[RELEASE] Universal Ecobee Suite, Version 1.8.01

Please see the first item in the FAQ (you need to manually remove the temporary devices).

That’s what I get for doing this at 6am before coffee. That was it - thanks!

Please get the 1.8.19 version of Ecobee Suite Routines and let me know if that fixes it…

Barry - Awesome! It seems to work. I will continue testing and will let you know if anything comes up. Thank you so much for your great work.

Hi, Barry,

While testing the mode/routine helper for other scenarios, I came across a couple of cases that still generate an error. If “Switches On/Off” is selected as a trigger, the app successfully finishes the action including turning on/off a virtual switch as an action. However, if “Ecobee Program Change” is selected as a trigger, an error is generated when trying to turn on/off a virtual switch as an action. See the following live log.

I suspect the mode/routing app still has an issue when executing “switch on/off” as an action when trigger is Ecobee Program Change. (And possibly other triggers such as Location Mode Change although I haven’t tested it.)

Thank you for your attention to this.

Fixed in Ecobee Suite Routines, v1.8.20

Fixes issues with turning on/off switches

Great. It seems to have fixed the issue. I will keep testing.

Has anyone else noticed a problem with Smart Circulation Helper since the last firmware push? The IDE log looks like everything is fine so I’m suspecting a problem with the ecobee firmware. What I’m seeing is that when the ecobee is placed into hold it is ignoring any changes in the fan runtime. For example, if the fan is at 55 min/hr when the hold happens it is staying at 55 until the hold is lifted. When I look at the log I can see the fan times reduce as expected until it reaches 5 min/hr. However, the fan continues to run at 55 min/hr even though both the ST and ecobee aps both show it should be 5 min/hr.

Please report this to Ecobee support - perhaps if they see it coming from multiple people they will actually look into it (you are the 2nd or 3rd person to mention it).

Thanks, I’ll pass it along.
