Ecobee4 Smart Ther­mo­stat, $249 US

NOVO - - Gifts Under $300 -

Why would you want to con­trol a ther­mo­stat from your phone, you ask? Great ques­tion! I (Suave Ka­jko) didn’t know just how use­ful this func­tion­al­ity would be un­til I started liv­ing with an Ecobee in my house. This past sum­mer was so hot in Toronto, I found my­self fid­dling with the AC tem­per­a­ture con­stantly from my phone, while in bed. I also used the app nu­mer­ous times to turn on the AC a few hours ahead of com­ing back home from var­i­ous trips up north. My par­ents also have one at their cot­tage and use it to turn up the heat prior to ar­riv­ing at the cot­tage in the win­ter. The lat­est ecobee4 ver­sion is Alexa en­abled and of­fers voice con­trol. Amaz­ing prod­uct from a great Cana­dian com­pany! www.ecobee.com
