    Good complement to the thermostat

    We live in a two-story house where the thermostat is in an upstairs hallway. This means that at any time during the year, the upstairs is always warmer than the downstairs rooms - both summer and winter. I bought 4 of these sensors to put in the rooms that are used the most. Because of the smart home/away and the follow me features, having the sensors seemed to be a must. They have worked relatively well, but I have had some issues with them. Ecobee is designed to sense when there is no occupancy at home and will automatically go into the away comfort setting. However, all sensors within the home must sense no movement/occupancy for a total of two hours before going into the cost saving mode. To me, that length of time seems to be too long. The other issue I have is that if you create a custom comfort setting, then the away feature does not work. Only when the thermostat is in the preloaded home and away settings does the smart home/away feature work. I feel both of these situations should be customizable by the owner. You also have to be careful where the sensors are placed within the room. Obviously if they are near a heat source, the temperature reading will be incorrect. Also, if in line with direct sun, the sunlight can cause them to indicate a false occupancy reading.

    A Necessity for larger one unit homes or upstairs

    I purchased the Ecobee 3 - absolutely the best. I was really taken with the additional remote sensor, which actually contains 3 sensors - temperature, humidity, and motion. It allows the thermostat to get a true picture of the climate in your home because, along with the base unit sensors, you have readings from multiple locations. I have 2 units, and I have 2 Ecobee 3s. Upstairs, the temperature is very tricky to manage - or should I say was tricky to manage. I purchased this additional pack of sensors because the bedrooms and bonus rooms have inconsistent temps. Adding 2 additional sensors increases the scope of my averages for the climate, and allows the Ecobee to know when more of the upstairs is occupied or not when determining what the experienced climate is - if I'm in my room and the temp in there is 78, but 75 in the other rooms, the AC pops on to cool me off. If you have a single unit in a larger home, or if you have an upstairs that has aim over the garage room or varying temps, these things will help your Ecobee be even more accurate and efficient in keeping an awesome climate in your home.

    Replaced our Nest with Ecobee, never going back.

    We are very happy with our ecobee4 and the sensors. It functions just like the Nest but better with more options such as Alexa, sensor for each room, includes two but I purchased 4 more. The sensors really work. We use the follow me feature and every room that is occupied is the temp we set. Pros: It works, it is fun, and saves on energy costs! Another pro is the sensors! I have sensors all over my house and use them to help get the most accurate average temperature reading of my house. I love the fact that they can detect if a room is unoccupied and therefor will focus on making sure the rooms that are occupied are at the desired temperature. The sensors can also be used as a motion detector. Amazing!!! Cons: the Nests app is more responsive and with little to no delay. The Ecobee app is delayed about 30 sec or more. I’m hoping they can fix that with future updates. Overall it's a fantastic product. If you want to upgrade your thermostat from Basic thermostat or even Nest like we did. I highly recommend this.

    I bought these extra sensors as a Christmas present for my husband. We've had the ecobee for a couple years and he's always wanted extra sensors. We have a 2 story, approx 4000 sq ft house so the extra temperature control is nice. We have one in our daughters bedroom which is always cooler being above the garage, one in our basement and one on the main level. They are motion censored to help even out the temperature and keep areas warmer when they are occupied. They were easy to add to the ecobee system. Every once in a while one goes offline due to a low wifi signal I think but it's always temporary. They can either be placed anywhere on the little stand, or there is something more permanent where you can install to the wall using a sticky tape that's included or drill a holder into the wall and snapping it into place. If you have a larger house I recommend adding more sensors to regulate the temperature better. We like our ecobee. It's user friendly and love that there's no monthly fee.

    For a smarter Thermostat

    I prefer the Nest over the Ecobee to be honest, but the Ecobee works with Apple's HomeKit. These satellite sensors aren't completely necessary, but they do add to the comfort of my home as they'll "follow" me around paying attention to where I'm at to keep the temp in the room(s) to my liking. Just a note, when I bought this pair, I received an email after adding them to my Ecobee thermostat account. There was a problem in their assembly which made the motion detection sensor not function properly. It needs the little 1/4 window to be in front of it. It wasn't aligned properly and so they sent out instructions to new owners of the sensors after they buy them. The fix is very simple and takes all of 2 minutes. Just pop open the casing and rotate the plastic front to align like it needs. Now they work great. Had they not emailed me, it would've taken a while for me to notice likely. Despite the above issue, if you want to improve your comfort around the house, go ahead and pick up a pair of these.

    Remotes extend and fine-tune ecobee3 performance

    I have installed three of these remotes (in addition to the one included with the ecobee3 theromstat), to extend the efficiency of the ecobee3. Now only the temperature in rooms that are occupied are considered in determining the temperature sensed by the thermostat. My thermostat is in a location that is convenient for seeing and accessing the thermostat, but it is a room that I rarely use. With the remotes, the temperature of rooms actually in use is averaged and used to determine whether more heating or cooling is required in the rooms where people actually are. From the thermostat, I can see at a glance what the temperature is in each room with a sensor and whether that room is occupied. Comfortable temperatures actually seem to follow me around the house. In reporting data provided by the thermostat, I can graphically see when temperatures were adjusted based on occupancy information.

    Multi Room Thermometer

    Like many larger single story homes ours has a single zone, and thus uneven heating and cooling. In prior homes we had multi-zones reconfigured/retrofitted... We purchased the ecobee3 and added four remote sensors (so there's a total of the thermostat plus 5 sensors) such that each bedroom, living room & kitchen/dining area are monitored. The result is "okay"... As there are no physical zones, the HVAC pumps AC or heat thrui all the ducts when it's on yielding somewhat uneven temperatures (nothing you can do about that without reconfiguring the house/system) but it does a great job of making the rooms more balanced and generally being within a single degree each other (i found it works best when I "disregard" the actual thermostat location reading and use all the other remote sensors for my At Home & Away settings and it works great; I use only our occupied bedroom sensors for the sleep settings)

    Great Add-ons for ecobee Thermostat

    One of the great features of the ecobee WiFi thermostat (version 3 in my case) is the ability to add sensors that you can place around your home to get the maximum comfort and maximum energy savings possible. I have a big house with 3 floors and 2 bedrooms are as far away from the furnace/air conditioner hub as you can be so they often are colder or warmer than the rest of the house. With the sensors, the ecobee averages the temperature of all sensors or you can manage the sensors to let some be inactive. Now, without rewiring or adding new ducts or another thermostat, I can let the bedroom sensors control the temperature and ensure that everybody is more comfortable. It's such a great idea.
