Coming soon: A faster way to change your ecobee’s Heat/Cool/Auto mode!
byon March 21, 2016
We heard from you that you wished it took fewer steps to change your system mode. It will soon be easier to switch your system between Heat, Cool, Auto, Aux and Off!
Over the next month, we’ll be rolling out a new feature that allows you to just tap the system icon on the homescreen of your thermostat, web portal, iOS app or Android app to change your system mode.
When can I expect to see the change?
To make sure the roll-out goes smoothly, we’ll be taking a phased approach:
On your iOS app: Available now if you update to version 4.0.3
On your Android App: Coming Soon.
On your Thermostat/Portal: Coming Soon.
We’ll keep you updated as the new feature is rolled out!
How does it work?
On the homescreen of your thermostat or app, just tap the system icon.
A box will pop up showing your system modes.
If you don’t want to change the mode, just click outside of the box to exit.
To change the mode, just tap any of the options. The pop-up will close and icon will change to the mode you’ve selected.
