With My Ecobee device and the ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule smartapp (included in My Ecobee bundle), you can use any ST connected temp/motion sensors and choose which ones will participate in the setpoints adjustment using the concepts of rooms/zones/schedules. The schedules in the smartapp can be associated to your ST location mode (Away, Home, Night) and associated to the right ecobee climate settings.
You can even choose which calculation method (average, median, min, max, heat-min/cool-max) for the setpoints adjustment based on your remote sensors…
Also, you can create virtual zone devices to do targeted heating/cooling in your home:
It’s similar to the ecobee’s follow me and smart away features, but the smartapp can be much more reactive with other ST motion sensors as the ecobee’s proprietary remote sensors are a bit slow to react to motion.
See the following ecobee API limitations for details:

There are many use cases supported by my zoning smartapp:
P.S. No other ecobee implementation can do this…
