  7. Enable or Disable the Smart Home/Away function by tapping the desired setting.

    The Smart Home/Away function uses all the sensors connected to your thermostat to detect if anyone is currently home. If, according to your normal schedule, your thermostat believes you should be “home,” but your sensors detect that your home is actually unoccupied, your ecobee thermostat will make adjustments so you aren't unnecessarily heating or cooling an empty home.

  8. Enable or Disable the Follow Me function by tapping the desired setting.

    The Follow Me function uses all the sensors connected to your thermostat to intelligently make heating and cooling decisions for the rooms of your home that your sensors detect activity in. If the Follow Me function is disabled, your ecobee thermostat will make heating and cooling decisions based on the average temperatures measured between the sensors in your home.
