My zoned heating/cooling smartapps allow to use any ST connected sensors (motion, temp, presence and even contact sensors) to control the vents (not only the limited ecobee’s remote sensors).
I’m in contact with Keen Home, and they won’t allow this kind of control.
BTW, the ecobee3’s remote motion capability is not meant to be used for real-time HA scenarios, so if you’re planning to use them for controlling the vents, it won’t work well. It’s an Ecobee API limitations, see
On top of it, my zoned heating/cooling solutions have a lot of features that no other smartapps can do:
- Set your thermostat to Away or Present based on any ST connected sensors
- Control your fan based on indoor sensors (temp differential between sensors)
- Avg calculations based on any ST connected temp sensors to adjust the setpoints (like the follow me features of the ecobee3, but with the added concept of zones)
- Alternative cooling
- And much more…
So, I guess my smartapps are there to stay for a lot of ecobee (and Nest) users out there…
