I would like to understand how the current CT100 thermostat users are using the device with SmartThings especially with the issues I have been noticing. Idea is to understand if its an issue seen by everyone or just user specific.
Please let me know how you circumvent the issue which could be beneficial for other users as well.
Up/Down button for temperature control - This could easily be the top requested feature ever since I owned this device. I was able to add my own up/down buttons by creating a custom device handler. Its sad that SmartThings cannot add this functionality to its default device handler
Temperature update on the app - For some reason the temperature sensor readings taking a while to get it updated to the cloud. Is this a polling issue? Any steps to fix? Can we use CoRE to do a refresh to get an updated settings? I did try this approach but does not seem to fix the issue
State changes - Could be related to the above issue but the mode changes(heat/idle/cool) does not get updated on the app. This is very annoying!
Heat/Cool/Idle Option - The UI is pathetic for this device handler. For me to switch to cool mode, it has to cycle thru heat mode… this starts the furnace(duh!!) while I try to get to start cooling the house.
Others, please chime and let me know if you were able to address any of the above issues.
