Fill out this survey to apply for the opportunity to beta test an upcoming ecobee light switch device.

Appears that it will work with alexa and will ask for an optional alexa account in the application.

Have a picture of your existing wiring ready before applying. It looks like the key requirement is that you show an existing neutral/white wire in the electrical box where your test switch would be installed.

I infer that they use this picture to filter applicants who are willing to get their hands dirty.

Had the same thought. I love the "when are you home and away" type questions. There is a sign-up page on the Ecobee site. I think I'll go that route vs. an unsolicited SurveyMonkey link. https://www.ecobee.com/ecobeeswitch/sign-up/
Thanks for the head-up though OP

This is legit. I got the same invite last week. I haven't heard anything or received anything, but it came from Ecobee.

Also the picture is to prove you have a neutral wire. They don't want to send the product to someone that doesn't have the proper setup to install them.

I did the survey from an email they sent over a month ago. They said the week of December 5th that notices would be sent for those that were selected. I've heard nothing, meh.

Update, I guess I should've looked at email.

Thanks for your submission

Better luck next time. We have a full round of ecobee Switch+ Pilots, but don't fret. Recruitment for round two may be closer than you think!
