by on April 24, 2015

Since launching last September, the ecobee3 smarter wi-fi thermostat has won media accolades and awards, and ranks as the highest-rated smart thermostat across Apple StoreBest Buy, and Home Depot.

But we’re not resting on our laurels – we’re continuing to innovate with the goal of delighting our customers. As of today, all ecobee3 customers have received a free update to firmware version 3.6, which brings the most highly anticipated customer-requested features to ecobee3 thermostats, mobile apps, and web portal.

In addition, we have launched new apps and features:

Comfort and style, reimagined

ecobee offers support for Apple Watch from day one. Monitor and control your ecobee thermostat right from your wrist using Apple Watch glances and app.

  • View the thermostat name, current indoor temperature, desired temperature, remote sensor data and whether your heating or cooling is on/off
  • Quickly adjust desired temperature, switch your thermostat to Home/Away or resume your regular schedule, and change fan to On / Auto

Information at a glance

The updated ecobee3 mobile app for iOS now includes a Today Widget, making it even easier for you to monitor your home from your iPhone. You no longer have to open the app to view the most important information at a glance, including:

  • How recently your thermostat information was updated
  • Current room temperature and desired temperature
  • System mode, system status, and any currently active Holds
  • Current temperature, participation status, and connectivity status of all remote sensors paired with your ecobee3
