Ratings and Reviews
I really like this product, and I’ve had it for more than 3 years!
I installed my ecobee 2 more than 3 years ago. I did have an issue with the first remote sensor, but after contacting support, they sent me an additional one and it works flawlessly. I relocated the original sensor to a room adjacent to the thermostat and it now works as expected also. I have had times where I could not connect with my thermostat via the iPhone app, but I could not connect with other apps at my home at that same time, indicating that my very poor internet connection was temporarily down. I can find no fault with the ecobee app, and I have found their support to be extremely good. They talked me through an issue that was similar to the “learning” that a competing product performed that I did not want. I would certainly recommend this product, and would definitely buy another if I ever need a new thermostat! However, it seems unlikely that I will need a new one as this one does everything I want it to and more. Additionally, I find this product much more cosmetically pleasing on the wall than other similar products. The LED display is not too bright in the dark, yet bright enough to easily read in daylight.
Worse and worse with every update
When I bought this product several years ago it worked fine. Really. Always connected, fonts contrasty, right size, simple and logical interface. Nothing fancy, just right. It looked like the company hired good professionals to write it. Then the updates started to come. Good Lord! One worse then another. Fonts get smaller, sometimes you cannot see light gray font on the white background, interface got less logical, suddenly it would ask for a password, etc. And if that would be not enough recently it started to just hand there forever not connecting.... When I bough it it worked so good that I did a foolish thing to recommend it to many friends. Now I get calls from them when it does not work, or their mothers when they need to change something and dont remember which screen. Looks like company decided to save money, fired the developers and hired a stupid cousin of a their bookkeeper daughter-in-law from 8th grade... So, dont make my mistake - if you bought it you have no choice but suffer for your naivete, but God forbid you recommend anybody else to buy this... And to the Ecobee programmers - go back to school, guys. Or not - nobody who bought this would buy newer hardware version anyway....

Useful but could be more friendly
It is very handy to be able to adjust our home thermostat from the bed or out and about. The Thermostat provides lots of information and It has quite a bit of flexibility. It works well.
The main thing I would like to see changed is the UI readability. Increase the size of the temperatures along the right hand side when one is trying to change the temperature. And change the background color for the temperature from yellow to something darker. White numbers on the yellow background are hard to read.
The overall menu system is difficult to navigate and not intuitive. For example, when you open the app you’re greeted with some numbers and some symbols, but it is not at all clear what they mean. There’s no explanation that this is the current temperature, or this is the current setting, etc. say, you want to change the current setting, what do you do? It’s not clear from this page what you would do. Perhaps you want to change the schedule, how would you do it? It’s not clear. There really is nothing clear about this app at all. So, while the unit is pretty good, the app needs a lot of work.
