In our latest video segment we are tackling installing the all newEcobee Switch+. During the installation it is recomeneded that you have to following tools available:

If you are not comfortable working with electrical wiring then you should not attempt to install the Ecobee Switch+ on your own and should hire a professional to do it for you.

The Installation process is pretty straight forward as far as connected switches go and looks something like this:

  1. Remove the Existing Switch from the wall
  2. Identify the wires connected to the switch
  3. Turn power off to the circuit
  4. Disconnect the wires from the existing switch (Line, Load and Ground)
  5. Connect the wires to the (Line, Load, Groud and Neutral)
  6. Ensure your connections are good and tight
  7. Carefully fold excess wire into the back of the wall box
  8. Mount the Ecobee Switch+
  9. Install the Wall Plate
  10. Turn power back on
  11. Test your installation

Installation of the Ecobee Switch+ is much like the installation of any connected switch which requires a Neutral Connection. Remember a Neutral connection is not required for a dumb switch and not all switch locations will have a Neutral Wire and if you have any questions you should consult a professional.

Anyone else have the Ecobee Switch+ installed? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
