For those of you who have an ecobee thermostat, I just created a new smartapp that monitors the outdoor temperature and humidity on a regular basis (in minutes specified as input parameter) and adjusts the ecobee’s temp according to certain thresholds given by the ST user.
If some conditions are met, then it can increase/decrease the heating/cooling setPoints or resume
the program set by the ecobee user.
In brief, the smartapp allows automatic adjustments of the cooling/heating setpoints according to indoor/outdoor conditions. This is particularly useful in the Winter/Summer where outdoor temperature and humidity can vary throughout the day.
You can enable/disable the smartapp with a button on/off tile (ex.virtual switch).
The smartapp can use an outdoor sensor or a virtual weather station, such as
to get the oudoor temperature and humidity.

This smartapp only works with my custom ecobee device at
And, finally, all the smartapps/custom ecobee device can run in Farenheits or in Celcius acccording
to your temperature scale of choice.
If you like the custom Ecobee device and related smartapps, please support the developer:
Hello, actually you should then create multiple instances of the smartapp for each of your thermostats. This way you can associate different sensors for your thermostats. To do this, just rename the app on the last screen.
As for the weatherstation, I believe that there is a refresh() that is done on a regular basis in the smartapp.
P.S. I just checked in the last version at github (v1.9.2) which does call the refresh() on a regular basis.
