Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cameron Remote sensor is nice touch.
Connection was easy on a ten year old system. Setup was easy. Looks great on the wall. Nice smart features to self override its current program: if it senses that you are there it suspends "away" program.

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 Jskog Great Thermostat!
I've been super happy with the ecobee 3 thermostat. I almost bought the Nest, but my neighbor told me about the remote sensors and the integration with HomeKit and I was sold. I have better control over the temperature of my entire house instead of just the main level. I've also saved money on utilities because the systems allows me to create comfort settings that work from day one. It's also cool that it recognizes when I'm not home or in a certain area of the house so that the HVAC system isn't just running to run. Great product that I'd recommend to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ajssbp Excellent thermostat
I've had my ecobee for almost a month now and really like it, but I've had some hiccups along the way. Install was easy, even using the power extender since my thermostat wire only had 4 wires. Setup was also simple. The problem was I kept intermittently losing wifi connection and the only way to regain it was to redo the wifi setup each time. Irritating to say the least. I emailed back and forth with tech support and think the issue is resolved (hasn't dropped wifi for almost a week now..... fingers crossed). Overall I really like the thermostat, all the data I can get from it and the functionality the sensors provide. Would certainly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Solution to Nest's Shortcomings
The Nest may have revolutionized the thermostat world, but every new product has it's drawbacks and the Ecobee has filled in the gaps where the Nest and other smart thermostats are lacking. The temperature difference between the basement and my daughter's bedroom can be over 10 degrees Fahrenheit at some points in the day which makes temperature control a big issue in our home. With the Ecobee smart sensors I am able to regulate temperatures in my home as a whole unit when my old thermostat only knew what the temperature was in the hallway. Smart sensors are just one way the Ecobee is a great product and how it has helped me save on energy costs while keeping my home comfortable.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by NEdwards Ecobee early review
First, let me start by saying this was extremely easy to install myself. Didn't take long at all. I absolutely love this thermostat. It's clean looks go well with the decor in my home. Ease of setting the system after install was an absolute breeze. There's additional functionality I haven't had time to explore. Overall, I'd say this is well worth the time and money and I will definitely be changing the other thermostats in my house to Ecobee!

A great alternative to the Nest, and less likely to snoop on your habit.
Easy to install. Tech support was great as I have a hybrid heat exchanger/boiler system. Only took about 45 minutes total from package to up and working.
Ability to manage from my iPhone and iPad are a huge plus, with nice metrics display on my iPad.
