The Ecobee Smart Thermostat has dropped to $199.99 at Best Buy. This deal is part of Best Buy's deals of the day and matches the lowest we've seen for Ecobee's newest device. The smart thermostat normally sells for around $250, which is the price you'll find it at other retailers like Home Depot. The last time we saw this thermostat drop to $200 was last year during the holiday shopping season. It's nice to see it back down, and it looks like it's going on sale at the perfect time with summer coming up.
We love the Ecobee 4 and have written about it many times. Despite the name not continuing the numbers, this version on sale today could be considered the Ecobee 5. The SmartThermostat features a whole new design with a glass finish, a vivid touch display, a quad-core processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and far-field voice recognition that can pick up your commands from across the room.
The smart sensor that comes with it can be used to monitor the temperature in a specific room, giving you more accurate control where you need it most. It will even automatically adjust your thermostat based on occupancy and temperature to keep things at a comfortable level.
The Ecobee will actually help you reduce waste and save up to 23% on your heating and cooling costs. It's also super easy to install. You can do it yourself in just 45 minutes. Ecobee includes video walkthroughs and a step-by-step guide on the free app.
Not only does the SmartThermostat work with Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung's SmartThings, it also has Amazon Alexa built right in. You don't even need to connect it to an Amazon device to talk to Alexa. Control your entire smart home straight from your thermostat.
