I am using two ecobee SmartSI thermostats and they showed up in my presence sensor. I am using @yvesracine decvice type. Any ideas why?
I also wondered this and concluded it’s using the motion detection of the unit for presence as it does if you use the native feature.
I have the SI version not the Ecobee 3 (with sensors).
The device type you are using has capability “Presence Sensor” defined. Not sure why, but this is why it’s showing up there.
Just like the nest device type both of these device have home/away functionality and the developers choose to implement this as a “Presence Sensor” This allows a smartapp to set your thermostat away/home by simply changing its presence.
Ok, That makes sense! Thanks!
