[Amazon.ca] $79 Ecobee SmartSensor 2 Pack

Purchased the Ecobee 5 recently and wanted to add two more sensors for my basement and and family room. (might also try and incorporate this into smart lights so will see how that goes)

I tested the use of the older Ecobee4 room sensor with my smart home stuff and it only seemed to send an occupancy alert every 10-15 minutes so it wouldn't be a good method to turn the lights on when entering the area, perhaps you could have it sense occupancy and turn the lights off if you have left the room for some time. These new sensors may also send alerts more frequently.

FYI, $59.93 at some Canadian Tire locations for the previous gen model. I was just able to select a store that had stock and ship it ($+4.99) to a location 400km away - near a store that didn't have stock.

Located near Brampton. DM me for details.
What's the difference between the old and new sensors?

They did a visual redesign on the new sensors from what I recall. Function wise they do the same thing

Yeah, it's a 10min polling rate with ST.

Some of these are defective and drain batteries quickly. Ecobee replaced two of my sensors for free due to this issue. The older gen sensors are solid.

Lastly, the new SmartSensor also has a larger battery compared to the Room Sensor. This allows the SmartSensor to last a couple years with a single CR2477 battery, compared to 12 months of the Room Sensor using the CR2032 battery.
I hate CR2477, they are too expensive, love my old sensors.

Nice find, this should be a post of its own.
