[RELEASE] Resilient My Ecobee Devices and ecosystem V6- migrated to custom capabilities & automation (presence, comfort settings, and more)!

Absolutely I just wanted there to be full disclosure of said request as a condition of future updates on this thread since it wasn’t mentioned either here or at your store. IMO, its kinda the same thing as when a reviewer discloses a manufacturer discount on Amazon as a condition of their review. Either way, keep up the good work.

I am getting this error:

e09e24d4-1d54-4a83-89a6-6c1a93d055f2 7:57:32 AM: error groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: physicalgraph.device.CommandService.executeAction() is applicable for argument types: (physicalgraph.device.cache.DeviceDTO, java.lang.Boolean) values: [Thermostat, true]
Possible solutions: executeAction(physicalgraph.device.IDevice, java.lang.String), executeAction(physicalgraph.device.IDevice, java.util.List), executeAction(physicalgraph.device.IDevice, physicalgraph.device.HubAction), executeAction(physicalgraph.device.IDevice, physicalgraph.device.HubMultiAction), executeAction(physicalgraph.device.IDevice, physicalgraph.device.ParallelAction), executeAction(physicalgraph.device.IDevice, physicalgraph.device.RestAction) @ line 193

Just wondering what my actions should be? Reinstall Ecobeeinit or the DTH?? I tried running Ecobeeinit smart app again and the error came back.

Hi @TN_Oldman, this exception is thrown by the ST backend from time to time. It doesn’t seem to negatively impact the operations of the DTH. It’s an old ST problem that has not been fixed yet.

Refer to the troubleshooting section of the ST community wiki for more details (item 12, last one):

Regards.

P.S. If you have any issue with My Ecobee device, please contact me via email at services@maisonsecomatiq.com. It’s easier for me to keep track of any customer context & issues through gmail conversations.

Okay, I will do that from now on. Thanks for the quick response.

Thank you for the easy integration! Works way better than the remote sensors for seeing if the house is occupied!
The app is amazing and would recommend anyone to pay the minimum of $20USD for it.

Question: How easy would it be to tie in area weather into the temperature settings?

For instance, in the summer our temperature ranges daily, some days it’s ~30°C, others it’s 21°C. I would love that when its above 23°C outside to auto set my temperatures during the daytime (when I’m at work) to keep the house cooler, so the AC won’t have to try and keep up when I arrive home.

Maybe that’s too much…PM me.

Thank you very much.

I would like to say big thank you to Yves Racine for developing Ecobee-ST integration. I have been using it for about 1.5 years with no major issues. App updates are quite frequent (for paid contributors) and Yves Racine has always been quick to respond to any issues/questions I had.

Always on top of the ever changing iOS or Android versions and the smartthings system. His app updates are usually available before any of the items mentioned above have changed and have detailed instructions on how to update them.

GREAT WORK!!

Smartthings community.

I thing yvesracine work on the ecobee -smartthings - keen project is reliable and has been a significant contribution to the ecobee - smartthings community. However his hostile and aggressive sales tactics are down right rude as a paying customer. After being an early adopter, paying for what accounted for beta software on an unreliable platform as customers were now being told if we do not either by a support package or give a positive review we will not remain on a support list. This is an aggressive sales tactic for such a small community app.

Yves I please remember you get more flies with honey than with vinegar.

Hi,

As specified in my email, here is the reason for my decision:

If you don’t agree with it, that’s your decision.

P.S. I’m not selling my device and smartapps, I’m asking for a contribution… I can tell you that I’m not getting rich with this development on the ST platform when I take into account the amount of time I’ve put into my solutions.

Regards.

@yvesracine,

Your ecobee integration into the ST ecosystem has been a huge help for my home and HVAC automation; moreover, your continued support for both your devices and applications really makes the whole experience great. Keep up the fantastic work, and I really appreciate your continued support.

I’ve had an EcoBee for about 6 months now, but just switched to this custom Device Handler and SmartApp a few weeks ago. I haven’t done a ton with it yet, but the ecobeeChangeMode app has been AWESOME. I work from home with pretty random hours (Dev teams in the US, Europe, India, and Australia and I have to overlap work hours as much as possible depending on which project I’m working with the most that week), so the EcoBee built-in scheduling and up to a 2 hour delay for presence-sensing just wasn’t cutting it.

Now I’m able to change the EcoBee mode instantly based on SmartThings Routines and Modes. I use the SmartThings built-in geofencing to set the EcoBee to/from Away mode, and the Good Night! and Good Morning! routines to switch between the EcoBee Night and Home modes. I don’t do this because I don’t really have a “Schedule” but with the right ecobeeChangeMode setting, you can also still use the built in EcoBee Scheduling to override the SmartApp setting if you want.

I’ve started playing with the Tips now too, and I have seen a couple that clued me in on some advanced EcoBee settings that I didn’t even know existed. We’ll see how much impact those settings changes have in the longer run, but the Tips definitely helped encourage me to make some changes that I wouldn’t have known about or felt comfortable adjusting without the insight from the Tips feature.

Your ecobee integration is one of the few things keeping me on ST. Multi-sensors drop like flies but the ecobee stays connected.

Thanks

Hi,

The new version of Ask Alexa (v2.1.6) now integrates all ecobee custom climates that you can set up at your home for more comfort.

Alexa:. Ask SmartThings set ecobee to bedtime

This integration works only with My Ecobee device available at my store:

Hi,

I just sent a major update to all my active contributors.

  • For iOS only (and few Android devices), added a runtime graph at the bottom of My ecobee device which shows the Daily, Avg Weekly, and Avg Monthly runtime stats according to your thermostat mode.

  • The graph displays the stats, the outdoor temp and heatpoints/setpoints in the past week for trend analysis.
    You need to install the runtime stats generation smartapps in order to take full advantage of the graph.

  • To get more HTMLtile support for Android & other devices, please contact support@smarttthings.com

See the graph picture below:

My ecobee device is available now for download at my store:
