How do I add a second user to ecobee?

Answered by John Hunt

Adding a second user to your Ecobee smart thermostat is a simple process that can be done through the Ecobee app. Here are the steps to follow:

1. Open the Ecobee app on your smartphone or tablet and sign in to your account.

2. Once you’re signed in, tap on the “Account” tab at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to your account settings.

3. In the account settings, look for the option that says “Manage Homes” and tap on it. This will show you a list of the homes you have set up with your Ecobee thermostat.

4. Select the home that you want to add a second user to. If you have multiple homes, make sure you choose the correct one.

5. Within the home settings, you should see an option called “Home Members.” Tap on this option to manage the members of your home.

6. In the Home Members section, you will see a list of the current members of your home. To add a new member, tap on the “Invite New Member” button.

7. A pop-up window will appear asking for the email address of the person you want to invite. Enter the email address of the second user and tap on the “Send Invite” button.

8. The second user will receive an email invitation to join your Ecobee home. They will need to follow the instructions in the email to set up their own Ecobee account and accept the invitation.

9. Once the second user has accepted the invitation and set up their account, they will be able to access and control the Ecobee thermostat in your home using their own Ecobee app.

By adding a second user to your Ecobee, you can easily share control of your smart thermostat with other members of your household. This is especially useful if you have multiple people who want to have the ability to adjust the thermostat settings or monitor energy usage.

Adding a second user can also be helpful if you have a vacation home or rental property, as you can grant access to the thermostat to guests or tenants without giving them full control over your Ecobee account.

The process of adding a second user to your Ecobee is straightforward and can be done in just a few minutes through the Ecobee app.
