Amazon has discounted the ecobee3 lite Smart Thermostat today, bringing the price down to just $139. That takes about $30 off of the regular price, and also brings it down to its lowest price all-time. This model doesn't typically go on sale, and when it does, it's only about $10 off. So this is a thermostat worth picking up at this price.
The ecobee3 lite is a more lightweight (and cheaper) model of the ecobee3, but all of the usual features are still there. This smart thermostat allows you to adjust the temperature from your phone, using the ecobee app, so you can lower the heat during the day and raise it at night – since winter is now upon us. It also works with Amazon Alexa, so you can use Alexa to change the temperature of your home as well. The ecobee3 lite does also work with the room sensors that ecobee sells separately. These room sensors are going to allow the ecobee3 lite to get a better gauge of what the temperature is in other rooms of you home, which is going to save you even more money on your heating and cooling bill. Speaking of saving money, most people save at least 23-percent per year on their heating and cooling bills with an ecobee3 lite smart thermostat, and it pays for itself within two years of purchasing.
