ecobee thermostats have built-in DataRhythm™ Technology and understand when to turn on your heating or cooling equipment based on your home’s unique energy profile, your schedule, the weather outside and thousands of other data points.
Wireless Remote Sensors
Ordinary thermostats read the temperature in only one room, but are supposed to deliver comfort in all rooms. ecobee3 remote sensors deliver the right temperature in the rooms that matter most.
If your ecobee3 senses that you are home during your scheduled Away period, or away during your scheduled Home period, it will automatically override your schedule to maximize comfort and savings.
Control your comfort by averaging the temperature of the selected sensors that detect motion or all of the selected sensors in your home, regardless of motion.
ecobee3 understands how your home heats up and cools down, and uses wi-fi to track your local weather throughout the day. It then uses this information to determine the best way to bring your home to your desired indoor temperature when you arrive home and maintain it while minimizing how long your heating or cooling equipment runs for.
In homes with ventilators, ecobee3 will recognize the temperature difference on cool summer evenings and will use the outside air to cool down your home instead of the air conditioner.
For homes with humidifiers, ecobee3 regulates indoor humidity to prevent frost buildup on windows when it’s cold outside and high humidity indoors.
AC Overcool to Dehumidify
ecobee3 can use your air conditioner to lower indoor humidity in the absence of a dehumidifier.
Alerts & Reminders
ecobee3 is constantly monitoring your equipment performance and will send you an alert if anything is not working or working sub-optimally. Similarly, ecobee3 can send you service reminders to help you maintain your equipment.
At the end of a heating or cooling cycle, when the coil or heat exchanger is still cold, ecobee3 runs the fan to get the most cooling and dehumidification out from your equipment.
Robust Staging Options
ecobee3 optimizes usage of multi- stage heating and cooling equipment by engaging the higher stage when indoor temperature is notably different than desired temperature and switching back to the lower stage as your home gets closer to the desired temperature. You can also control staging by using advanced setting options.
ecobee smart thermostats are compatible with HRVs, ERVs, ZigBee, and Remote Sensors, giving you ultimate control over your environment. ecobee has a robust API and an active developer community working on new ways to integrate your thermostat into your connected home.
