Smart thermostats like the Nest Learning Thermostat and ecobee SmartThermostat are cool, but $250 is a whole lot of money to spend on a thermostat when many people don’t even bother to use most of the “smart” features they provide. If you’re just looking for a reliable model that you can control with your voice thanks to Alexa support, we’ve got just the thing. Check out the Honeywell Home RTH6580WF Wi-Fi 7-Day Programmable Thermostat on Amazon — it’s under $79 right now as opposed to $250!
