Hi, I was wondering if someone can help me.
I have a simple setup. Currently I have my Ecobee “Hold Action” preference set to, “Until I change it”. This allows SmartThings to have a continuous hold on the Ecobee’s temperature and essentially disables the Ecobee’s activity scheduling. I use SmartThings routines to change my Ecobee temperature to my liking. It’s been working really well.
Now I see a lot of posts recommending and promoting code, such as Yves Racine’s MyEcobee device and smartapps. Can someone explain to me what I’m missing out on by keeping my setup as it is and not installing any custom code? Am I putting myself at a disadvantage by not by not using the Ecobee’s scheduled activity settings?
