“The new ecobee3 lite delivers the many features of a premium smart thermostat – beautiful design, superior comfort and an intuitive customer experience – but it’s kinder to our customers’ wallets than leading competitors,” said Stuart Lombard, President and CEO of ecobee. “ecobee3 lite upholds our continued promise to make customer’s lives simpler and better.”
Ecobee3 lite features a beautiful and easy to use touchscreen interface and pays for itself in less than a year, says the company. It also integrates with Amazon Echo, Apple HomeKit, Samsung SmartThings, Wink and IFTTT.
“ecobee is committed to driving meaningful cost savings without compromising on quality, and ecobee3 lite is a great example of that innovation at work,” said Casey McKinnon, Vice President of Product at ecobee. “Ease of use, stunning design, interoperability and category-leading savings were our top priorities while developing ecobee3 lite, and we’re excited for consumers to experience these benefits at a better value than ever before.”
The ecobee3 lite launch is accompanied by a new mobile application from ecobee, which will be available on Apple and Android devices. The application includes a new Installation Wizard, providing homeowners with step-by-step installation support and videos in the palm of their hand.
