What makes it “Universal” you ask?
Well, to my knowledge, this is the first and only Ecobee integration that runs on both SmartThings and Hubitat! I’ve managed to create a single code base that delivers near 100% identical capabilities for both hub platforms!
Beginning with this release, I’m not going to try to cover all the new features and capabilities here in the Community. Instead I’ll ask that you visit my GitHuB repository and find the What’s New section of the updated README.md that you’ll find there.
But just as a teaser, release 1.7.00 brings some neat new capabilities, including:
- New Thermal Comfort Helper that will actively adjust your setpoints based on the scientific concept of optimizing your environment’s temperature based on humidity, clothing, activity and personal preference. Thanks to @richardpeng for this one…
- New Working From Home Helper that will automatically override your “Away” program if anyone is still home after a specified time of day;
- Updated Smart Modes/Routines/Switches/Programs Helper, that now supports initiating actions based on a (virtual) switch, and/or adds the ability to turn on/off switches as part of the Actions;
- New Notifications features, including the ability to have notifications spoken over your choice of speakers
