Smart Thermostats assistance?

My house has 2 zones for heat. 1 does the kitchen, family rooms etc. The second does the 3 bedrooms. I was wondering what is the best smart thermostats to use. The Eccobee 3 looks interesting. The Nest and Honeywell. I like the Ecobee3 in the sense that it can monitor temperatures in a certain room with sensors. One room for some reason is colder by 2 degrees for some odd reason.

The Honeywell Red link line of thermostats supports wireless indoor temperature/humidity sensors.

The Honeywell Prestige IAQ is the best smart thermostat in my opinion but if you buy the Ecobee we can help with any questions that you may have.

A few questions that you might consider include...

What thermostats do you have installed at this time?
Are they 24 volt thermostats?
How many wires are run to the stat?
What terminals are in use at the existing stats?
Are you using a zone control board with 2 stats connected to it?

I think you got me baffled at the questions. I have Honeywell thermostats installed not the smart newer ones. How would I know voltage? wires to stat? Terminals meaning wires? stats?

Pop the cover and snap a pic of the model number and a pic of the thermostat wire connections to the stat and post these 2 pics.

Most Honeywell stats are only 24 volts but some are high voltage.
