Energy geeks rejoice! Ecobee to offer thermostat control via iPhone app

Michael Giberson

Have you ever hopped into your car heading out of town, and thirty minutes down the road you wonder, “Did I remember to adjust the thermostat?”

There will soon be an app for that, at least if you have Ecobee‘s thermostat and an iPhone.

Tyler Hamilton reports:

Toronto-based Ecobee Inc., which has developed a cool-looking smart thermostat that connects to your home Wi-Fi network, will soon be launching a new application that lets a person control the thermostat from their iPhone wherever they happen to be. “Basically we have created an iPhone application that turns the iPhone into a thermostat replica,” a spokesperson told me.

Or also, if you happen to be sitting on the couch watching football and decide the house is a little warm, you can adjust the thermostat without having to get up.
