Indeed I got 4 of them today as well though now it does not disconnect any more the command is not passed. I am testing something else as of today. It is odd. It's been working for a full week and now getting 100% failure. Something must be going with the API since I have changed nothing on my setup.

It's been very quiet for mine for a couple of weeks (v1.9). Just got one yesterday or the day before. That with 4 Vera systems & about 9 thermostats.

Very strange, Now have had 36 hours without an error. I suspect ecobee to have been updating their servers. The mobile has had 2 new versions in 2 days.

all quiet here as well. I agree that it seems to maybe be something on the Ecobee side.

Yeah it's been very quiet. I've had one event which was mitigated by my new retry code 3 days ago and then nothing since. Good news is that the auto-retry worked but I will need more events to validate.

I updated to the latest Vera UI a week or so ag.  I installed the Ecobee app today.  When I click the "Get Pin" the green icon spins a while and then nothing.  Any idea what to do next or what to look into next?

Sorry if you have not read the latest 4-5 pages of this long thread, you probably want to read through them. I would need to know what system you installed this on. Ecobee no longer support older security protocols and what you are describing seems to indicate you are trying this either on UI5 or on an older ecobee which cannot support the new security protocols.

"Sorry if you have not read the latest 4-5 pages of this long thread, " ... correct there.  with so many pages I feel like a mosquito over a nudist camp ... i don't know where to start :D

- My Ecobee is an Ecobee Smart model (poor name for it ... see it here: https://www.amazon.com/ecobee-Smart-Thermostat-Heat-2-Screen/dp/B004150PJG)
- Vera Light G firmware version 1.7.1040
- Whatever is the latest UI (where do  find the UI version?)

Ok I think your problem is the Vera Light G. I suspect it is running also on Backfire which is an antique version of OpenWRT and does not support TLS1.2. You would have to have at least a Vera edge for the plugin to work.

It would be cool to have a definitive list of which hardware/firmware combinations do not support tlsv1_2.  In the alternative or in addition, some way of capturing the failure from trying to use tlsv1_2 and showing it in place of the PIN like "UNSUP" or something.

So far I only know of the Vera Edge, Vera Plus and Vera Secure running Barrier Breaker on UI7 which supports TLSv1.2. UI5 and Vera 3, Vera Light and all other Veras. run on Backfire which does not support it.
