I finally got my Honeywell thermostats to stay connected to SmartThings. I have created a rule in SharpTools to control a thermostat, but it doesn’t always change the temp. I’m sure it’s a problem with SmartThings. So, I’m trying to create some automations in SmartThings to control the temp. If I create something simple like change temp at 8 pm, it works, but I need something a bit more complicated.
I can create an automation that changes temp if my wife leaves, but I’m having trouble with the logic/triggers for when she returns. I tried using a time period and device presence (she is a Life360 device so I can track presence), but it wouldn’t trigger. I tried using her device as a precondition and not as a precondition, but couldn’t get it to work.
So, any thoughts on what settings to use to trigger the automation? If wife leaves, one rule resets temp. But I need a rule for when she returns to set a different temp. I figure I need four rules, one for 0430, one for 0600, one for 1400, and one for 2100 hours. But they would need to work if wife returns at any point between the first time and the next time. I have one rule for this in SharpTools, and probably could create one rule in WebCore, but not so sure how long that’ll be around, so figure I need five automations in SmartThings. Thoughts? Thanks!
