Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wbtlevi Very good Thermostat
The install was easy enough. Took less than 30 minutes. Instructions and videos were clear.
The only complaint I have with the install process is the double sided sticky tape for the PEK was not strong enough to hold it. So I had to use standard tape to hold in my HVAC.
The Thermostat portion was easy to mount too. It looks great on the wall compared to my old unit.
Setup was straightforward. Calibration was taking longer than the 20 minutes, but as soon as I pressed on the display it cleared and started working.
I really enjoy using the app and HomeKit integration is very nice to have. It fits very well in my smart enabled home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jaums Much Better Than Nest
I had a Nest for several months. Well made hardware, easy to wire up, but short on features. I had quirks Nest said were due to incompatibilities with my Verizon Fios router, so they offered a refund. I took the refund also because of a lack of features, some nice to have and others I needed for my HVAC system to run properly. I was also annoyed that the big number so beautifully displayed on the nicely-tech looking round on my wall so proudly displayed the set temperature, not the current temperature. I know what temp it is set for, what I want to know is the current temp. Current temp is usually shown, small, like something not very important--when it's not showing, you assume it's the same as the set temp. Nope. Not what I want to see.
The ecobee 3 thermostat does prominently show the current temp plus has remotes to keep track of other rooms in the house AND whether they are occupied or not! Cleaver and useful information for a smart thermostat to have. Plus it has many options/settings that Nest doesn't have. The ones you don't need, you can just leave alone.
Oh, and the company attitude is much better than Nest. Lot's of opportunity to interact with the company. Nest came across as not caring what customer's post.
I'm much happier with my ecobee 3 than with Nest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roamingsnake Great thermostat, highly recommended
Great thermostat that is HomeKit enabled (thought I am yet to use that feature, as the stand-alone tstat provides all I need). One little hiccup encountered with an incorrectly assembled remote sensor. Fixed the problem in 30 seconds by finding help online. Ecobee sent me an email fessing up on the issue, and how to fix it. They even included an option to have a new sensor shipped if you didn't want to go through the hassle of fixing it. Seems like the company bends over backwards for its customers.
Killer feature that puts it above the Nest being the remote sensors which puts an end to deciding home comfort based on one location. Highly recommended if you have your thermostat in the bad place, or hot/cold spots in your home that you'd want to monitor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mat919 Amazing....
In three winter months it paid for itself. Saved me additional 30% on each bill, compared to my already extremely adjusted for savings old thermostat...... with someone always staying at home.
If we all were "9 to 5", I'm sure we would see additional savings.
Beautifully crafted, simple installation, great app, great web interface. Love the"lock" feature, so my spouse and kids cannot play around with settings.
I plan to purchase additional sensors.... with such great performance, they'll probably pay for itself next winter.
Home Depot had it on sale for a short period of time, so I snatched it for 10% off. Awesome!!!!

Being a HVAC tech I would recommend this over the Nest. Setting this up is child's play
App works great and having a sensor is a huge benefit to have. Most thermostats are not located in the correct place. Having the sensor (you can add additional sensors) that can act as the main thermostat, with the ability of portability and wireless makes this a 5 star thermostat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kent Excellent product
Do your research...to me it came down to Ecobee or Nest...and Nest (google), they are in a holding pattern- meaning that they are not creating much anymore and other companies who are more creative are growing all around them.
I had this professionally installed just to make sure that everything was done correct connection wise and functionality wise...if you do have the 5th wire (read up on installation and check out your thermometer by removing it from the wall and examining the wiring) it should be a relatively easy install. You mihgt even consider using Yelp and calling a few companies to find out who is the resident expert at installing these products and who offers the best deal. I paid $145 for installation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by techastronomer Needed a thermostat that I could customize given my work schedule, got so much more!
This couldn't have been easier to set up. 15 minutes to mark everything that was needed, drilled some new holes and wired up the new Ecobee. I now have access to my main floor and upstairs temps and can customize my heating/cooling schedule. It also looks quite modern and I have gotten compliments on how it fits into the rest of my home decor.

I replaced two old, programmable, thermostats with the ecobee3 Smarter Bundle. I had several rooms at the end of the house that were cold. Installing the ecobee3 allowed me to close the vents in the master bedroom where the thermostat is and use the remote sensors in the cold rooms to control the "set point". I know have perfectly comfortable rooms without any rewiring or furnace/duct work. Awesome!
