit to lower the humidity; and the very useful and informative system monitoring and performance reports, including the ability to export performance data to a .csv file.I’ve contacted ecobee Technical Support both by phone and email several times for assistance and to help resolve issues. Phone support was very helpful and immediate, i.e. I waited less than 2 minutes before I was connected with a capable CSR who assisted me to resolve the issue quickly. Email support reply time averaged 2-4 days which was acceptable for my purposes since the issues with which I was dealing were not urgent. Note: one of the issues that I reported was that the System “Off” state did not function as I had expected due to my misinterpretation of the ecobee definition of System “Off”. Further clarification: if the option to run the fan only for the configured minutes per hour is selected, then the fan will be turned on for that configured time even if the System is set to the “Off” state. I suggested to Technical Support that this design feature be documented in the Help screens and elsewhere if necessary because I think that this feature may be misunderstood by others as well.The only enhancement request I can think of at this moment is to be able to compensate each remote temperature sensor reading so that these measurements can be calibrated; not just the temperature sensor that is installed inside the thermostat itself.I highly recommend this smart thermostat to anyone who desires to keep building occupants more comfortable, as well as to optimize energy usage and monitor system performance in incredible detail!!

    I have an older home with a Goodman split AC unit. The old thermostat didn’t have a C wire installed, but the provision was there in the wire harness. I thought that I might have to install the PEK unit, but after a little research on my air handler unit, and I located the C terminal on the air handler control board. I ran the spare blue wire in the thermostat harness to the C terminal on the air handler, and the other end to the C terminal on the ecobee. Viola! It all works flawlessly. If you take your time and research your system, install is simple.

    WOW!!! I am huge Ecobee fan and have had the Ecobee 4 and I also own 3 of the Ecobee Switches. I decided to trade up my Ecobee 4 for the All anew Ecobee Smart Thermostat and couldn’t be happier. First off the installation was a piece of cake. As usual Ecobee gives great instructions and I was up and running in no time. The immediate changes I noticed from the Ecobee 4 to the New Ecobee is the screen. The new screen is glass and has a beautiful vivid touch display and gives it a high end look. I also noticed the speaker design was a touch different which helps with sound quality when using Alexa. Also the thermostat components are better using a quad core processor. The Alexa Integration got even better. You can now Bluetooth directly to the Ecobee to stream and play music. It also allows for Alexa calling , weather , music and more. It also allows for direct control of Spotify with Spotify connect and of course it utilizes Alexa far-field voice which works great if you own multiple Alexa devices. Alexa works perfectly on the Ecobee and honestly even better then some of the other devices I own that offer Alexa control. The speaker is clear and crisp and it sounds great when playing music. The other big change was the Ecobee remote sensor. The New Remote Sensor is more streamlined , it’s beautifully designed, a touch smaller and has a very cool magnetic mount. The new sensor also has a better field of view, can work further away then older sensors and has optimal motion sensing which gives it enhanced wide-angle detection and a battery life of five years. I was also able to use to my older Ecobee Remote sensors on the New Ecobee Smart Thermostat which was a huge plus since I own 6 of them. So far I am extremely happy and everything is working great. I feel like the New Ecobee seems to be working better too and temps seem more regulated in my home. Also the New Ecobee Thermostat integrates with all your smart home systems like Google assistant , SmartThings, IFTTT, Apple HomeKit and of course Amazon Alexa. I have personally tried all these integrations and they performing perfectly so far. I am someone that likes to do my research when I buy something so if you’re looking for a smart thermostat stop looking and grab the New Ecobee Smart Thermostat you won’t be disappointed it just works!! I am very anxious to see what’s to come from Ecobee in the future. Thanks Ecobee you got a customer for life!

