Ecobee Smart Thermostat

Your ecobee Smart Thermostat can be set to only allow specific heating and cooling temperature ranges. This prevents someone from accidentally selecting an absurdly high or low temperature value when manually adjusting the thermostat.

Limiting heating and cooling temperature ranges on your ecobee Smart Thermostat can be done from the device itself, or via the ecobee web portal:

From the Thermostat

  1. Select the Main Menu.
    Menu
  2. Select Settings.

  4. Select Heating Range or Cooling Range.
    Heating and Cooling ranges
  5. Select the desired Heating range and Cooling range, then tap Save.

    The range settings for heating and cooling are separate and should be set independently.
