Reviews around tech support (4.30 of 5)

  • Have not decided to connect and lose function(s) or sell.
  • (I have to give them credit, their tech support was great)
  • Tech support said it would, but when I asked specific questions, or questioned an answer they provided, the next person to respond would ignore it, or blow it off, or otherwise leave it unsolved
  • The install was incredibly easy, and my home was not equipped with the infamous “C” wire
  • The idea having alexa built into the device is awesome; however their tech support sucks

Reviews around app (4.23 of 5)

  • It seems good on paper, but the app is buggy, and the unit itself is buggy
  • Love that it works with home kit and so far I've had no issues using the app or any features.
  • The app is really easy to use but it also incorporates well with the other apps.
  • The thermostat was very easy to setup....and has a great app to control your house's temperature when you are not home.
  • However, I must say the Alexa feature does not work quite as well as with my Echo Dot

Reviews around ecobee4 (3.92 of 5)

  • In our case, the ecobee4 is right next to an existing Amazon Echo, so I have disabled the Alexa functionality, but it is still controllable by Alexa and we are enjoying the new capabilities
  • I own the ecobee4 and regret not going with either a Nest or Ecobee3 and dedicated echo dot
  • Decided to try the Ecobee4 since my Nest loses it's mind at the worst possible times, 3 in the
  • The ecobee4 is obviously lacking the audio quality, but listening to music isn't one of the things we do with Alexa.
  • , the ecobee4 didn't support Echo Spacial Perception (ESP), which Alexa devices use to know which device you're closest to, if you have multiple.

Reviews around device (3.82 of 5)

  • However, the device itself doesn't have the same high-end finish of the Nests it was going to replace, and it instantly crashed and rebooted every time we tried to use the built in Echo
  • min.overall the device is amazing , alexa voice work great and all the features are just as described!!
  • this device is garbage and will be obsolete in 2-3 years, it’s not better than any wifi-enabled thermostat, there are many solid ones3
  • UPDATED REVIEW!So the folks from ecobee called me over this review to figure out if the device was flawed
  • I like the graphical interface on the device these smart devices are now becoming popular in all things.

Reviews around sensor (3.50 of 5)

  • Another flaw: It has this great sensor for another room
  • I also wish the extra sensors were cheaper than $80 for 2.
  • Another flaw: It has this great sensor for another room
  • Nest also lacked remote sensors, which was key because temperatures in different rooms within the HVAC zone are often quite a bit different.
  • Also, the lilbee sensor is great for knowing if my daughters room is to cold or to hot while the other parts of the house may be okay.

Reviews around thing (3.28 of 5)

  • The worst thing so far is that the EcoBee4 seems to lock up and not follow my set schedule.
  • Better than the nest I use to have and work flawless with Alexa and smart things.
  • There are so many positive things I could say about the Ecobee4
  • Nest was simple and intuitive and just worked--this thing has been a nightmare from day one

Reviews around datum (3.22 of 5)

  • The replacement thermostats proved there was no wiring faults as they worked just fine when installed.
  • It takes one month before Ecobee generates a data log for energy usage and system performance, but my power company has very good data on my usage for several years that I can access.
  • When the website goes down, which seems to happen once a month in the middle of the afternoon, you lose data for that time frame
  • The app is very easy to navigate and also they have an amazing dashboard on Ecobee’s website that allows you to get some great data history on usage

Reviews around address (2.85 of 5)

  • However the sound quality is tinny - nowhere as good as from a Dot, and it seems to start by itself some times
  • However, I must say the Alexa feature does not work quite as well as with my Echo Dot
  • When there was continued failure to connect to home WiFi, the Rep told me to call my internet provider and get them to issue a static IP address rather than dynamic IP.
  • Other than the static IP address for my problem of not being able to connect at all, there seems to be no other workaround right now
  • The internet provider said it was limiting to go to static IP address and why was I letting a 250 dollar device dictate things when they are working for everything else

Reviews around background noise (2.73 of 5)

  • Even wth ZERO background noise, I have to SHOUT to get it to hear me
  • Good customer support as he had to call the company a couple of times during the installation process
  • the alexa part is very bad, you have to be directly in front of unit with no background noise for it to respond
  • However, I must say the Alexa feature does not work quite as well as with my Echo Dot
  • So if there is any background noise, it does not hear you unless you yell.

  • it did lose its internet connection a few times, but last time I took it off the wall to cut its power and put it back on, worked ever since.

Reviews around ip (1.44 of 5)

  • The one downfall would be that it took some router manipulation to set the unit to a static IP and ensure Alexa had consistent connection to stream any music
  • Technical support was on point and advised me to setup a static IP.
  • The internet provider said it was limiting to go to static IP address and why was I letting a 250 dollar device dictate things when they are working for everything else

Reviews around hour (1.00 of 5)

  • It took me an additional 2-3 hour to complete the process because it would not work until I finished registering it.
  • After a fruitless hour on the phone with an Ecobee tech, I decided to disable the voice system, disconnect Amazon and rely on the smart phone app for my thermostat settings.
  • I spent a total of 4 hours on the phone with tech support, the first 2 hours were painful and unproductive, until I called back in to get a different support rep
  • This is a crappy product, service is terrible spending hours on hold waiting for tech support, you bait and switch by telling me I could get a large rebate only to tell me that I can't, and I have to stand in front of it and yell at it to get Alexa to work!TERRIBLE in ALL respects!
  • Worst support on the planet .3 hours and 6 minutes on hold waiting for tech support ,no one ever answered
