Ecobee Smart Thermostat Enhanced

The ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium and Enhanced models include a larger glass face with more colours and higher resolution, waterfall edges, built-in radar for improved temperature readings, occupancy and motion detection from further away and around corners, plus a refreshed user experience and now larger display that offers an easier menu and larger temperature sliders.

The higher-end flagship Premium thermostat adds an indoor air quality monitor (showing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), estimated carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, and relative humidity) with alerts, plus an embedded smart speaker with Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa, in a zinc body.

Also included is a SmartSensor to place anywhere in the home to detect motion and also monitor the temperature.
