[OBSOLETE] Would you like to use any ST connected temp & motion sensors with Ecobee?

Hi Paul,

The EcobeeSetZoneWithSchedule smartapp available at my store can do it by creating zones inside your home. Your upstairs zone can then be triggered only during the evening/night schedules.

You can even choose the calculation method to be used for the temps collected at your sensors. You may want to use a different calculation method than just doing an average.

The calculation methods that can configured in the smartapp are the following:

  • Avg (Average) which is the default (this is similar to the ecobee3’s follow me feature)
  • Med (Median)
  • Min (MInimum)
  • Max (Maximum)
  • Heat Min/Cool Max: this method will take the minimum when the tstat’s mode is heating or the maximum when the tstat’s mode is cooling (useful when tstat’s mode is auto).

For more details, refer to this thread:

P.S. The smartappp can work with and without smart vents…
