We're expecting plenty of HomeKit deals this holiday season as more people look to smart up their homes. Ecobee makes some of the best heating and cooling systems on the market and, with Black Friday looming large, you probably don't have to wait very long to score a Black Friday ecobee deal.
Several ecobee smart thermostats are available with differing feature sets and price points. The latest 5th-generation ecobee device tops our list of the best smart thermostats in 2021, and for good reason.
The new ecobee SmartThermostat is the ultimate combination of convenience and power. It works with all voice assistants, with Alexa built right in. It's also the first non-Apple hardware to feature built-in Siri, though you'll need to have a HomePod or HomePod mini set up somewhere in your smart home to enable that.
With an ecobee thermostat, you can shout out temperature and mode adjustments and hook up temperature sensors in each room to ensure it's the right level of heat wherever you are. With automations, you can even have the heating or cooling turn off when you're out of the house.
We reviewed the ecobee SmartThermostat in-depth if you want to check that out before placing your order. It retails for $249 though we have seen it go as low as $192 in the past. We expect deals in the region of $200 for Black Friday, which are well worth snapping up. Other smart thermostats are still available and may go much lower, so keep an eye on the list above. We also anticipate deals on the ecobee SmartCamera and temperature sensors.
When will the Black Friday ecobee deals begin?
The doors of Black Friday 2021 officially swing open on November 26, though the sales are already underway at many retailers. While not all of the deals are happening right now, there are plenty of Black Friday ecobee deals to choose from already. Further sales are set to kick off in time for Black Friday week, which starts on Monday, November 22, and runs through the following Monday, which just so happens to be Cyber Monday.
It is worth noting that there have been a ton of supply chain and production issues this year, so supplies of some products may run dry sooner rather than later. Shipping issues are always a problem the closer we get to Christmas, so the early bird will likely get the deal worm this year.
Where will the best Black Friday ecobee deals be?
You can find ecobee products at most major retailers and, when sales kick-off, we tend to find that pricing is pretty consistent across all of them. That's good news for you, though, as it means you can take your pick of the best retailer for you. Here are the best places to start your searches.
- Amazon: Fast Prime shipping with the lowest prices around (opens in new tab)
- Best Buy: Expect a lot of smart home deals throughout Black Friday week (opens in new tab)
- Walmart: Likely to price match the best deals around (opens in new tab)
- Newegg: Doesn't compete on price as often but may be a good place to shop if other retailers sell out (opens in new tab)
