† Per U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), April 8, 2019
eco+ consists of 5 revolutionary features.
Adjust the temperature for humidity
ecobee detects fluctuations in indoor humidity to ensure your home always feels like the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat. This keeps your home energy efficient and comfortable even in periods of unusually high or low humidity.
Schedule Assistant monitors your thermostat schedule. When it isn’t matching up with your actual routine, Schedule Assistant recommends a new schedule—keeping you more comfortable when you’re home and reducing wasted energy when you’re away.
Smart Home & Away
Smart Home & Away makes your home more efficient and comfortable. It works by automatically adjusting the temperature for energy savings when it detects you’ve left, and quickly restoring your comfort settings when you come back.
Time of Use
Time of Use can save you money by intelligently precooling or preheating your home at times of day when electricity is less expensive while reducing heating or cooling when electricity is costlier. If your electricity rate varies based on the time of day, eco+ can help shift your energy consumption to when electricity is more affordable and cleaner—and that’s good for you, your community, and the planet.
Community Energy Savings
Community Energy Savings (CES) makes slight temperature adjustments to your thermostat when electricity demand in your community peaks. If you're part of one of these energy savings programs, these adjustments will be minor and infrequent but can have big impacts on your community—helping you to consume cleaner energy and reduce strain on the electricity grid.
