Ecobee sensors

I have an Ecobee 3.

If the thermostat is in one room, but the main room of the house is on the other side of the building and often seems cooler, would the ecobee sensor be a good buy? It would keep the temp in the main room set properly but would other rooms in the house end up being warmer?

Like the room the thermostat is in? The furnace can't send the heat only to one area so I'm not sure what the sensors do to compensate.

Without active dampers, the rest of the house will warmer.

Turn on furnace fan to circulate air in the house will even out temperature a bit.

That's what I thought

I should put some thermometers out and see if there is much of a difference anyway, it could just be one person in the house just feels colder than everyone else
