So apparently I’m an idiot and misunderstood this smart app. (No sarcasm, I truly did). Here is an explanation of what I was trying to do and why it wouldn’t work that way. Looks like it works great for its intended purpose. Just hoping to help anyone out there who wants to do the same thing as I did save their $15. It’s a little complicated to set up, but once you do it looks like it’ll do exactly what it’s supposed to do. Plus side, developer does email back quickly.
Not sure why pics didn’t upload in order. I’ll try to fix that.
I’ve been reading a lot about your app and it is very impressive. I just have one question, does the app allow for the temperature for each room to be set? I have a situation where my thermostat is in my bedroom and I would like it to be set to 68 F when running the A/C but I want my kids rooms to be set at 72 F/73 F, does your app allow for this flexibility?
Today, I made some changes to ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule and ScheduleTstatZones so that switching to alternative cooling and back to cool or auto mode (when needed) would be done automatically when the right outdoor/indoor conditions are met:
Both smartapps can either use an outdoor temp/humidity table to determine if the ideal conditions are met to use an evaporative cooler or damper switch(es).
The alternative cooling can also be triggered based only on an outdoor temp threshold when it’s more appropriate.
If the outdoor/indoor conditions are not met, then the smartapps can restore the original thermostat mode (cool or auto) to ‘cool’ the house in a more standard way.
These features are added on top of all the features available. For the list of features and screen shots, refer to the top of this thread:
ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule and ScheduleTstatZones are available now for download at my store.
So I am thinking of buying 2gig CT100 Z-Wave thermostat. What I am wondering is can this app monitor my zwave motion sensors to decide if anyone is home and lower the temp when no one is home, and raise it based on geofencing and motion detectors? I absolutely do not mind paying the money. I believe you should be compensated. Especially if this app will make that thermostat work like an eccobee would by monitoring my sensors.
