How do I stop Alexa from listening? Is there a Privacy Mode?

If you want your ecobee4 to stop listening to you, you can turn off the built-in microphone and activate Privacy Mode by tapping the microphone icon on your thermostat.


From there, just select “Microphone OFF”.



You will see the microphone icon on the main screen is now red with a line through it and the light pipe will glow red. That's how you know privacy mode is activated.
