There's no need to buy a standalone Echo, Echo Dot or Tap device -- the Ecobee4 can handle all of the same Alexa commands.

Adjust the volume and other Alexa-related settings directly on the thermostat.

This model requires a C-wire for installation. If you don't have one, use the Power Extender Kit (PEK) that comes with your purchase.

Always consult a professional if you have questions about the installation.
