"Free" first sensor?

This question is from 7-Day Smarter Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat with Remote Sensor, HomeKit Enabled
Asked by
Cambridge, MA
Read all my Q&A
August 17, 2015
Why does the description state that the product comes with a "free" first sensor? If the product is packaged with the thermostat and a sensor, and priced at $249, then that is the free market price for the product, one sensor included. This is at the best, a hopeful marketing ploy, and at the worst, false advertising. Offer a second sensor as a special for free, and then you get closer to the truth. *I'm not blaming best buy, as this could very well be the script from the company, but someone needs to fess up!

Answer: 
A couple of things.
Nothing is 'free'. You pay for it. "Included" would be a better word.
There is a sensor in the main unit, so there are two sensors. There is just one remote sensor.

Answer: 
Mu Saleem, are you suggesting that there are also offers for the unit and hardware for $249, that do not include the additional sensor? If not, then the sensor is part of the package and not "FREE". That is the issue, however trivial, that the question's author is concerned with.

The package contains the thermostat and a sensor. They do sell sensors separately, in packs of 2. So depending on when you get it you could get deals to end up with 3 total sensors. This is the only product on the market, that I have found, that actually can leverage the sensors the way you would expect. Highly recommended.

Answer: 
There is one sensor in the thermostat, and one free remote sensor. That is two sensors. Compare to the Nest - there is only one sensor, inside the thermostat. So with the ecobee3 you have a sensor in thermostat where it is installed on the wall, and one you are free to place anywhere.

By default it averages all the different sensors to make the heating or cooling temperature or you can set it up to only worry about 1 at a certain time. Like i set my sensor up in my daughter's room and set a schedule so every night it only uses that sensor to determine if the heater or ac needs to be turned on so only my daughters room is the correct temp. It will obviously still pump ac or heat into the other rooms, it just won't care what the temp is in those other rooms. I think this is awesome because when her door is closed at night and the heater turned on, it would make her room an oven while it heated up the rest of the house, so i had to turn the heat way down and use a space heater in her room. now i don't have to do that, i can trust the ecobee to keep my daughter comfortable.

Ecobee3 7-Day Smarter Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat with Remote Sensor, HomeKit Enabled is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 646.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Price and Excellent Product! After tried many thermostats in my home ( Honeywell , Trane, Nest ) I found a nice thermostat that put my house with a real temperature. Highly recommended to everyone. The other function i love it is the sensor. As so might know, thermostat temperature is is where thermostat is installed. Example: Thermostat room or area mark 75 F and oher area as family room mark 78F. With sensor you will have the same temperature that yous thermostat has or mark. Other nice function if App. You can control it everywhere you are with a simple touch in your phone and it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the Ecobee3! I have had this for about a year and absolutely love all the features. I thin... I love the Ecobee3! I have had this for about a year and absolutely love all the features. I think my favorite feature that sets the Ecobee3 apart is the remote sensors. I have a 100 year old, two story home and I was having trouble managing the heating and cooling between the floors. The remote sensors let me use the temperature on one floor to drive the furnace/AC at different times of the day. This has saved me a ton of money and I don't have to mess with trying to manually compensate like I did with my old thermostat. Also the fact that the sensors detect motion is huge because it will automatically determine when you are gone and set the thermostat to away. This is super helpful when you leave for a few hours. One recommendation - check with BOTH your Electric and Natural Gas provider to see if they offer rebates. I received a total of $120 in rebates and if you combine this with the savings I have realized, the Ecobee will almost pay for itself in the first year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good thermostat This is my first smart thermostat so I can't compare against others but what sold me on the ecobee vs Nest or others is the ability to add additional sensors. This is not perfect because if the room where the thermostat is located warms up easily like the living room and the bedroom is usually colder; ecobee will increase the temperature in the living room until the bedroom reaches the desired temperature if you are in the bedroom. This is a problem if both locations are occupied because the living room may become too hot in order to make the bedroom comfortable. Nevertheless, it is still a good compromise for single zone HVAC systems

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Footprint Great little thermostat. I love how it was REALLY easy to install and how small a footprint it has. I like being able to monitor and adjust the temperature remotely from my cellphone. Only one kink though, wifi access was lost quite often at the beginning but now seem to have stabilized, after I took it off the wall a few times (albeit too many times). Would recommend! Edit (July 8, 2016) - after owning this thermostat for a month, I have to say I really enjoy having it. My house is overall more comfortable (the room sensor works great). Wifi hasn't been dropped since when reported at the beginning so it's been reliable when I need to access it from the app remotely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great WiFi Thermostat I purchased 2 EcoBee3 thermostats and installed them myself. Installation was easy given my available wiring configuration. Each one took approximately 5 minutes from start to finish. Very easily done. I have been utilizing the programmable features. As well as follow-me mode. I have two remote sensors in other rooms in my house which help to monitor movement and temps for better regulated temps throughout entire house. I've been using for 2 months now and am very pleased with the results. As an added bonus, my natural gas provider offered rebates of $100 per unit to help offset the initial upfront costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EcoBee3 Works Great!! This Thermostat has worked great for the situation I HAD! The location of my upstairs thermostat is in the master bedroom where at nap time, my younger son sleeps. My oldest son naps in his bedroom. Problem is is when the AC unit cools the upstairs and turns off, my oldest son's bedroom heats up a lot faster than the master bedroom which means the AC doesn't keep his bedroom cool. We've installed window tint and thick curtains and while they helped, my son would still wake up sweating. This Thermostat was the trick!! Now when his room heats up, the AC turns on and quickly cools his room back down without "overcooling" the master bedroom. Has worked like a Charm!! Very pleased!

We have two zones and bout 2 units and 2 extra sensors. Installation was good. The thermostat installations were easy. But, we did have to use the Power Extender Kits at the furnaces. Our furnace wiring was not clearly marked. I called their customer service and they got back to me right away, on a Sunday no less. I sent a picture of the wiring and they had the answer instantly. A few minutes later it was done and working. The programming was easy and the setup choices are very good. But, the remote sensors are the best part. We have uneven heat in certain rooms and floors. We bought a couple extra sensors (the Ecobee3 comes with one remote sensor) and put them in various rooms and the basement. The Ecobee3 averages out the temperatures and right away the heat balance was better. You can name the sensors and see their individual temperatures from the Ecobee3 or the app (the app is great). From there, we adjusted a couple of the air vents and dialed it in. All good! The sensors have to bee (pun intended) within a certain distance of the Ecobee3. If you have a large house, make sure your's are within the limits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great equipment A spike caused some AC and thermostat damage so repairs and a new thermostat were needed. Had a Honeywell and was happy, but the Ecobee room sensors caught my attention as my thermostat is located in a hall by the air return. We were always fiddling with the setting because of this. Since installing this and a couple of sensors we haven't had to mess with it at all. The app works well and being able to set which sensors are active is a great feature. Even though there was nothing wrong with it, I replaced the upstairs unit a couple days later with another Ecobee.
