How to Install an Ecobee Door Sensor?

  • After pairing the door sensor with the mobile app, you will have to continue through the directions for placement.
  • Before mounting the sensor, you must clean the area when you want it installed.
  • The smart sensor has a magnet that works with the base for detecting entry and can go on either side. Make sure that the bottom of the base needs to be in line with the bottom of the magnet.
  • The circular lens of the base detects motion so they need to be in a vertical position with the word "ecobee" in the upright position.
  • While installing, you will check that the base and magnet should be as close together as possible. For the first 15 minutes in the setup mode, the green LED will glow when the base & magnet are close enough for detecting a closed state. After that, that green LED will just blink when your door or windows open or close.
  • Next, move the sensor's base and magnet around to fit at your needed door.
