ecobee Releases Android App for Internet-Enabled Smart Thermostat
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, – February 17, 2011 – ecobee, the award-winning green technology company, today expanded its mobile offerings with the release of a free Android app for the ecobee Smart Thermostat. Downloadable from the Android Market, the ecobee Android app will allow customers to control their ecobee Smart Thermostats anytime, anywhere from the convenience of their Android devices.
The ecobee Android app looks and operates just like the ecobee Smart Thermostat and works on any Android device with OS 2.0 and up. Users can remotely adjust the thermostat’s temperature, schedule or update a vacation event, change the system and fan operating settings, and receive important alerts.
“Our customers expect to be able to access their ecobee Smart Thermostats from anywhere across a wide variety of mobile platforms,” said ecobee founder and CEO Stuart Lombard. “In response to the rapid adoption of Android devices and the many requests from our loyal customers, we have launched our free Android app to make it even easier for our customers to save energy without sacrificing their comfort.”
As one ecobee user stated, “I just installed your WiFi Smart Thermostat in our ‘new’ (built in 1901) house and couldn’t be more pleased. We’re driving back and forth from our old to our new house every few days, and the next time we drive back, I’ll be able to cancel vacation mode from the car using your Android app a half hour from our destination.”
ecobee also offers a free iPhone app which has proven immensely popular with tens of thousands of downloads to date.
The Android app is available for download at the Android Market:
