How do I connect my ecobee thermostat to Apple HomeKit?

You can connect to HomeKit either through the ecobee mobile app or through the Home app on your iPhone.

 Before proceeding, please ensure:

  • Your iPhone is running on iOS 11 or higher
  • Both your ecobee and iPhone are connected to the same 2.4G network
  • Your ecobee thermostat has a name assigned to it (on the thermostat screen, tap MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > PREFERENCES and tap "Thermostat Name")
  • The Wi-Fi signal strength on your ecobee is sufficient (you can check this on the thermostat by going into MAIN MENU > ABOUT > WI-FI)

Home app (iOS 11+)

1) Open the Home app on your iPhone homeapp1.jpg
