I’m a noobie, just set up my first simple SmartThings network: hub, CT100, and one GE link bulb. Next step, obviously, automating the whole thing. Long story short, the light works great when I leave and approach the house. Thermostat, on the other hand, is proving to be stubborn.
I’m trying to use “Keep Me Cozy” smart app to change the settings after I am no longer in the house and then change them again when I’m back. The goal is to have “set it and forget it” system. So, when I leave the house, I set the AC settings to 85 and Heat settings to 65, and upon return AC is lowered to 77 and Heat is raised to 72. The whole system is on “AUTO” (including fan). My thinking is that during the winter it would automatically use the heat settings to approach a target temp, and during the summer it would use the AC. What I discovered is that upon leaving & return the heat settings has changed as predicted, but AC never did. Did anyone experience it on their system? Am I asking too much of this system? Any ideas how to accomplish it? Thanks for your help!
