Where to start? (New V2 owner)

Well just won a v2 auction on eBay for $30 new. First off, is there any benefit of selling and getting v3? Secondly, where do I start? I have an ecobee that I will connect, but that is it

Welcome!

The consensus seems to be “no”, as long as connecting via wifi isn’t critical for you to put it in a central location.

What do you want to do?

I’m very satisfied with with Ecobee Suite. It lets me link the comfort settings to my ST mode (home / away / sleep), and shuts off the AC if I leave a door/window open.

Am I able to place it close to the router?

Here’s another good place to start which organizes SmartApps and Devices that can be integrated with your hub:
