ecobee3 – resolving the design flaw of thermostats. Thermostats (even the modern ones) have perpetuated the same design flaw. Their job is to deliver comfort throughout the home but they only measure temperature in one location. The ecobee3 smarter WiFi thermostat solves this design flaw by using remote sensors to measure temperature and occupancy in multiple locations in the home. ecobee3 customers save about 23% on their home’s heating and cooling costs, helping them save money and reduce their environmental impact. ecobee3 fits seamlessly in any home, beautifully expressing personal style, with seamless UI for easy and intuitive use.
