How to connect ecobee thermostats

The Wi-Fi enabled ecobee Thermostats work with SmartThings to monitor and control your home's climate. The ecobee3 can also use its own remote sensors to monitor motion and temperature in different rooms to bring you comfort where you need it. The ecobee4 brings you the power of the Amazon Dot, built in for easy voice control of your home.

You first need to create an account with ecobee in order to connect ecobee Thermostats to SmartThings.


This article will tell you how to connect the following ecobee Thermostats:

  1. ecobee4 Smart Thermostat
  2. ecobee3 Smart Thermostat (pictured above)
  3. ecobee3 lite Smart Thermostat
  4. ecobee Smart Si Thermostat
  5. ecobee Smart Thermostat

Note: The ecobee3 and ecobee4 are compatible with additional room sensors, but the ecobee3 lite and other ecobee thermostats are not.
