Plug-in for ecobee thermostats in development

(1/175) > >>

watou:
Hi all, just a note to say that I've done most of the development for a new plug-in for ecobee thermostats.  I'm not sure exactly when it will be available, but it will work with both their consumer- and commercial-level thermostats.

The current state of the plug-in is documented here: http://cocu.la/vera/ecobee/README.md.  One of the "fun" features of this thermostat (and the plug-in) is the ability to automate a text message from Vera that will go to the thermostat's display (or to all of your thermostats at once) in a simple UPnP SendMessage action.  So property managers can send "close the window" or "pay the rent" message to their rental properties! :)

If you have any thoughts, ideas or suggestions of what should be in the plug-in, please share!

Regards,
watou

Hi Watou,

I just read your announcement and just wanted to let you know that I am really excited about your project. I use Ecobee thermostats in our house and summerhouse and the prospect of being able to integrate with Vera is great. It has been on my wish list for a long time. Keep up the good work. I look forward to work with the plugin when ready - or if ever you need testing done.

Kind regards,
Barry

watou:
I'm very glad to hear that, Barry!  I'm eager to release it to get some more testing with it, but it's looking good so far.  I will post here when it's ready for testing.

Thanks very much for the encouragement.

watou:
Do any ecobee thermostat users out there have a "My Apps" widget in their ecobee web portals, like on the settings tab?  My plugin is working fine with the current state of the web API, but I would like to involve others to test the code before official release. 

Thanks for any assistance,
watou

watou:
Sorry for the late reply; very spotty Internet here.

I don't have better info regarding when My Apps will be generally available.  Hopefully soon.

The plugin ought to work with all of their thermostats, but it's only been tested against about 18 Smart Si thermostats so far.

Sorry I don't have better info. I tried to accommodate more testers but was rebuffed.

Regards,
watou
