EcoBee3: Ultimate Control of residential HVAC

We’ve heard a lot about “SmartHomes” over the past several years, potentially more so with the popularity of Nest, and other emerging technologies.

I have to admit that I’m a recent EcoBee3 convert (rather than Nest), and I’m hooked.  Our EcoBee system has been in place for about 3 weeks, and I find myself wondering why I waited so long to take the leap.

Let me first say that for anyone who’s ever been frustrated by having to get up to walk down the hallway to adjust the temperature or air flow – or worse yet, not having control at all – you’re in for a treat.  Part of the reason why I selected the EcoBee3 for our home was because it has a phone app. as well as a web site interface.  However, the other key differentiators are that it allows multiple temperature reading sensors (for different rooms and/or floors), as well as it shows the current set-point in addition to the current temperature on the main display (which oddly enough, Nest does not do).

I will post up more photo’s and examples once I’ve collected a better set of the same… however, all I can say in the meantime is – “Where have you been all my life?!”.  😉
