Understanding Alerts

From time to time your ecobee system will display an alert — a reminder to change the furnace filter, or perform regular maintenance, for example. If you have connected your Smart Si thermostat to the Internet, these alerts can also be sent to you via email.

When an alert displays, you can dismiss it or ask to be reminded later. For example, if you receive a furnace filter alert and choose Remind me later, the alert will clear and display again 24 hours later. If you choose OK when the alert displays, it will reset the reminder.
