Just to let my contributors know and all ST users who would like to do targeted heating/cooling in their home that I have new versions of my zoned Heating/Cooling smartapps available at my store :
I made further enhancements to ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (v8.4.5) and ScheduleTstatZones (v8.4.5) for better synchronization between the master thermostat and all the slave thermostats (in rooms for eTRVs, portable heaters/coolers, window/mini splits, or other zone thermostats) when the slave thermostats support the ‘eco’ or ‘away’ commands.
In ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (v8.4.5), I’ve also added some new fan settings in ScheduleSetup>fanSettings page in order to give finer control of the HVAC fan linked to ecobee thermostats by calling the newly setHeatDissipationTime() and setCoolDissipationTime() commands in My Ecobee device DTH.
With ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule, you now have all the following fan settings available and can customize them for each schedule in the smartapp:
- You can override the fan mode (circulate, on, auto) set for the current ecobee climate settings (or program) ;
- You can override the fan mode with conditions: ex. if the avg indoor temps collected from your own zone sensors vs. the ambient temp at the tstat is greater than a given offset value (ex. 5F), then turn on the fan; if lower, set it to auto The same logic can be done when the outdoor temp is greater than a temp threshold (ex. 80F);
- You can set the minimum fan runtime for a given schedule (ex. 5 minutes at Night, but 15 minutes during the day);
- You can now also set a different heating/cooling dissipation time at Nights vs. during the day. The heating/cooling dissipation time represents the desired fan runtime in seconds after a heating /cooling cycle to extract the hot/cool airflow from the ducts.
You can download the new versions at my store using the original sellfy link.
The new code is available at my store.
For more details about the all use cases supported, refer to ST community wiki:
P.S. For all ST users who have contributed to my support packages, the update has been done for you under your ST account (provided that I have your credentials), you don’t need to do anything: everything has been taken care of.
