The ecobee4 smart thermostat just dropped to its Black Friday price ahead of schedule

It’s universally accepted at this point that there are two smart thermostats that are the best in the business. One is from Nest, of course, and the other is the ecobee4 Smart Thermostat with Built-In Alexa. The ecobee model might not have quite as much name recognition, but it’s actually more capable in a number of ways. It’s also getting a big discount for Black Friday 2018, but you don’t need to wait until next week to take advantage. That’s right, the ecobee4 just dropped to its Black Friday price on Amazon!

ecobee4 Smart Thermostat with Built-In Alexa, Room Sensor Included: $199.00

Here’s more information from the product page:

  • SAVE MONEY: Homeowners save up to 23% annually on heating or cooling costs, plus ecobee pays for itself in under 2 years (compared to a hold of 72 degrees).

  • ROOM SENSORS: Place them in the rooms that matter the most and have the temperature balanced throughout your whole home. Measuring both occupancy and temperature, sensors signal your ecobee Smart Thermostat to automatically switch to the right mode for comfort when you’re home or for savings when you’re not. One Room Sensor included, 2-pack sold separately

  • EASILY INSTALL YOURSELF: It only takes about 30 minutes, thanks to an easy to follow installation guide and an in-app step-by-step walkthrough. Everything you need comes in the box, including a Power Extender Kit for homes with no common wire (C-wire).

  • CONTROL FROM ANYWHERE: Easily adjust your thermostat from wherever you are using your iOS (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch) or Android device. The ecobee mobile app is available in the App Store or on Google Play.

  • BUILT-IN ALEXA: Control your thermostat using your voice with built-in Alexa. Ask to play music, hear the news, set a timer, adjust the temperature, and so much more. Wifi connectivity is ieee 802.11 b/g/n at 2.4 GHz. Tip-make sure your HVAC panel is fully closed. Some systems will not turn on if the cover panel has not been closed properly
