Ecobee Room Sensor 2-Pack is on sale for $39.50 — That’s 50% Off [Expired]

Get this Ecobee Sensor Deal

Those of you who got in on the Ecobee Smart Thermostat deal that I posted about earlier, or if you already own an Ecobee Thermostat, you might be interested in this deal on additional remote sensors. Best Buy currently has the Ecobee Remote Sensor 2-Pack on sale for $39.50. That is half off of the regular price of $79 for this bundle. These sensors allow you to monitor the temperature in rooms where the Ecobee thermostat is not located so that you can have the thermostat tailer the temperature for a specific room. The Ecobee 4, which is on sale now for $199, already comes with one room sensor, but the Ecobee 3, which is on sale for $139, does not come with any, even though it is compatible with the same sensors.

Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat w/ built-in Alexa is on sale for $199.00 — Lowest Price Ever

Get this Ecobee4 Deal

The Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat is on sale for $199.00 for Black Friday. This matches the lowest price it has ever been. This is easily the most Alexa-friendly smart thermostat on the market. That’s not only because its hands-free capabilities essentially make it like having an Echo Dot on your wall, but because Amazon works closely with Ecobee, so they are always among the first 3rd-party manufacturers to gain new Alexa capabilities that get released. A nice perk of Ecobee thermostats is that they come with a remote room sensor that lets you dial in a temperature for a specific part of your house. With other smart thermostats, like Nest, you have to pay extra for room sensors. If you’re already up to your neck in Alexa devices in your home, you can save a bit of money and get the Ecobee3 Smart Thermostat on sale for $139.00, which has many of the same capabilities, minus the built-in Alexa mics and speaker. That price for the Ecobee3 is also the lowest it has ever been.

The Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat has just gone on sale for $199.99 on Amazon. This matches the lowest price this thermostat has ever been, which has only occurred twice before today.

Think of it as having an extra Echo Dot mounted on your wall. The Ecobee4 comes with a separate remote sensor so that it monitors the temperature of more than one spot of your home and you can add additional sensors if necessary to make it even more efficient.

ecobee4 Smart Thermostat w/ built-in Alexa on sale for $199 — New lowest price ever

The ecobee4 Smart Thermostat has just gone on sale for $199 on Amazon. This is the first time this thermostat has ever been priced this low. The ecobee4 takes Alexa compatibility further than any other smart thermostat. Not only can you control it through Alexa on Echo and Fire TV devices, but the thermostat itself is an Alexa device that you can talk to and give any Alexa command. It’s like having an Echo Dot mounted to your wall. The ecobee4 also just became the first third-party Alexa device to gain Echo Spatial Perception (ESP), which means it will integrate seamlessly with any other Echo devices you have so that two devices don’t respond simultaneously. The ecobee4 also comes with a separate remote sensor so that it monitors the temperature of more than one spot of your home and you can add additional sensors if necessary to make it even smarter.

Ecobee4 thermostat with built-in Alexa now supports Echo Spatial Perception

The ecobee4 Smart Thermostat is the first and only thermostat to provide full-fledged Alexa capabilities directly from the device itself, thanks to its array of far-field microphones, built-in speaker, and LED light bar. The only issue is that, since it’s not an Amazon product, it did not have Echo Spatial Perception (ESP), which is what allows Amazon’s line of Echo smart speakers to know which device is closest to the speaker so that only one responds. A new software update for the ecobee4 has now addressed this issue by making it, to my knowledge, the first non-Amazon product to support ESP. Read more ›
