Ecobee Remote Sensors Can Now Be Used as HomeKit Temperature and Occupancy Sensors

Posted by · 10025 views · Translate
Ecobee has released a firmware update for its smart thermostat that lets you use its remote sensors as temperature and occupancy sensors in the Home app. This means that users can now create automations based on motion or temperature detected by these sensors.

Here's the full changelog for the new firmware:

Firmware Version 3.7.0.969
• Automatically Restore HomeKit Connection. Occasionally some ecobees could lose its connection to Homekit and have to be rebooted in order to re-establish the connection. This firmware update enables the ecobee to automatically reconnect without any user action.
• Wireless sensors with homekit enhancement. The wireless sensors now show up as accessories in the iOS Home app. Because of the dual functionality (occupancy detection and temperature sensing) of the sensors, each sensor will show up as two accessories.
• The usual background cleanup and stability. As always, to smooth things out for a better experience.

You can purchase the Ecobee3 Smart Thermostat from Amazon for $247.90. You can get an additional 2 pack of sensors for $58.61.

Do I have to have the thermostat or can I just buy the sensors? Do they use the thermostat to connect to the home kit app? They are cheaper than other temperature sensors, so was thinking of using them as a work around.
