Its been that price for a while.
You're better off PM with home depot to get 10% off instead of 10% off the difference with BB
With HD you should get $224 and with BB should get 244

Where do you see it for $249? I know there was mention if you are lucky that the sticker price hasn't changed yet but its a big YMMV.

Ecobee is a cool gadget but still needs work. I have had one for 4 months and battled with it a few times. Much like the launch of iPhone.

They finally got ride of the unhappy face cloud that was stuck on the weather forecast.

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

It sounds like you probably have electric heating with a thermostat per room?

Ecobee, Nest and similar are usually for houses with one thermostat (or in some cases, one thermostat per floor). They use low voltage (24v) power to send signals to a furnace or heat pump central air system.

Apartments with one thermostat per room (usually using baseboard heaters) mostly work at line voltage (120v), and the thermostat just decides whether power goes to the heater or not. You can't directly connect an Ecobee or Nest to these systems as the voltages are incompatible.

You can use a relay and transformer, either in the wall or in the baseboard heater, to use a low-voltage thermostat with a line-voltage heater, such as this: https://www.aartech.ca/rc840t-120-aube- ... ormer.html

Installation is slightly more tricky and shouldn't be attempted if you don't know what you're doing (as you're dealing with 120v systems).

Another solution is to instead upgrade to a more capable thermostat designed for line voltage systems. These typically work better than low-voltage thermostats, as they can switch the heater on and off much more quickly (the systems controlled by low voltage thermostats can't usually be cycled more frequently than every 5 minutes, so they don't provide a quick cycle option). Fast cycling of the heater allows the system to keep the temperature very consistent, and without the expansion/contraction noises from the electric heaters constantly warming and cooling every few minutes.

The best smart thermostats I know of for line voltage systems are by Sinope and Casa:

http://www.sinopetech.com/en/product-ca ... hermostat/

https://casaconnect.com/en/shop/smart-thermostat-caleo/

Both of these can be controlled remotely and can be integrated into certain home automation systems. They don't have the learning capabilities of the Ecobee or Nest, but they're still a big step up from a basic line-voltage thermostat.
