Good price. I would love to jump on this deal but i should probably buy an Ecobee3 thermostat first. I have been holding out on a deal for a while.

if you need a remote sensing unit the ecobee3 makes sense. Which is why I ended up buying it. My track home had the thermostat installed in a crappy place so I really needed that remote sensor. Nest didn't have an option and the other brands costed just as much as the ecobee3 once you factor in the remote sensor. If you don't need remote sensor, next would work fine as well.

in so cal, they finally got the utilities rebate going for $125 off.

I am still an amateur user of Ecobee 3 but I have two of them in my house mostly due to rebate. I also have a total 4 remote sensors but only use 1 currently. The key thing to remember is that this won't take place of zoning. In fact, it just averages out temperature where you have the sensors and depending on setting it will only do so if there is occupancy. Anyway, I am not impressed. It seems to lose signal easily and in the end one of the rooms (will be too warm or cold). For example, my main sensor is in the master and remote in kids room. Kids room is 3 degrees cooler. My system seems to run so that the two rooms averages out but in variably master is much warmer. It's just the nature of the beast unless you have zoning. Just wanted to share my experience which has been mehh so far.

You might want to use those sensors after all just in case. Bought the ecobee 3 thermostat and 2 additional sensors around this time last year and they worked great till a month ago when 2 of the sensors which came from the same box started showing occupied 24/7. Not a good thing as follow me is enabled in our system making the thermostat think someone is always there. We even made them face the wall and still showing occupied. Stuck them on the wall side by side with the main thermostat and main thermostat reports unoccupied and both sensors still showing occupied. Reported the problem to ecobee and they are replacing them. Trying to get a hold of customer support really takes a long time but they are very helpful.

the averaging only works if you set the ecobee that way. Otherwise it's set to hit that target temp for any occupied space

Do you have to use wireless vents that open and close? How does it control which rooms get heating or cooling unless you have vents that do that? Thanks.

did you get you replacement, i had the same issue and spend almost a week to try to get a replacement, finally they approve and said the sensor is on back order... though they are available on their website.
Their customer service response time is really slow, no update provided unless you keep asking...

You can configure it a few different ways to improve comfort. Ignore other areas to give occupied areas the desired temp at the expense of others. It can also run the fan to better balance the house overall. This is no substitute for true zoning but works fairly well in our two story + basement house.

I just picked up this deal to add to my existing thermostat plus three sensors mostly because it's interesting to see the data from them.

Haven't arrived yet. Got an email with an RMA or something in it. How do you see if it's backordered? I tried searching online and I never saw problems with the sensors being reported in forums. Looks like it's not an isolated problem then. All I know is both sensors just started doing it and they both came from the same box. Sensor that came with the unit works fine. And yes, wait times is more than 45 mins just to get a hold of someone. They also obviously are not based from the US.
