March 2, 2011: ecobee Releases Android App for Its Internet-Enabled Smart Thermostat
The ecobee Android app looks and operates just like the ecobee Smart Thermostat and works on any Android device with OS 2.0 and up. Users can remotely adjust the thermostat’s temperature; schedule or update a vacation event; change the system and fan operating settings; and receive alerts.
“Our customers expect to be able to access their ecobee Smart Thermostats from anywhere across a wide variety of mobile platforms,” said Stuart Lombard, ecobee founder and CEO. “In response to the rapid adoption of Android devices and the many requests from our loyal customers, we have launched our free Android app to make it even easier for our customers to save energy without sacrificing their comfort.”
ecobee also offers a free iPhone app which the company says has generated thousands of downloads to date.
The Android app is available for download at the Android Market at https://market.android.com/details?id=com.ecobee.mobile, or at the ecobee website at www.ecobee.com.
