I have three smart devices that each monitor the room temperature in order to control my upstairs climate via a SmartThings (ST) App automation…
1 x 2GIG CT100 (Z-Wave Thermostat) — refer to as “Thermostat”
2 x SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor (newest model) — refer to as “Multi Sensor”
So I have setup all three devices next to each other for this test, in order to get the closest temperature readings. I have noticed that the ST App displays the °F in whole numbers only.
So when the Thermostat reads 73.5°F, the app rounds up to display 74°F. That would not be a huge issue, except for the fact that the app displays that same room temp (73.5°) as 73°F for the Multi Sensor. So essentially, the ST App is rounding the decimal point up for the Thermostat’s display, and down for the Multi Sensor’s display…
#1) Is there a way to fix this…? I don’t believe ‘Temperature Offset’ can fix anything — The rounding difference is over a decimal place, and Temp Offset only allows whole number (+/-) values.
#2) Is the ST App using these rounded display values in its automation routines? Or will or are these values simply for display, and the automations will use the real decimal point values straight from the Thermostat…?
