ecobee

What Siri voice commands can I use to control my ecobee?

You’ll find a comprehensive list of commands below.

If you’re just starting out, here are a few to start with. Just Activate Siri by holding your iPhone home button for 3 seconds, and try one of the following:

  • “What is my thermostat temperature” – To get the temperature of your thermostat.

 

  • “Set my thermostat to 20 degrees” – to set your thermostat to 20 degrees.  The ecobee thermostat is smart enough to know whether you have Celsius or Fahrenheit as your preferred temperature unit of measurement.

 

  • “What is the temperature in <sensor name>” – to get the temperature of one of your sensors.

 

  • “Set my thermostat to Heat/Cool/Auto/Off” – to set your thermostat to a system mode.

 

  • “I’m leaving” – to set your thermostat to Away comfort settings.

 

  • “Turn on <switch name>” – to have your Switch+ turn on the lights.

 

  • “Turn off <switch name>” – to have your Switch+ turn off the lights.

 

  • “Is <switch name> on/off?” – to find out if your lights are on or off.
