I've installed what (I think to be, and what indicates is) 1.1.2, and when trying to manipulate the fan state to "always on" from the device window I get no reaction at all in the logs or at the thermostat, and after a short wait the "fan" drop-down list changes from the "always on" entry I set back to "auto on".

I'd have posted a log entry...if there was one. I turned log debugging entries on and nothing seems to happen at all.

I'm not sure where to turn next. I did try adding the thermostat again and nothing changed. I can manipulate the heat and cool points, change modes, but not affect the fan at all.

Any advice much appreciated!

The current code doesn’t have the ability to control the fan and just ignores any requests to change it. Fortunately there is an update in the works that adds fan control. Check it out here:

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Aha! Yes indeed someone IS interested in using fan control. If Ecobee would have simply added the ability to confine the fan "auto cycle" function (where you can chose x minutes every hour of fan operation) to certain hours, or certain "comfort settings" (like "only cycle the fan 5 minutes per hour when I"m away"), I probably wouldn't need it. When I used Venstars with Insteon modules it was simple to let Indigo manage it and cycle the fan x minutes every x hours when we're away at work for the day and cease doing so when we're home or during sleeping hours when the on and off operation of the fan tended to wake up the babies (or the noise sensitive wife). Ecobee though? Apparently that feature is too far afield for them to add.

Thank you for your efforts on the plug-in. I think I've seen my last random disconnect from the Ecobee back-end here lately. :D

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Fan changes are coming but delayed ..

While polishing up the changes so they can be merged in I've bungled up my workspace. I see where the problem is but I have to detangle some unrelated changes that I don't want to commit yet.

Stable fan changes coming soon!

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Hi,
I love this plugin when I can make it work!

I’m sorry if i missed the answer in these (very helpful) threads:

Q: When i need to “re-authenticate” my Indigo Plugin from their web site, I am unclear on what steps I actually need to take. I have tried just entering the plugin generated 4-char code, though i have also re-installed the whole plugin, and it won’t work for longer than minutes to hours? I can’t tell what i’m missing!

Thank you again for the plugin- it is so promising i bought a second Ecobee.

Re: Ecobee Plugin

I've been getting the following error today:

"SENSORNAME: couldn't format temperature value; is the sensor alive?"

The sensor is updating based on the last update timestamp and my triggers still work based on the temp in the room.

I've tried reloading the plugin (and disabled/enabled), but I immediately get the error in the log again.

Looks like it started a little after midnight with this error:

Ecobee Error plugin runConcurrentThread function returned or failed (will attempt again in 10 seconds)

It repeated this for about 30 minutes, then 5 hours later this error showed up:

"SENSORNAME: couldn't format temperature value; is the sensor alive?"

Any thoughts?

Re: Ecobee Plugin

This is a great plugin, thanks for all the work on it! One thing I was missing from it was the ability to set a comfort setting (Home, Away, Sleep, etc) via an action. I created the following PR that adds support for this:

https://github.com/jdhorne/indigo-ecobee-plugin/pull/13

I’d be grateful if one of the maintainers has a chance to check this out and see if it’s fit to merge. I was only able to test on a newer Ecobee Thermostat, not the Smart model, so I’m not sure how it would behave with one of those.

Re: Ecobee Plugin

I'm using version 1.1.2 of the plugin. Did this get resolved in any way? I read through all 8 pages but maybe I missed something? I'm getting the same error.

Right on. thanks. That would be pretty cool if was can control the fan to go on and off.

I'm also getting the following error when trying to set the ecobee to away. Any ideas on this one?

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Thanks for the plugin!

Have updated to Version 1.1.2, but still experiencing the need to re-authenticate at varying intervals. My understanding was that this version addressed this issue.

Have I missed something, or are others still experiencing this issue?

Regards,

mclass

Re: Ecobee Plugin

There have been numerous pull requests on GitHub that include fixes for stuff like this, ability to control fan, etc.

At this point, it may make sense to fork this into a different plugin or add some authorized people on github so all the burden doesn’t fall on the original creator of the plugin...

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Auth. issues here, too.

Happy to test any beta releases that aim to address the authentication issues. Thanks.

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Here's a temporary solution to setting your Ecobee to Away status (sort of) when your phones are away. You can use this until the Ecobee Plugin gets updated:

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Great Plugin but the authentication issues are frequent. I'm also using the Lutron, Haiku and Alexa mobile apps which authenticate with Ecobee and have not been a problem,

Thanks for working on a fix for this !

Re: Ecobee Plugin

Can anyone confirm whether the ecobee4 works with this plugin, and if so, how well? Trying to decide whether to get an ecobee3 or ecobee 4. Thanks!
