Well, you need to apply a positive temp delta (ex. +3) in heat mode to get a zone warmer.

The calculation is explained at the wiki (see link above).

Since the update, my vents have all quit working. No adjustments are being made. I did not realize that was the issue since I have been out of town quite a bit. What do Ineed to do to trace the problem and get this resolved. I have purchased your app.

Hi,

Which version of the Keen Home device handler are you using?

Your issue is probably not related to the my smartapp, but the Device Type Handler (DTH), you’re using. My smartapps still work well in several user locations and nothing has changed in terms of setting the vents.

If you’re under the Hub V2 or V3, you’d need to use this one (for the Keen Home vents):

As indicated in the header:

10-27-2018 : Updated to account for Keen’s zigbee bug when opening a vent - it can’t anymore with a normal zigbee on command. Using a set level command instead as a workaround

Otherwise, please refer to the ST community wiki for troubleshooting and configuration issues:

P.S. If you’re using an ecobee thermostat, make sure also that your thermostat is connected and running smoothly under ST as there has been a lot of ecobee server issues:

I have noticed my ecobee disconnecting from SmartThings and my keen app. I have been asked at least twice so far to sign back in to SmartThings and keen with my ecobee account.
I bet that was the problem.

I have noticed that custom codes for ecobee and smart vents stopped working after the new update from smartthings and release of the new Smartthing app. It is a mess for many now to deal with disconnected devices and multiple locations. See another threat about it.

Hi @rhconcepts,

I haven’t experienced your disconnect issue at my home with my Ecobee device and my smart vents. I also monitor many user locations as part of my support packages at my store.

For My ecobee device’s users, please make sure to have some watchdogs installed within My EcobeeInit (service manager). You can use one of your Keen smart vents as watchdog to restart the regular polling in case of ST scheduling issue.

Refer to the ST community wiki for more details:

Hi,

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 some enhancements to ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (v8.6) in order to set the auxMaxOutdoorTemp attribute for controlling the maximum temperature above which auxHeat (or emergency heat) is not called. The smartapp now allows you to set up different values during the day depending on the time and outdoor temperature. You can set some different auxMaxOutdoorTemp values when the outdoorTemp is less than a minimum outdoor temp value or greater than outdoor temp maximum value.

You can download the new version 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:

http://thingsthataresmart.wiki/index.php?title=EcobeeSetZoneWithSchedule#Look_.26_Feel

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.

Regards

Question - do you have both ecobees working with a single furnace (or other kind of heating/cooling system)? If so, does one ecobee send heating/cooling requests to the other ecobee? I would have a full fledged ecobee in each zone with display and controls rather than the passive temperature sensor and trying to find a way. Thanks!

Hi,

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 some significant enhancements to ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (v8.7), ScheduleTstatZones (v8.7), and ScheduleRoomTempControl (v4.5) :

    • The new versions are now listening to any “slave” physical thermostat(s) setpoint changes (ex. eTRVs, portable heaters/coolers, window/mini splits, baseboards, fireplaces, etc) in order to adjust the virtual zone devices’ setpoint for easier control.

    • The Virtual zone device (v1.1) has now the standard thermostatSetpoint capability which means an easier control via ActionTiles (popular custom dashboard) or other smartapps (such as webcore).


You can download the new version at my store using the original sellfy link.

The new code is available at my store.
