However, none of my ST devices ( i.e. Aeon Multisensor 6 ) that report temp and motion, show up when start up the ecobeeRemoteSensorInit app. I just get a blank page.
The readme referenced above mentions: "If you have a blank page in ecobeeRemoteSensorInit or “a unexpected error occurred” while
executing the smartapp:
d) Make sure that you have the latest ecobee firmware (at least v3.6) at the tstat as motion sensors
are not detected prior to that firmware version.
And, of course, make sure that all your remote sensors are actually reporting to the physical thermostat…
In some cases, remote sensors may have some connection issues with your physical thermostat, and my code is not able
to detect them.
I have confirmed firmware but I’m confused by the “actually report to the physical thermostat”. How do I get the aeon multisensor to report to the physical thermostat? Is this done thru the ecobee app? In my ecobee app, I have no remote sensors listed which is what I would expect since I don’t have any ecobee remote sensors. Am I misunderstanding the functionality of the remotesensor app???
For your use case, the smartapps to be used are either MonitorAndSetEcobeeTemp (at my github) or ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (which has many more features, ex. zones & schedules and it’s available at my store).
For more details about both smartapps, refer to the ST community wiki:
Thanks so much for the response and getting me straightened out. I assumed ( incorrectly ) that after clicking the first link, which brings users automatically to the readme, that was what I needed to do… after adding MonitorAndSetEcobeeTemp.src as an app, I got things working.
Hi, yes, any connected ST temp/motion sensors can be used. It’s a one way integration which means that the temp/motion values will be used to adjust the setpoints under SmartThings, but you won’t see the sensor’s values at the ecobee portal or the app, just the setpoints adjustment (as a hold).
If you want to have more granular control of which connected ST sensor(s) you’re using at a given period of the day, I’d recommend to use ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule, which is a far more advanced smartapp at my store.
Hey folks…Hopefully quick question. I recently added a second remote sensor to my setup and now I am having issues where my remote sensors are not functioning accurately in ST. Both sensors work great in Ecobee but they don’t match in ST. I tried re-adding them to ST and that didn’t help.
I am not seeing motion reported at all in ST and the temp seems to be stuck at the same temp even though it is reporting every 5 minutes. Do I need to go all the back to the beginning by removing the smart apps and device handler from IDE?
I have updated the code, and published, and the sensors are operating the
same… Here are the versions I am using. I also noticed my away and
resume smart apps don’t seem to be working as they should. I’m wondering
if I mucked something up. Thanks

As indicated at the ST community wiki, this smartapp doesn’t allow manual overrides. You need then to increase your setpoints using the ecobee comfort settings in the ecobee app or at the ecobee portal.
However, if you often change your thermostat setpoints manually, I’d recommend to contribute to ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule as this paid smartapp has the logic to allow manual overrides (and much more using the concept of “zones”):