    I have used the Ecobee 3 since it came out basically and figured it was time to upgrade to the new one. The newest Ecobee is great. Install was a breeze, the interface runs faster, the new temp senors look and perform great, and the addition of the glass front just tops it all off. I am really glad I made the jump to the newest version. Forgot to mention I can now yell at my thermostat to change the temp (or just ask it too). I have always had a really good and positive experience with Ecobee and their support. The Ecobee always comes highly recommended from me!

    I’ve owned 3 different generations now, each new upgrade has never ceased to amaze me with the capabilities they continue to improve upon. Ecobee is continously improving it’s platform and function abilities. My favorite about this new generation is the improved sensors, five year battery life… that’s a major improvement for these sensors.. The sensors are quick to adapt to your every need and are integratable to your Alexa. I have one sensor that I even use to turn on my foyer light and unlock the front door when “secretly” activated. As for the thermostat itself, its fast as lightening and extremely efficient with assisting me to save money. The app supports is great with follow me find me throughout the house. If you use the web portal you even can generate reports on the usage times in comparison to outside temperatures which gives me a better insight on how to continue to be more efficient financially but also improving the lifespan of my A/C unit. Navigating the setup is not bad, customer support is excellent!, If you have a smart home and need to integrate the system with specialized functions from Alexa, be patient, it will work like a charm. The upgrades for this new unit make it worth while over previous generations.

    When my sister confessed she was still using an old analog thermostat, I tried to talk her into an Ecobee. She balked at the price, even when I told her it would pay for itself within months this summer (she lives in Sacramento). SO I bought the newest Ecobee SmartThermostat (Ecobee 5?) and gave her my old Ecobee 3lite.Installation was simple for me, as I already had the wires labeled from my 3lite. Just a quick change of the baseplate and I was done. Once connected, I was easily able to program it using the ecobee website.I am convinced that connected/smart households are the way of the future, and I’m pleased to see Ecobee working to take that future vision and make it a socially responsible thing of today. I will continue to support Ecobee as long as they continue to make innovative products in such an innovative way!

    Note: Make sure you either save your schedule either as screenshots or write it down as you may not see the old settings once you disconnect the old thermostatUpgraded our ecobee 3 to the new thermostat with Alexa. Was easy. Took a pic of the existing wires, turned off the HVAC using the emergency switch, wired in the new base.Selecting the wifi was easy within the APP and not cumbersome like when i had to configure it using the on screen keyboard (welcome change). Paired with HomeKit and Alexa and I was up and running in under 10 minutes. Configuring my daily schedules took another 5 min using the web interface.Bonus: i was able to use my older sensors with the new thermostat just by removing the battery and putting the battery back in and the thermostat detected the sensor, so now i have 4 sensors around the rooms.Pairing of the newer model sensor is a little different and requires using the mobile app to scan the barcode (took me a little while to figure out and the thermostat also gives you this hint when you insert the battery in the sensor 😉 )Alexa features work well, as does music. i mostly use it for news brief and the speaker is adequate for it.

    In addition to be being a great thermostat, this feature packed smart thermostat is the key to my smart home automation. And installation and setup are easy for the average DIYer. One thing that sets this t-stat apart from the competition is the addition of remote sensors (one is included with the t-stat). The remote motion and temperature sensors can be configured to average temps in the rooms that are occupied to assure maximum comfort. Different comfort programs can be configured to use any or all sensors. I am using a total of 6 sensors and at night I only use the bedroom sensor to control the t-stat. This guarantees that the bedroom is exactly the temp I set, winter or summer. The integrated Alexa voice service makes this already great smart thermostat even smarter. This allows voice control through any echo device or the t-stat itself. The speaker has been upgraded in this new ecobee. Steaming music is OK but it also allows pairing with an external bluetooth speaker for even better sound. Also upgraded in this new t-stat is the processor which produces lightening fast response to the touch screen. Ecobee easily integrates with larger smart home ecosystems including; Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, IFTTT, Wink, Haiku, Logitech Harmony, Vera, Control 4 and others. This smart thermostat exceeds my expectations and is a key component to my automated home.
