More than just a smart thermostat
Smart thermostats allow you to control your thermostat from your phone, and even learn your home temperature preferences to make automatic adjustments to keep you comfortable. But here's where the ecobee4 gets even smarter: it has innovative room sensors that can detect hot or cold areas of your home to increase comfort for every room, year-round.
Amazon Alexa Voice Service
Now featuring Amazon Alexa Voice Service, you can speak directly to your ecobee4 from across the room using far-field technology. Ask Alexa to do things like: set the temperature, read the news, set a timer, and more.
The ecobee4 lets you monitor and control the temperature in your home anytime, anywhere, on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. And when you're home, simply speak directly to your ecobee4 without the need for another device.

What’s a C-wire?
A c-wire (also referred to as a common wire) is a low voltage power wire that many modern thermostats require for their features to work. This ecobee4 requires a c-wire or installation of the power extender kit (included) to work.
Many older homes don’t have a c-wire because mercury and battery-powered thermostats didn’t require one. Therefore, it is important that you make sure that you have a c-wire and that your HVAC system is compatible with ecobee's thermostat. To determine if you have a c-wire, please remove your old thermostat's cover plate. You should see several wire terminals labeled with letters. If a wire is connected to the “C” terminal, you have a c-wire.
If you do not have a c-wire on your existing thermostat, you maybe able to substitute an extra wire or the “G” wire for the c-wire. You can also hire an HVAC contractor to help you install the c-wire and the thermostat.
