How do I reset my Ecobee light switch?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

To reset your Ecobee light switch, follow these steps:

1. Press and hold the main button on the switch for about 5 seconds. You will hear a voice prompt saying “Reset to factory settings.”

2. Once you hear the prompt, release the main button.

3. Press the main button again to confirm the reset.

4. Wait for the amber light on the switch to illuminate. This may take around 30 seconds.

Now that you have reset your Ecobee light switch to its factory settings, you can proceed with the setup process using the Ecobee app. Here’s what you need to do:

1. Download and install the Ecobee app on your smartphone or tablet.

2. Open the app and sign in to your Ecobee account. If you don’t have an account, you can create one during the setup process.

3. Follow the on-screen instructions to add a new device. Make sure to select the option for adding a light switch.

4. The app will guide you through the registration process, which may involve connecting to your home Wi-Fi network and configuring the settings for your light switch.

5. Once the setup is complete, you should be able to control your Ecobee light switch using the app or through voice commands if you have it integrated with a smart assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

If you encounter any issues during the setup or have trouble connecting your Ecobee light switch, you can refer to the Ecobee support website or reach out to their customer support for further assistance. They have a helpful team that can guide you through any troubleshooting steps if needed.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you reset your Ecobee light switch and get it up and running smoothly again. If you have any further questions or need more assistance, feel free to ask!
