In Short

Ecobee is a smart, Wi-Fi enabled thermostat that brings your climate control into the home automation age. The Ecobee3, when paired with its remote sensors, lets you not only monitor and control the temperature in one room, but in multiple rooms. That makes it much more flexible and powerful than similar systems without the remote sensor functionality.

(Note: a new, HomeKit-capable version of the Ecobee3 is coming later this summer. We'll update these links once it's available.)

The Ecobee3 sports a 3.5-inch touch-enabled LCD screen (at 320x480) and monitors both outside weather and internal climate to adjust heating and cooling. Thanks to the sensors, the Ecobee3 understand not only when people are home, but which rooms are occupied, so it can further tune the climate for maximum efficiency.

And since the Ecobee3 fully supports the iPhone, iPad, and Mac, you can control it at any time, for anywhere.
