The ecobee Smart Thermostat is a WiFi enabled programmable thermostat that has a full-color LCD touch screen and easy-to-use interface. Our product integrates heating, cooling, ventilation, energy management and utility demand response.
The ecobee iPhone and iPod Touch application allows you to control all your Smart Thermostats from anywhere at anytime. It looks and operates just like your ecobee Smart Thermostat at home. You can now use this application to remotely adjust the thermostat’s temperature, schedule or update a vacation event, change the system and/or fan operating settings and receive alerts. Load the application and when prompted use your existing ecobee web portal user name and password to log in.
What's New in Version 2.3.1
Fixed display issue for iPad running iOS7
Love Ecobee, but the app needs work
The ecobee provides several conveniences and money saving options. It's been working great for us. As someone who works from a home office, my schedule changes daily. This gives me the convenience of adjusting the thermostat for days I'm on the road and for days I'm in the office all day. There are several limitations to this app that I think could be improved upon (which is why I gave it four stars). It would be nice to change the program schedule through the app. Other than that, great device.
I use this app on my iPhone to control my Ecobee smart thermostat - which is cool. I think Ecobee should have adopted the iOS style interface instead of copying the interface from the actual thermostat (thus forcing landscape only operation). When in portrait switch up the UI! I also don't understand why an iPad version is missing, perhaps they just don't have the staff to support it yet. Overall it works well and I can control my thermostat from anywhere hence 4 stars instead of 3. Add portrait + cool stuff on iPad and get 5 stars.
This worked great when we first installed it. It's the only one that works with a whole-house humidifier.
However, this app hasn't been working for a couple of weeks now. The actual thermostat no longer functions properly either. When changing temperature, the app and thermostat will slide to change temp, but pop right back where it was. For instance, if current temp is 72 and I try to change to 68, I can slide the control, but when I take my finger off, it pops right back to 72. Up or down, no matter what the attempted change, just does not work anymore.
Doesn't work 99% of the time!
Called for support, service updated, but still doesn't work. Tried hard restart on phone for app, tried deleting and reinstalling the app -- doesn't work!
