How to Set up and Use Your Ecobee SmartThermostat

Watch this step-by-step video to learn how to set up and use your new ecobee SmartThermostat.


Congratulations on getting a new ecobee SmartThermostat! While many customers typically book in-home installation and setup with an expert Reliance™ technician, we realize that is not always possible. This video will take you through the setup and operation of your new ecobee SmartThermostat step-by-step.

This video will help you program and use your new thermostat. You will find some handy timestamps along the timeline of the video to help you skip ahead to the instructions you need. If by the end of this video you still have questions, or wish to set up an in-home consultation with one of our Home Comfort Advisors, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you book an appointment.
