Amazon has dropped the price of the ecobee4 Smart Thermostat to just $198, however if you clip the 5-percent off coupon on the page, you will get another five-percent off, and bring the price down to just $188. That makes this a really good price for the ecobee4, and actually its all-time lowest price. The previous low was $199 for Black Friday and through Cyber Monday. So this is a really good deal on the ecobee4 and can make a really good gift this holiday season. This is in stock and will definitely arrive before Christmas. It is also offering up free shipping on all orders, but if you want it a bit faster, you'll want to get Amazon Prime and you can sign up for a 30-day trial here.
The ecobee4 is a smart thermostat as you might expect, and it does work with the ecobee app. But it also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, allowing you to use your voice to control it. ecobee is a bit different from Nest and other competitors out there. It actually comes with a room sensor (and you can buy more separately), that can be placed throughout your home and tell ecobee what the temperature is in every room. So if you have a room that's further away from the furnace, and it gets colder in their, ecobee will know and will increase the heat so that room isn't so cold.
