What Siri voice commands can I use to control my HomeKit-enabled ecobee3?

What Siri voice commands can I use to control my HomeKit-enabled ecobee3?

You’ll find a comprehensive list of commands below.

If you’re just starting out, here are a few to start with. Just Activate Siri by holding your iPhone home button for 3 seconds, and try one of the following:

  1.  “What is my thermostat temperature” – To get the temperature of your thermostat
  2. “Set my thermostat to 20 degrees” – to set your thermostat to 20 degrees.  The ecobee thermostat is smart enough to know whether you have Celsius or Fahrenheit as your preferred temperature unit of measurement.
  3. “What is the temperature in <sensor name>” – to get the temperature of one of your sensor.
  4. “Set my thermostat to Heat/Cool/Auto/Off” – to set your thermostat to a system mode
  5. “I’m leaving” – to set your thermostat to Away comfort settings
