Our story starts with a man who wondered about a better way. In 2007, Stuart Lombard made a personal goal to reduce his environmental footprint. After discovering that heating and cooling make up 40% to 60% of home energy use, he attempted to program his own thermostat to conserve energy while away on vacation. When he and his family returned home to Toronto to a shockingly cold house, he began to envision a better efficiency solution that could conserve energy without compromising comfort.
Assembling a small team of likeminded experts, the new Canadian company of ecobee was formed. Together, the ecobee team was able to launch the first ever smart thermostat. Since then, ecobee customers across North America have saved more than 10.4 TWh of energy, which is the annual equivalent of saving enough energy to take all the homes in Las Vegas off the grid for a year. And that impact continues to grow every day. SmartBuildings is designed for buildings and business of all types. A customizable portal and award-winning smart devices keep your customers comfortable, and your maintenance routine easy.

Buildings aren’t occupied 24/7. There’s a time for comfort, and a time for savings. To help make the most out of a tight budget, SmartBuildings lets you adjust temperatures by date and time ahead of events and holidays. So you can dedicate less to energy costs, and more for initiatives that matter. Retail
Shoppers need to be comfortable—but with inventory and staff to manage, it’s not always easy to keep top-of-mind. SmartBuildings allows you to manage thermostats in all locations in one place, for one less thing to worry about. For even more control, use passcodes to limit how much thermostats can be adjusted.
A good host's top priority is their guests' comfort, not back-of-house operations. Receive alerts when temperatures get too high or low for both your customers and specific equipment like freezers. For multi-location needs, SmartBuildings provides the tools to update and maintain schedules remotely.
