Comment:
I am a General Contractor in 2 states out west. I purchased Ecobee 2 due to its #2 rating,(at the time), and its smart phone capability and ease of use. I installed this in numerous friends homes and was very happy until they changed their smart phone application of which they are having copious amounts of issues. It is completely different from the original in context and flat out does not work at all!! I have placed some calls to the Manager of development and was told this would be fixed by end of year. END OF YEAR??? Are you serious?? He told me it was done at the request of the CEO, Mr Stuart Lombard. I asked him if he was rated #2 by Consumer reports, why would they change anything? He could not answer my question. My customers have all been calling me trying to get me to fix this issue and I can not. It will costs me thousands to replace the ecobee thermostats for my very dis pleased friends.I actually have this thermostat in my residence but will Be replacing it this weekend. Stay away from this thermostat. It absolutely does not function on smart phones.

Comment:
We wavered between the Nest and the Ecobee. Glad we chose the Ecobee. Installed on a Lennox HVAC system. Managing settings is very responsive. We have never had issues with connectivity to the thermostat or the Ecobee web site. Shows energy use, and is exportable to Excel. It is easier to use the phone app then to actually us the touch thermostat. Would highly recommend.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Maximize Efficiency
Comment:
I have 2 of these installed in my house operating my geothermal heat pump HVAC system (1 upstairs, 1 downstairs). This replaced the Honeywell Prestige HD series that the HVAC contractor gave me. I replaced it because I wanted to maximize my efficiency by utilization Stage 2 ONLY when absolutely necessary. In my system Stage 1 cooling is 40% more efficient than Stage 2 cooling. It was easy to install (I did it myself), and easy to setup. I can operate the thermostat from anywhere! No more leaving the house and forgetting to adjust the thermostat! The web interface is great too with lots of information, although the Home IQ could still use some refinement. <br /><br />After showing this to my HVAC contractor, he was convinced and became a dealer!
