Q: We have a customer with multiple group homes. They would like a simple easy to remotely control thermostat that would not allow access by employees in the home. Can the screen controls be locked out by password on this unit? It appears to do the remote work they are looking for.
A: The ecobee thermostat has an Access Control feature. To enable the lock out feature, you will create a 4 digit PIN number. You can restrict All Access, Details Access, Program Access, Vacation Access, and Quick Save Access.
