Best smart thermostat for multiple zones


For large homes or even two-bedroom apartments, smart thermostats for multiple zones are key to saving energy without turning some rooms into ovens or freezers. Most of the best smart thermostats can detect the temperature in the room where it’s installed, but bedrooms or other rooms with different insulation or windows are liable to differ significantly in temperature. That’s why you don’t want just any thermostat, but instead one like the ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium, which can pair with room sensors for total home awareness.

Below are all the multi-zone smart thermostats worth considering for your home. There’s even a model that works with AC-power systems like in-floor radiant heaters!
