Released a new update of the Zigbee Temp Sensor with Thermostat Mc driver, which will be updated automatically
Fixed custom presentations of temperature ranges in Cooling and Heating set points to show the correct range (-50 to 250) in automations/actions
Changed the presentations to show in the multiple mosaic the active Thermostat Mode. Now that smartthings have fixed capability stock presentation.
Depending on the capabilities of the sensor used to control the thermostat, one or the other capability will be displayed in multi-tile. (I have tested with these 3 of the 5 types of devices included in the driver).
When the thermostat is in Off mode the temperature information will be updated with increments of 0.5ºc (0.27ºF)

Well, since it’s very hot, I stayed home and modified the driver.
I added the subdrivers and profiles to keep all the functionality of the multiple sensor, contact, acceleration, 3 axis and garage door.
I have always thought that doors and windows are not a good place to control the temperature, but each one has its needs for use!
I have already tested it with the Samjin model, you will also try it with the samrtthings and if it works well I will merge it with the published one
Hello, I have a Zigbee Temp & Humidity Sensor that looks to be compatible with your Edge Driver (TS0201) but the Device Manufacturer is not listed yet (_TZ3000_yd2e749y). What additional information do you need to have this added to the list of compatible devices? Right now it is found as a Zigbee Thing and when I try to manually change the driver I get a weird message to make sure my phone is on the Network (it is fine, just seems to be a standard response to just this device).It won’t let me change it in IDE as it already is defaulted a Zigbee Thing Edge driver. Thanks.

I apologize if an answer to this question has already been provided. I did scan the thread and did not see an answer. I am also unable to tinker as my drivers have not yet been migrated to edge.
I am looking for methods to account for the ecobee helper apps in Ecobee Suite Manager now that the end of Groovy has been made official.
I use it for two methods, one to turn off the hvac system when windows are opened and secondly to also disable the fan completely. If I am understanding the documentation correctly turning off the thermostat is no issue but I am not seeing anything about disabling the fan.
When the windows are open I want the fan disabled through my ecobee thermostat. Secondly, I want a virtual switch to disable the fan so the “off” state can be triggered manually.
Is this something that is possible or is it something that can be added?
Yes, it is possible.
This how i do that. I have one virtual contact sensor that changes to Open, when any window or patio door is open, and changes to Closed when All windows and patio door are closed. 10 minutes delay give me time to get in and out without turning off A/C every time someone goes through the door, or opens window for less than 10 minutes. If anything is open 10 minutes or longer it puts A/C Off.
You can always turn off A/C manually, and it will stay that way until someone closes all windows and doors. If you manually turn A/C On, when something is open, it will last only for 10 minutes (if someone wants to circulate fresh air).
I do have additional virtual switch (HVAC Mode) that is used to store A/C state Heating or Cooling, that I use when I turn A/C back on to previous Cooling or Heating
When you turn thermostat off, fan is off too, it might take some time to run after, but that is settings in ecobee app.
Hopefully this helps
Thank you. It is far from the simplicity of the helper apps with some reduced functionality but at the least the core aspects are there. Good to know the fan turns off with the “off” using this driver. I will miss the fan being separate since I would disable that alone and have it activate when the cooling triggered again. Maybe in time someone will figure out how to recreate a helper app in Edge.
I have added these new functions for temperature, humidity and illuminance, according to the profile of the device used. I will only count the temperature one, the Humidity an Illuminance work the same.
I have added capabilities to introduce the comparison value to be used in the driver and automations:
For temperature, enter the value in ºC or ºF, depending on your location and you have to choose the ºC and ºF units in preferences since the driver does not have access to know which units the app is using.
The driver compares the current temperature with the entered reference value and emits an event with the result of the comparison “Equal or Up” or “Down” to a capability, which is only seen and used in automations/conditions to trigger the routine. (I don’t know how to compare =, >=, or <=, since they overlap and would give wrong results.)
