There are many Smart Thermostats on the market today that offer users the ability to improve comfort, reduce energy use, and monitor properties for system failures. Offering internet and smart device connections allows users to manage settings and check conditions from almost anywhere at any time.
While most offer the same basic options and abilities, some go beyond the standard and offer options and designs that make them stand out in the crowd. We have tested dozens of different products in real-world applications and have chosen the following as our Best in Class.

A Smart Thermostat with voice control learns your home’s unique energy profile and your occupancy schedule, enhancing the way you experience the comfort and saving you money on your energy bill.
Ordinary thermostats read the temperature in just one room—usually the front hallway. Understandably, they can struggle to deliver comfort in the rest of the home.
Pair your Ecobee smart thermostat with up to 32 sensors to detect both temperature and occupancy throughout your home. Each Smart Sensor you add increases your smart thermostat’s ability to deliver comfort in the rooms that matter most and better balance out hot or cold spots.
Proliphix IMT550C Thermostat and HVAC Controller.
One of the few Smart Thermostats on the market today that does not require an Internet connection for most all operations. The IMT550 is not reliant on a manufacturers web portal. Its built in web server allows access to all settings and configurations through a direct local area network connection. You may also connect directly to the device from a remote location by using port forwarding to its internal static IP.
Hard wired with CAT5 cable for network connection.
The IMT Series of Internet-Managed Energy Controllers now gives you greater choice and flexibility to add HVAC and equipment monitoring and control to your facilities. The IMT550C connects with a Cat-5 Ethernet cable for traditional installation or in areas where wireless signal strength may be degraded by environmental influences. The IMT550C thermostat can handle up to 3 stage heat and 2 stage air conditioning.
Additionally, the IMT550C supports three external wired sensors which can be used to sense temperature or dry contact closures from external equipment. Each of these sensors can provide independent alarms via email or text message notification when pre-set threshold conditions are exceeded. Two independently scheduled auxiliary relays are also supported to enable customers to control additional equipment.
