Smart Home with ecobee
There’s a wide range of smart home upgrades for your home out there – from TVs to blinds to fridges just about every part of your home can be given a brain and made to work better. ACE Home Services knows the benefits of upgrading your home and that’s why we partnered with ecobee to provide our customers with ecobee SmartThermostats.
ecobee’s Smart Products
There are a few different variations of their main product, a smarter thermostat for your home including the SmartThermostat with voice control, the ecobee3, ecobee3, and ecobee3 lite.
While some features are unique to certain products, all ecobees work with various smart home hubs like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Homekit. If you’re not into those smart hubs every single one works with a Mobile App. They’re all the same size, a 3.5” clean display, with a 3 year warranty and the ability to forecast 7 days ahead to help you plan your heating and cooling usage! Keep up to 15 months of historical info to compare this year to the next and be able to easily refine and hone in your heating and cooling.
The ecobee SmartThermostat comes ready for multiple control inputs such as voice controls, smartphones, or smart watches – so how ever you need to control it you are able to!
It’s not just about the thermostat either! ecobee has created a sensor to add on to their systems and make them more effective! Placing sensors around your home can help you calibrate your SmartThermostat and eliminate cold or hot spots. The sensors can also be set to detect occupancy, allowing you to use the Smart Home/Away feature where the ecobee will automatically adjust for the presence of people, making saving money even simpler. Not sure if you’re ready to install sensors around your home? Well, these are really easy to set up, simply activate with your ecobee app and place them on their stand or stick it to the wall – wherever you like – it’s that simple.
ecobee was founded in 2007 by Stuart Lombard. He was on a mission: to reduce his family’s carbon footprint – and to save money. He correctly identified that the majority of his energy use was from heating and cooling. Unhappy with the standard programmable thermostats, he set out to make his own. And so, ecobee! Their mission is to create smarter wi-fi enabled thermostats that are beautiful, easy to use, and provide optimal comfort and savings. The fact they’re good for the planet is just a really nice bonus!
