Tired of high energy costs? It might be time to consider installing a smart thermostat. Most smart thermostats use algorithms to learn your family’s routines and temperature preferences and automatically adjust the temperature for you.
The truth is, not all smart thermostats are created equal. Some models offer better automation and ease of use than others. Below are our top five smart thermostat picks for 2021.
Ecobee Smart Thermostat with Voice Control
The Ecobee Smart thermostat with voice control blends a simple interface with precise programming. It learns your heating and cooling preferences over time and adjusts the programs accordingly.
Equipped with a single remote sensor, it works best when placed in a lesser-used part of the house. When the sensor detects activity, it will average the temperature from the sensor and the thermostat to cool your home to a uniform temperature.
Honeywell Home T9
Honeywell invented the forerunner to the thermostat in 1886 and now offers multiple smart thermostats. The Honeywell Home T9 smart thermostat is sleek in style and is easy to use for manual operation and is easily programmable. As with most smart thermostats, it learns your heating and cooling habits and adapts accordingly.
The interface defaults to a display of the room temperature, but if you press the screen, it reveals a menu of options. It also can integrate information from remote sensors.

Honeywell Home T5
The Honeywell Home T5 is one of Honeywell’s lower-priced options, but still offers plenty of utility including a touch screen, vacation scheduling, and geofencing. You can override scheduling with a hold function for days when there is a break from a typical routine like a holiday. The caveat here is that it does not come equipped with the ability to learn your routine and adapt.
Google Nest Learning Thermostat
The Google Nest Learning Thermostat has excellent capabilities for the automation of heating and cooling and offers ample smart features that enhance functionality, including an occupancy sensor, and geofencing. Geofencing turns the temperature up or down when you leave or return home.
Schneider Electric WiserAir
While the Schneider Electric WiserAir smart thermostat is not the most automated smart thermostat on the market, it still offers plenty of smart features such as voice control and an occupancy sensor. It can be tricky to connect to Wi-Fi, but its manual controls are quite easy to use. A unique feature of the Schneider Electric WiserAir thermostat is that it casts a halo-shaped light on the wall around the thermostat which changes color and pulses to indicate whether it is heating or cooling.
