Toronto — Green tech company, ecobee, has released a free Android app that lets customers remotely control the company’s Wi-Fi-enabled Smart Thermostats from their Android devices.

The ecobee Android app looks and operates just like the ecobee Smart Thermostat and works on any Android device with OS 2.0 and up. Users can remotely adjust the thermostat’s temperature, schedule or update a vacation event, change the system and fan operating settings, and receive important alerts.

“Our customers expect to be able to access their ecobee Smart Thermostats from anywhere across a wide variety of mobile platforms,” said ecobee founder and CEO Stuart Lombard. “In response to the rapid adoption of Android devices and the many requests from our loyal customers, we have launched our free Android app to make it even easier for our customers to save energy without sacrificing their comfort.”

Ecobee also offers a free iPhone app which has seen tens of thousands of downloads to date, the company says.
