I replaced 6 older style sensors with these about a year ago. No dropped connections and still on the factory battery. Definitely worth the upgrade at this price. The new ones are deeper and don't blend in as nicely on the wall, if that's important to you.

ok a few things to note hereFrownthese are my opinions and nothing more, take with a grain of salt)

cliff notes:
1. follow me = doesn't work, not good for saving energy or anything for that matter
2. sensors are great if you know how and what to use them for
3. everything is about the setup and not just plug and play.
4. new sensors battery life seems to be not as good as the old one's (might have changed with recent productions, but people complained that the battery would die in the first three months when it first came out.)
5. functions are hidden in system but can find most functions on thermostat. hard to know what does what

Long Read but worth It (trust me)

my current setup = ecobee 3 and 5 sensors setup with 2 extra incase any of the sensors go bad.

setup for me:
1. open all vents in house and install sensors where you think you might need them. start off with a min 3 sensors plus thermostat
2. cool house and check each sensors temp - reading should be + or - 1-2 degrees
3. in our case, thermostat is about 6 degrees or more colder that all other sensors and all other sensors read about 4 degrees off from each other.
4. any sensors that is reading more colder/hotter then current temperatures, adjust vents to restrict air flow to that room and test again.
5. repeat process until temps are close to each other or you get tired of testing and just give up.
6. if current temperatures cannot be close to each other, it's ok as time of day, sunlight, insulation will factor into room temp differences.
7. if on a separate level house (2 floors or more, set even temp per floor)
8. once everything is set up, let system stay the way it is, and test for the next couple of days to make sure temp on each sensor is to your satisfaction.
9. once done, continue to next steps.

setting up cooling comfort settings:
this is where it get's a little interesting as after the fist setup, most will leave it at that and say it's good, but you need to customize it a little more as different events will change our cooling needs.
if you leave this stock and set the temp on the thermostat, it will average all sensors and make the room with the most people hotter while making the other rooms ice cold.
Home, Sleep, Away, is the default settings but you need to add to this.

1. go to your comfort settings and tap on Home
2. set temp for home
3. under sensors, pick sensors that you want to be averaged in this comfort setting
4. save settings
5. add other settings depending on your needs and name them accordingly (kids Gaming, Visitors, Party)

doing it this way, you have full control of what sensors are averaged and not trapped by having the thermostat average all sensors.
yes it might not be a friendly way to do it as you have to change it depending on your needs, but at least you are only cooling the room your in and being comfortable at the same time.
we have this thermostat on google and just tell google to change it to the comfort setting we want

side note :
for the person that was asking about the auto fan on to help cool down the house without having the ac/heater on.
you can click on the setting and tap on the fan icon to turn it from auto to on or:
1. go to settings and then system
2. click on fan and enter a number from 0-60
3. what this setting does is turn on the in home fan, without turning on the ac/heater for x amount of min every hour.
this will have the internal fan cycle on and off every x amount of min every hour, even when your not home to circulate the air and try to prevent stale air inside your house.

hope this helps some, have ecobee and happy setup. it takes some time, but so worth it.
Great deal. Thank you OP.

EDIT: 8% cash-back is available but I'm not allowed to say where.

Can non-Ecobee HomeKit temp sensors be used instead of these on the Ecobee thermostat?

I have the old model of these (3) with the ecobee 3, and it's awesome on my split-level. Motion sense on the remote sensors is so cool. I walk down to my downstairs to watch TV and it detects my motion and auto adjusts the averaged room temp to include that sensor and the furnace kicks on Smilie

In for 2, one for each bedroom and one for the open living/dining/kitchen area. Leaning towards placement in the kitchen. The hallway with the ecobee proper is off the living room, so the kitchen is farthest away... Plus it gets hot when you're cooking. Anyone have thoughts on placement in the kitchen? Good or bad?

I find that we can't use the motion sensor option as it's just not practical. However, we do have these (8) in all the rooms and have certain rooms "active" during the day/night.
