The Ecobee4 is the new smart thermostat to beat (Nest who?)

 

The Ecobee4 has everything you could possibly want from a thermostat, including a built-in Alexa speaker.

Ecobee's $249 Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat has a responsive display, a remote sensor and tons of smart integrations, including a built-in Amazon Alexa speaker.

The price is high, particularly if you don't care about the Alexa speaker or the Ecobee4's other smart capabilities.

There's no comparison -- the Ecobee4 is the best smart thermostat available today.

Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat hands-on review

 

With an excellent whole-home sensor system, an easy-to-use interface, and a simple app, the Ecobee4 is a solid choice for a smart thermostat. The fact that it's an Amazon Alexa speaker just sweetens the deal.

Sets temps based on schedules and geo-fencing ; Remote sensors improve accuracy ; Works with other Alexa devices ; Easy-to-use interface and app

Can't change Alexa wake word ; No Alexa control of HVAC

We recommend Ecobee4. Due largely to its ability to connect with remote sensors, the smart thermostat performs extremely well, offering users an array of features and configurations that can make homes feel warmer and perform better.

Ecobee4

 

Built-in Alexa voice technology, integration with other connected home products, a remote room sensor, and numerous wiring options make the Ecobee4 the smart thermostat to beat.

Embedded Alexa voice service. Remote room sensor. Works with other connected devices. Easy to install.

Pricey. Middling audio quality.

You'll pay more for the Ecobee4 than you will for a traditional non-connected thermostat, but that's true with nearly all smart devices. And that said, you get your money's worth with this thermostat, especially if you want to take advantage of...

Ecobee4 review

 

Editors' note (May 9, 2017): Amazon introduced Echo-to-Echo Alexa voice calling today. This feature isn't currently supported by the Ecobee4 thermostat.

Ecobee4 smart thermostat review: Retains the great functions of the Ecobee3, and adds Alexa

 

Our favorite smart thermostat gets a little smarter thanks to Alexa, but it's otherwise identical to the previous generation.

Remote sensor makes a big difference ; Easy setup ; Great touchscreen interface

Alexa integration seems a bit unnecessary ; Otherwise the same as the 3 ; Harder to install without the C-wire

Aside from Alexa, the Ecobee4 is basically identical to the Ecobee3. It comes with one remote sensor just as before, uses the same app, functions identically, and uses basically the same touchscreen interface. It’s sharp, easy to use, and has excellent...

Review: Ecobee4 Thermostat a strong choice for Apple HomeKit & Amazon Alexa users

 

The ecobee4 is easily one of the best smart thermostats you can buy, the only questions being compatibility with your house and whether you can justify its hefty price tag.

ecobee4 Review

 

Among smart thermostats, the ecobee4 has few equals. It holds up well against the Nest Learning Thermostat in every category we tested. This in mainly because the manufacturer's customer support is outstanding, the mobile app is intuitive and the...

The ecobee4's voice control features help make it easy to use.

It requires a C wire, which can complicate the setup process.

The ecobee4 is a solid smart thermostat, and its remote sensors, voice controls and ample customer support options create a great user experience.
