Connecting your ecobee thermostat to WiFi and configuring WiFi settings

 

The Wi-Fi connection process is normally completed during initial installation by following the on-screen prompts.

If you skipped this step, or if your home network settings have changed, you can adjust your network settings by going to MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > WI-FI > NETWORK on your ecobee thermostat’s screen. This menu is only accessible on the ecobee thermostat itself, not the mobile app or Web Portal.

Connecting to Wi-Fi:

On the thermostat:

Go to MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > WI-FI > NETWORK. If the “Wi-Fi Radio” option says “Disabled,” tap it and change it to “Enabled”

1) Tap “Select Wi-Fi Network” and then tap “Next” in the bottom right

2) Select your wireless network name (SSID) from the list and then tap “Next”

3) Enter your wireless network password and then tap “Connect”

The ecobee thermostat will now connect to your Wi-Fi network and will display a “Successfully connected to ecobee.com” message upon completion. Tap “OK” in the bottom right corner.

 

Connecting to Wi-Fi using an iOS device:

Before you begin, ensure your iOS device is connected to the same 2.4GHz network you wish to connect your ecobee thermostat to.

 

On the thermostat’s screen:

1) Go to MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > WI-FI > NETWORK. If the “Wi-Fi Radio” option says “Disabled”, tap it and change it to “Enabled”

2) Tap “Use iPhone, iPad, or iPod” and then tap “Next” in the bottom right

Next, on your iOS device:

1) Select “Settings” and then “Wi-Fi”

2) Ensure your iOS device is connected to Wi-Fi by looking for a checkmark next to your network name under the “Wi-Fi” section of the screen. If it is not, tap the name of your network under the “Choose a Network” section to connect your iOS device to that network

3) On the bottom of the Wi-Fi screen, under “Set Up New Device”, look for the serial number and model of your thermostat and tap it

4) Tap “Next” in the top right corner
