I've never gotten this to work - hoping someone knows how to fix this...

Example:
Manually set the TStat to ESM
Have a Vera scene, or use the Device to select Normal / Run
 ... nothing happens. It never changes the mode.

Anyone know hot to get Vera to change the mode?

It's not obvious ... but you can go into Energy Saving Mode with:

luup.call_action("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:SwitchPower1", "SetTarget" {newTargetValue=0}, ThermostateDeviceID);


And return to previous mode with:
luup.call_action("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:SwitchPower1", "SetTarget" {newTargetValue=1}, ThermostateDeviceID);

Basically you are treating the Thermostat as a Binary switch!
