Ecobee is a manufacturer of a smart thermostat that was born out of necessity. Like many truly great inventions, the ecobee smart thermostat was created to solve a problem.
Founder Stuart Lombard invented the ecobee after he realized 50% of home energy costs were related to heating and cooling. He tooled around with programmable thermostats, which he found to be unreliable when he came home to a freezing house.
Ecobee’s smart thermostats are compatible with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Echo, Samsung SmartThings, Wink and more.
