Nothing is more satisfying than a DIY project that helps bring a sense of control to a busy household.

Whether you’re looking to save on rising energy costs or have a pulse on everything at home while you’re on the go, some of our favorite DIY enthusiasts from Instagram are sharing why they decided to upgrade to an ecobee smart home. Join them as they install an ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium, add-on ecobee SmartSensor for doors and windows, and sign-up for ecobee Smart Security.

From ease of installation to discovering their top ecobee features, find out what DIY experts @honeyandhomedesigns, @sarahflipsit, @truehome_, @peonyandhoney, and @neverskipbrunch have to say.

1) @honeyandhomedesigns share how easy it is to install ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium

Candy and Jono are a husband-and-wife duo renovating their 1970’s era condo to bring it into the 21st century. They were ready to update their hallway décor to match their evolving style, so it was the perfect time to upgrade to the all-new ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium. Candy explains, “once we connected all the wires, we jumped on the ecobee app and followed their easy step-by-step guide...and it’s definitely an upgrade from our previous thermostat!” Staying comfortable and saving energy really can be simple.

2) Learn all about the built-in air quality monitor only on ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium with @saraflipsit

Home health and air quality are more important than ever. When Sarah upgraded to an ecobee smart thermostat to save on heating and cooling costs she didn’t know how much she would love the built-in air quality monitor. As a busy parent, Sarah shares “with little babies in my home, knowing the air quality is safe is very important to me.” Breathing the cleanest air possible can be as easy as opening a window or changing your air filter. Watch to find out why Sarah loves the air quality monitor found exclusively on ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium.

3) Find out why upgrading to all-new ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium was a priority for @truehome_

Sometimes a smart home upgrade is a necessity. Ajai has been renovating and was ready to upgrade an ecobee smart thermostat ever since she purchased her home. “We inherited this mess of a thermostat…from the early 90s,” she explains. Unlike her old thermostat, ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium has a glass display and a body made from sandblasted zinc. “Beauty really is in the details…I’ve never seen a thermostat look so chic!” Check out her video to watch Ajai unbox and upgrade to an ecobee smart thermostat.

4) Pause heating or cooling when a door or window is open is the feature @peonyandhoney didn’t know she needed

Erika upgraded to an ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium earlier in the year, so adding ecobee SmartSensor for doors and windows was next up on her smart home upgrade list. “We have peace of mind knowing that we’ll get alerts if a door or window has been opened and if we decide to open the windows for some fresh air, the sensors will signal the thermostat to pause heating and prevent wasted energy.” Watch to find out why Erika recommends signing up for ecobee Smart Security and adding ecobee SmartSensor for doors and windows to your smart home.

5) @neverskipbrunch tells us how easy it is to add-on ecobee Smart Security

A secret worth letting everyone in on. Cara shares how easy it is to transform your ecobee smart thermostat into a home security hub with ecobee’s Smart Security subscription. “It’s actually the only smart thermostat that can double as your home security system by simply adding on sensors.” Cara goes on to explain, “I love that I can monitor my home from anywhere using the ecobee app and have peace of mind knowing my home is protected.” She even added on ecobee SmartCamera to monitor her newly renovated entry way. Smart security really can be that easy.
