The remote sensors keep a room at the right temperature, and knows when the rooms are empty, it then optimizes the temperature control system to help save money and energy. Ecobee3 claims that an average user can save up to 23 percent on their heating and cooling bills per year by using the smart Wi-Fi thermostat in their home.
