Hi all, I’ve just started using ST and while I understand some of the basics, I am absolutely lost when it comes to making it really work for me.
Right now we have an ecobee3 with 2 sensors and 2 Cree connected bulbs.
I have them all connected and can control them via ST but I’m also having some difficulty getting the routines to work properly.
1st. In my ecobee programming I have 3 comfort modes set. The 3 automatic that ecobee starts with and I made another comfort setting for an evening drop in Temp. It drops the temp, AC, down a few degrees at 6:30pm. The first issue I’m having with the ecobee and ST is; ST doesn’t show the 4 modes I have set when I try to set an evening routine. It only shows “away” “home” and “night” but not the “evening” setting I added.
2nd. I only have a few things and a few routines set up and most work perfectly but a couple I’m having issues with. For instance I have “wake up” routine that brings the temp up a few degrees from “sleep” mode, it’s set to trigger at 8:30am. The “wake up” routine works good.
I have an “away” routine set to bring them Temp up a few degrees when “everyone leaves” and it works good.
Where I’m having issues is; I have a routine set for evening Temp that drops the temp a few degrees from the home setting and it’s set to trigger at 6:30pm and the temp setting is set by putting in a specific temp, because ST doesn’t show my “evening” mode on my ecobee. The “evening” routine also turns on our 2 Cree bulbs.
I have one set for home that sets the ecobee to “home” setting when someone arrives.
And I have a “bed time” routine that’s set to turn off the lights, and drop the temp to “night” mode on my ecobee, it’s set to trigger at 10:30 pm.
This is the routine I think I’m having an issue with.
The evening routine fires perfectly however, at 10:30p, when the lights are schedule off and, the temp is supposed to go to night mode, here I am at 1am and the ecobee is still showing “holding at 71” (which is what it’s supposed to be) and the lights are still on when they should’ve turned off already.
I can trigger “bed time” manually by pushing the button BUT, it’s not triggering the lights A
We did run out for dinner, and the “away” mode must’ve triggered however, it seems like the “away” mode is still active and running.
Any ideas as to what’s keeping my “bed time” routine from happening?
