I believe their camera can work as a siren not sure if the thermostat with Alexa built in can do the same. You can see the sensor status without Haven but can't really do much with them if you don't have the service. Home Assistant doesn't see them but I believe someone has already made the feature request.

The Haven system will arm the system when all with the Ecobee app left the house.
But there may be someone in the household using a flip phone or do not have a mobile phone. I don't want Haven system to arm my system when the people with the Ecobee app left the house.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

I called Ecobee. Answer is they are pretty useless without a subscription. With an active subscription, you will get immediate notifications for movement. Without a subscription, there’s no notifications. But the rep said if you open the app, it will list the results.

That is optional.

Their smart switches act as alarms now too. A loud siren! Pretty cool.

I got the Ecobee 3 Lite - no offer.





I have the Ecobee 3 Lite and received the offer and am waiting for it to ship now

Make sure your thermostat is connected to the internet. You will not get the offer code automatically if you're not connected. Contact customer support for assistance and they'll email you a code afterwards if your account is eligible.

Fyi customer service did check phone model and app version then had to check with team before emailing the code a couple of hours later because my thermostat was offline when I submitted for the offer.

Thanks OP!!

Is the siren coming door/windows switch?
Do you have a siren installed at your house?

I heard the 1 beep on my phone app when the room sensors and/or door sensor detected motion and a notification on my phone notification bar.

If your thermostat has a speaker it will have a siren option with Haven. My smart switches emit a siren now if I tell it to.

The siren comes from my ecobee smart switches. I assume if you have an ecobee thermostat with Alexa it will act like a siren as well. Ecobee smart switches are light switches.

I don't have the smart light switch.
My system consists of Ecobee 3 Lite + 2 room sensors + 2 door/windows sensors.

The following Ecobee items has the Alexa built-in and act as siren:
1. The new Ecobee security camera can be used as Alexa voice and siren.
2. Ecobee 4 with Alexa
3. Ecobee light switch with Alexa
