I just bought this for my new house. I had the base model (white) NEST in my previous house, which is comparably priced. First week of use, I much prefer the Nest. Much simpler interface and app is more useful. Alexa integration on the ecobee is clunky and unstable. I’ve had to unplug it twice to get alarms to shut off. It regularly has trouble processing commands. The smart sensor seems to lose the connection if it isn’t within 15-20 feet. I’ll keep it through the winter to give it a fair shake.
