I got all my window sensors set up on Monday, and the couple that had pairing issues fixed up on Tuesday. I was playing around with the Thermostat Auto Off smart app today, and noticed that it doesn’t appear to be restoring the mode after closing all the windows.
I set it to a 15 second delay just to test opening and closing, figuring maybe it waits for the delay period to elapse before restoring the previous state.
- I checked that the thermostat was in heating mode, and it was
- I opened a window and waited 15 seconds
- I checked the thermostat and saw that the state was “Off” as it should be now
- Then I closed the window and waited over 15 seconds, and the state never changed back to heat
It sounds like it’s supposed to recall the mode that was set when it turned the thermostat off, and that’s what I think I see in the logs:
It shows thermostatMode: heat on both the open and closed event, but there is no corresponding Turning on thermostat due to contact closed or some such message.
