A new way to share Mysa!
Shared Access is an update to the Mysa Mobile App that gives you the power to share access to all your Mysa thermostats to family, friends, or anyone you wish!
Maybe you want to give your children the ability to change their room temperature? Or perhaps have a basement apartment? With Shared Access you can grant them access to select Mysa's!
To give someone shared access simply follow the steps below:
What settings can shared users change?
Users that you choose to share access with have the ability to adjust the following settings for the devices shared with them:
- Max/Min Temp
- Device Brightness
- Navigate to Shared Users
- Who is Currently a Shared User?
- Update Shared User Access
- Add a new Shared User
- Remove a Shared User
Navigate to Shared Users (Access)

After selecting Shared Access you will arrive at the Shared Access page.
From here you can see all current individuals that you are sharing your Mysa thermostats with.
Update Shared User Access
Added new thermostats after already sharing access? Maybe giving your children access wasn't the best idea? No worries! you can change a users access anytime.
To do this simply start by selecting the user you wish to adjust the sharing for.
You will then see a list of all the thermostats they currently have access to, filled in Purple.
From here you can either tap to grant them access to new thermostats or remove them. Units with access will be filled purple and units without access will be left white. (As seen in example below)
