What kind of heating and cooling system do I need?
You need to have a standard forced air (central) system. Ecovent will not work with radiant heat, ductless systems, high velocity systems or window units.
How does Ecovent work with Wi-Fi thermostats?
We use your thermostat to get hot or cool air into the ducts. Once it’s in the ducts, our vents will open or close to get the air where you want it.
What Wi-Fi thermostats does Ecovent work with?
Ecovent works best with Sensi™ Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat. Ecovent can work with most smart thermostats and we expect to be integrated with all in the near future. Therefore, if Ecovent is unable to connect with your current thermostat, let us know and we will include one with your purchase to assure optimal performance. If you have more specific questions or want to let us know about a thermostat you’d like to see us work with, you can contact our Customer Experience team.
Does the Ecovent system include a thermostat?
Ecovent or your professional installer can replace your existing thermostat with a Sensi Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat or our latest integration Zen, for Zigbee radio communications and WiFi independence.
Can I control the system from my smartphone, tablet or computer?
Ecovent is controlled from your smartphone or tablet. We currently have iOS and Android apps. The mobile app allows you to control the temperature in every room, turn your thermostat on and off, and see the status of every room in your home - whether you’re on the couch or away from the house.
I have multiple zones in my home. Can Ecovent still help?
Even if you have a multi-zone home, Ecovent can still help. Chances are, you have rooms that are hotter or colder than you’d like them to be. Our system enables you to break your pre-existing zones down further, and set your temperature preferences on a room-by-room basis.
Will Ecovent integrate with HomeKit, Wink, SmartThings and other platforms?
This is underway and we expect integration with many of these platforms in the near future! If you’re interested in specific integrations, please let us know what you would like to see.
Do you have an API?
We are working on this, but currently, we don’t have an open API. Coming very soon…
