I just purchased the Ecobee4 thermostat through a company that works with Columbia Gas of Ohio for $ 124 plus free shipping. They also have a couple options for the Nest as well. Lowest price right now I see is $ 199. It’s possible other states are running the same deal.
Ordinary thermostats read the temperature in one room which can make your favorite rooms uncomfortable. The ecobee4 works with remote sensors to deliver the right temperature in the rooms that matter most. The ecobee4 thermostat uses thousands of data points to make intelligent and personalized heating and cooling decisions to save money on energy costs, improve heating and cooling performance, and ultimately improve comfort.
Got these yesterday while looking for some cheap smart outlets that works without a hub with Echo, seems pretty nice for the price. Doesn’t have an "away" mode but does have energy monitoring and seems pretty compact.
