ecobee vs Google Nest

The ecobee and Nest are two of the best-selling smart thermostats available on the market today. What should you choose, ecobee or Nest? Both are typically the same price depending on where you decide to buy or different sales promotions. The biggest difference between the Nest and the ecobee lies in adjusting your smart device. While the Nest uses a dial mechanism that you turn manually to change the temperature, the ecobee has a sleek square touchscreen design. Appearing from a distance with a minimalist design displaying the temperature, humidity, and if the unit is set to cooling or heating, the ecobee comes to life as you approach to provide more options. You can then access various settings, set schedules, and adjust the temperature. When it comes to the Nest and ecobee’s smart home compatibility there are some differences. The ecobee smart thermostat works with Alexa and has a built-in Alexa speaker which allows for interconnected smart home setups with your other Amazon/Alexa devices while also being able to play music. The ecobee also has smart security devices for its platform. So you can easily combine your smart thermostat with a security system via one convenient app. Once set up, your Ecobee can provide you with energy reports that detail your consumption and show possible.
