E3 on it's own, with the native app is already "perfect" for my needs, but with ST via CoRE; it's even more versatile :)

I wonder which private company or companies got the contract to install, and how much money is transferring hands. Call me a pessimist, but every time the government tries something new, it just ends up being a big waste of money. They should just let consumers buy thermostats and send the upc code for a rebate like they do in the States.
They already do that through Embridge Gas
https://www.enbridgegas.com/homes/manag ... -programs/

This is the next level. Pretty sure the Ontario Government is trying to do anything and everything to Wynne back voters, probably not going to happen but I'll take the freebee anyway - if they're going to waste money, waste it on me!

So people in the know: Nest or Ecobee?
NEST > ECOBEE.

I've used the 2 products (nest 3 and ecobee lite), nest is a way better hardware.

Just went through the whole signup process, took a while (with few of those glitches showing up), but managed to get to the Congratulations page.

Anyway to answer this incorrectly besides not having either a centralized a/c and furnace? I don't know which house wouldn't have one.

Ok got confirmation screen.

Fingers crossed now.

I heard Ecobee is better for Apple users and Nest is suited for Android?

For those that didn't get a confirmation email (neither did I), I just tried signing up a second time and the website actually recognized my email is already in the system. so hopefully it's just their email server that's borked and we're still signed up.

Did you consent to receiving future updates? I signed up three times and it keeps taking the same email address. But i did not check the box giving consent to receive future updates...

Signed up but didn't get confirmation email.

So tried it with different email. and still no confirmation email.

called the rep, they said they can't check right now as their system is overloaded and to call back later.
