I have two ecobee thermostats in my home (two AC units, upstairs/downstairs) with a total of 3 remote sensors. The system works great. I also have the ecobee integration with smartthings (Ecobee connect).
Last night, my AC kicked in around 10, 11pm, 12am and 1am. But looking at info in SmartThings (I’m using logging, but same data is visible in the ‘recently’ tab of the thermostat, and in the ‘events’ list in the API), it only has the 10pm and 1am run; it completely missed the 11pm and 12 am runs.
The ecobee web app will present detailed charts of events, and also, you can download the data into a CSV file. I just downloaded the last month of data, and I can clearly see run-events at the 11 and 12 times, and also, temperature readings that occur every 5 minutes exactly. But in ST, not only does it not have the two major on/off events, it only has sparse temp readings (in the ‘recently’ view, and/or in the API view of events) - a reading at 10:42pm, and another at 12:17am.
It almost looks like the ST app is ignoring readings that aren’t whole digits different; that is - it’s recording a temp of 79, 80, and 81 … while ecobee is showing 79.1, 79.2, 79.3, … etc.
So question 1 might be - is there a way to tell ST to capture more data from ecobee?
question 2 - I can live with ST missing the ‘fine details’ reading, but I can’t live with it not capturing the ‘on/off’ events for the AC. Is there any way to address that?
Edit To Add: I just took another look at the data. While the ‘recently’ tab in the ‘Things’ view shows very sparse readings (one at 10:37, one at 10:42, then nothing until after 12 midnight), the ‘Event List’ in the API shows an event every 5 minutes; in fact, two events. “APP_COMMAND, Ecobee (Connect) sent generateEvent command to (my thermostat)”, and “COMMAND, generateEvent Command was sent to (my thermostat)”.
So there IS communication going on between ST and Ecobee, every 5 minutes, but only very occasionally do I see data coming back

Who wrote / who is responsible for the ecobee integration with ST? How would I know if there was a new version?
I just looked and I don’t even see a SmartApp for the Ecobee integration, nor a custom device handler. It’s been so long since I set up Ecobee integration, I don’t even remember how I did it!
