TORONTO — February 5, 2020 — Today, ecobee introduced Family Accounts, an easy way for families to stay connected. Family Accounts lets up to 15 family members to join and control a Home without sharing credentials. ecobee Home Owners can choose to invite Family Members to share access to their Home’s ecobee devices.
