I took advantage of the $100 rebate a little while back. Went with the Ecobee. Installation was super simple, the only issue is the common wire. I didnít have one running from my furnace to the old thermostat. So I had to do that. Luckily my thermostat is basically right above the furnace so even that wasnít too bad.

I like the ecobee because it comes with a remote sensor you can place anywhere in your home. The unit tries to accommodate for the sensor and the temperature at the thermostat. Neat little feature.

Also really easy to setup or change the schedule. I find it it be quite user friendly and the unit and the sensor can detect motion so I can see if my son is in the house or not, aka poor mans security feature.
