The app reads the operating state of the thermostat to decide which settings to send. If the DTH for your Sensibo device is reporting it correctly then it should work fine.

Thanks RBoy. Wahts DTH?

One more question, how does this app know if it should be heating or cooling? Thanks!

It checks the current state of the thermostat (Auto, Heat, Cooling etc). It’s best to leave it to Auto state and change your heating/cooling setpoints accordingly. E.g. if you don’t want heat to kick in, set the heat setpoint to 40.

Would I be able to simply have the thermostat turn off if the doors and/or windows are left open longer than a few minutes, then have it turn back on once closed? That’s really what I want to do most.

I couldn’t find any info on this on the thread. Would it be possible at some point to add a feature based on the temperature\forecast outside? I think nest\ecobee might do this. I use this primarily for an away thermostat at our vacation home and then use the 5\2 when we are there. The house is set at 50 degrees when away, but I would love for it to be deactivated if the forecast won’t get below freezing for days on end.

@RBoy , I have been using one of your thermostat apps for a few years now, no issue. But starting now, I’m one of the lucky bunches in a polar vortex and wish to place a PERMANENT temperature hold until I release it on my thermostat, but I can’t find a way to accomplish it. I have a CT-100 thermostat and I’m using (I think) your ultimate mode thermostat. Temp holds work (I can override the set temp, but after a time it reverts…but I haven’t caught how long the temp hold holds for).

I need to up my temp in the house in preparation for -50 outside temps and would like a permanent (24hr anyways) hold. Is there a way to do this?
