What does “And Holding” mean on my ecobee4?

Whenever you manually adjust your ecobee4 to a different temperature that’s not the scheduled set point, your ecobee4 will go into a “hold." This means your thermostat will hold at this newly selected temperature set point until you cancel it.

 

You can also adjust and change the settings of the Hold action so it automatically returns to the scheduled set point after 2 hours, 4 hours, and so on. To do this, just tap Main Menu > Settings > Preferences > Hold Action and make the changes you like.
