The Internet of Things, or more simply IoT, does certainly seem to be where the market is heading. Everything connected and everything working or controlled by everything else. This is no more apparent than within the home market where you can now find a connected version of all of your favorite appliances, light switches, thermostats and probably anything else you can think of. In terms of the thermostats, while Nest is a popular option, ecobee with their ecobee3 Smarter Wi-Fi Thermostat is also a very popular option.
This is a thermostat which looks to offer you complete control over the temperature of your home. As well as the more simpler method of being able to remotely active or schedule an activation for your heating, the ecobee3 is also designed to be intelligent enough to read the environmental signs and be able to adjust based on your home’s unique needs. When you are home, it will know you are there and ensure the house is set to a comfortable temperature, just like it will be able to turn off rooms when it senses no one is there. All means which in the long run will save you on heating bills. Not to mention, it is compatible with other connected items like Alexa or your smartphone. This is a smart thermostat which normally costs around the $249.99 figure, although a deal currently live on eBay means you can pick one up for only $189.99.
