- QuestionDoes this remote themostat have batteries or does the unit plug into the wall electric outlet? If it uses batteries, are they traditional AA OR AAA? Do they have to be replaced or recharged? (10 Answers)Answers
The remote sensor use small 3V coin batteries. Those batteries will late up to 3 to 4 years. The ecobee will notify you when the batteries are almost dead. The Main Thermostat is wired directly to the heating and cooling equipment. It gets power from there.

- QuestionIs the remote line of site or is it wireless in the truest sense? If you place it in a room away from the main unit does it have to physically be in line of site to get it to function properly? (10 Answers)Answers
The remote does not have to have line of site to the main unit. I have one in my basement with the thermostat on the main floor and it works perfectly. The manually mentions RF exposure so most likely that is how it is communication with the sensors, not over wifi. The ecobee itself does have a wifi connection of course for you to be able to access it remotely.
