4) If the HomeKit code did not generate in the previous step, select “Don’t Have a Code or Can’t Scan?”

If you’re experiencing issues pairing following the steps above, please ensure:

  • Your iPhone is running on iOS 11 or higher
  • Both your ecobee and iPhone are connected to the same 2.4G network
  • 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)

 

If issues persist, please contact our Support team for further assistance.
