Please see the latest release below:
I am pleased to announce a major update to my Open Source enhancements to the Freeware Ecobee DTH and suite of supporting SmartApps. This is an extension of the fantastic work done originally by Sean Stryker @StrykerSKS
Now with Ask Alexa Message Queue Integration!!! For users of Michael Struck’s most awesome Ask Alexa, you can now have your Ecobee Alerts and Reminders sent to Ask Alexa Message Queues, where they can be “read” to you by Alexa!
Enhanced User Experience Buttons, Icons and Status displays now update in near-real time, and buttons that are unavailable in the current Mode/Program/State are dynamically greyed out. The Routines/Modes/Programs Helper SmartApp now allows you to specify minimum fan on time per Program, and also to cancel a Vacation hold based on SmartThings Routines or Modes.
If you would like to try out the Device Types and SmartApp, you can follow the instructions on my GitHub SmartThings repository:
For those familiar with using SmartThings/GitHub integration, the particulars you need are:
You will need to get ALL the
.groovy SmartApps under the SmartThings directory whose names start with
ecobee, as well as the two DTHs in deviceTypes under the SmartThings directory. More information is in the Readme file linked in the GitHUB directory linked above.
As noted, this work is fully Open Source, and available for use at no charge. However, if you would like to make a donation, you can send it to me at https://paypal.me/BarryABurke
