Which brand is the best? Do I have to use the same brand as my current one (traditional)?

Check reviews.

You'll need to confirm compatibility with your wiring.

I'm a big fan of Ecobee. Nest is also great.

Neither of those are on sale lol

Make sure to check compatibility before purchasing any smart thermostat.

My current t-stat is a Ecobee I got on clearance from Costo a few years back. Before that I took advantage of the $100 credit rebate from Enbridge and got the Honeywell Lyric which worked great for many years.

In terms of required wiring all these smart wifi thermostats require 5 wire because it needs constant power. If you don't have 5 wires but 4 there are adapters you can buy that you easily connect up on the side where your furnace is in the basement that will make your 4 wire setup work. My Ecobee came with this 4 wire to 5 adapter otherwise when I had my Honeywell I bought this off someone on kijiji for $10.

The other alternative is you can run a single wire from your furnace to your t-stat or new 5 wire harness for $25-30. I would just get the adapter and call it a day as you get full functionality from your t-stat and furnace.

Just a heads up, make sure you confirm the thermostat is compatible. I learned this the hard way. My new condo has a 120v fan coil unit, so only very select thermostats will work. Unfortunately I don't think any smart/wifi or programmable thermostats exist for my setup. Wish I can get one of these!

Yes, I’ve never come across a smart thermostat compatible with my fan coil system for my condo. I wish they made them. I keep monitoring threads like this one in case someone ever makes a reference to one.

Edit, I think I found one: https://www.mbtek.com/products/wifi-fan ... 9348320433

Oh nice find! I might actually buy this... just need to first find reviews. Is MBtek legit?

Thanks for this! Was about to hit order on it as the cheapest ones i can find all seem to be ~200 CAD or 150 if i import from the US.

Especially worrying that its still in "Pre-Order" after all this time.

Found another interesting one but even less sure about. https://www.airconet.net/shop
