What Are Comfort Settings?

Comfort Settings make sure your home is the right temperature during specific activities in your schedule.

A predefined heat/cool setting that can be applied to a specific period of a day, you can define comfort settings to represent activities (such as Sleep, Home, Away, Gym) or events (such as Party or Play Date).

For example, when you’re home, your ecobee thermostat can turn the heating on if the temperature falls below 70F and turn the cooling on if the temperature rises above 78F. Or when you’re away, only turn heating on if the temperature falls below 62F and turn cooling on if the temperature rises above 85F.
