Your new thermostat will come with temperature sensors to place around your home. It will use the information it receives from those sensors—thousands of data points in all—to tell whether or not you’re at home, and how to heat or cool your home in the most efficient way possible based on weather conditions and your preferred comfort settings.
Is the ecobee3 like a Nest?
The ecobee3 is better! The Nest just takes readings from the area around the device—which more often than not is a hallway. The ecobee3 monitors the rooms you’re actually using, for maximum at-home comfort and maximum energy efficiency.
Can I control and fine tune my ecobee3 settings from my smartphone?
Yes! Even from your laptop or tablet, if you’d prefer. Plus, because ecobee3 is constantly monitoring your equipment performance, it will send you an alert if anything is not working or working sub-optimally.
Is the ecobee3 hard to use?
Not at all. But don’t take our word for it. PC MAG said: "easy to install and even easier to program, and it's loaded with features... It's our new Editors' Choice for smart thermostats.”
When will I get my ecobee3?
The ecobee3 thermostat will be shipped by Earth Networks, complete with installation instructions, within 2-3 business days via UPS Ground. Customers can expect to receive the ecobee3 within 3-5 business days from the day it is shipped. Refunds are available within 30 days if the package is unopened.
