TORONTO — ecobee, together with parent company Generac Power Systems Inc., announced its latest line of smart thermostats can now be integrated with Generac home standby generators, creating a single energy management hub for the home. Through this new integration, ecobee customers can incorporate their home energy management into a central, easy-to-use interface that can quickly display that their generator is ready to power on in a power outage. 

Through the new integration, ecobee thermostat owners who also own Generac home standby generators can easily see the status of the generator and remedy potential issues. Customers can monitor the status of their generator in real time via the generator icon on the thermostat. The ecobee unit will also display a full screen message in the event of an alert on the generator, notifying a homeowner and displaying their preferred dealer’s contact information. 

The integration is now available on ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium and Smart Thermostat Enhanced units and is compatible with all connected home standby generators from Generac to all customers with an active Mobile Link account. Customers will see the new integration option appear in their Mobile Link app and can choose to participate with the click of a button. Customers can also choose their notification settings on their thermostat or opt out at any time from within the Mobile Link app. For more information, visit
