Is there a way to make an Ecobee communicate a temperature change to a ST hub faster, or when the change on the Ecobee happens?
By way of example, the temperature changes from 73 to 74 on the Ecobee device. It will stay on 73 in ST for as long as 8 minutes, (sometimes shorter). I would like the change in ST to be the same time (or as close as possible) as the change on the Ecobee.
I’m not sure how they communicate. Does ST poll Ecobee or does Ecobee send the thermostat data to ST on their schedule? I’ve not found a way to change anything like this in the Ecobee dashboard…
Looks like 5 to 10 minutes is the best they can do.
I’m waiting for a temp. change to try.
@Paul_OliverEDIT: Pulling down on the Ecobee tile in the mobile SmartThings app gives a small spinning dot and does seem to refresh the temp reading in SmartThings and thus in SharpTools. Now how to make it do that by itself!!!
EDIT: Scratch that… looking at the history of that device, I do not believe that the pulling down caused a refresh of the Ecobee temperature.
