I am very new to this … I have an ecobee 3 and it connected pretty easily last night to my new ST hub. I easily setup a test where if one of my senors was too warm during a time period then set a temp a couple degrees lower and it worked. So then I set another rule to where if the senor’s temp was just right then set the thermostat to resume… but that did not work. I know the event fired as I added a notification. Also the the next scheduled event did not resume, nor did forcing a two hour limit on the hold action; it is as if the ST hijacked my thermostat.
So today I signed up here on the community and then i searched and found that this seems to be a known issue since 2016 and when I went to test something else I see that the thermostat is listed as disconnected, but not my 3 remote sensors. What? How? Yet I can change the temp in ST and it shows up quickly on my Ecobee and if I change it on the Ecobee, phone or web, it shows up in ST so how is it disconnected??
I really want this to work (I am a geek), I want to add a ceiling fan switch and maybe a few more items but this simple resume test and the disconnection issue makes me want to box it up and return it. Please, someone tell me what I did wrong and/or how to fix it. I do not think that what I want to do is that hard. I also do not want to add other apps and helper apps to stitch this all together like Frankenstein’s monster.
Thanks in advance for all your wisdom that you can pass my way.
