Don’t think is discontinued yet. Canadian Tire just didn’t want to sell you at price matched price.
Well I kept (and spent) the $30 promo card after they refunded my purchase so jokes on them.

I contacted ecobee
Canadian Tire claims ecobee 4 is discontinued and they won't be getting anymore stock. Is that true?
if so, when is a new ecobee coming out?

I did it, the Ecobee is OK, but still better than the nest. The recovery function is really the only thing I care about in a thermostat.
The Nest also has the equivalent feature to Ecobee's "Smart Recovery", it's called "Early On". I actually prefer my own settings, because I have don't trust their "heuristics".

I'm curious what you like better about the ecobee? I've been using Nest since launch, so I'm wondering what I'm missing... I also have the nest cameras and protects, and heavily invested in the google ecosystem, so I probably won't be switching anytime soon, but would welcome your opinion...
Based on what I've read, the Ecobee has all the features of the Nest and more. One basic feature that my old dumb Honeywell has that the Nest still doesn't support: Fan Operation Schedules. Instead, it has a static daily interval that doesn't even differentiate between weekdays & weekends. Also, their heat/cool "scheduled events" can only be set 1-hour apart, not granular enough. The Ecobee's interface also looks much more useful, where you can see most relevant infos in one glance. The Nest is all about form over function, a good purchase for people who would put eyelashes on their car's head lights. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes
