How do room sensors work?

Most thermostats only read the temperature in one place (usually the hallway) which can make other rooms uncomfortable. Wireless room sensors help detect the temperature in the rooms that are occupied to manage hot and cold spots. That’s how we provide comfort throughout the home.

 

Once your ecobee is paired with a room sensor, you’ll be able to use the Follow Me feature to to detect the temperature in the rooms that are occupied. That’s how we manage hot and cold spots for comfort throughout the home. To make your ecobee even smarter about saving energy, sensors also use the Smart Home/Away feature to automatically enable the setting that keeps energy use low when it senses no one is home.
