In case you haven't heard, there's a new Ecobee Smart Thermostat on the block. First released in early June, it usually sells for $249, and while we've seen a couple of insignificant price drops, it just hit an all-time low of $235. That's 5% off the usual cost. Shipping is free with Amazon Prime, and your membership will also get you access to Amazon Prime Day next month.

This luxe thermostat features a glass finish, touch display, far-field voice recognition, and more. It also comes with a Smart Sensor, which keeps important rooms comfortable based on both occupancy and temperature. Having a smart thermostat can actually save you money over time. For instance, it can lower the temperature at night, or keep your house warmer when you aren't home.

The thermostat also features Alexa voice control built right in, so a few spoken words can adjust the temperature of your home. That functionality offers you a slew of Alexa skills, like music playback, weather forecasts, and drop-in calling. You can control it via the free app for iOS and Android, too. Installation takes 45 minutes or less, and the thermostat also plays nicely with Google Assistant, HomeKit, SmartThings, IFTTT, and more.
