Ecobee



  • Checking the icon of the thermostat - what are the options here? mine says ON, but the system is in idle (neither heating nor cooling). Is that what you meant? I have noticed the motion icon - I like that!

    If you could toggle the displayed info, wouldn’t all the icons shift over to the right, if there was less on the line?

    Elaboration, I think these would be the options, to be honest, I think it would just be System Heat Mode and System Cool Mode that I would be intereted in, I don’t have the capabilities for the other icons. I know a number of modules that I have allow for the toggle of colour on / off:

    Right now it will show if the Thermostat is set to a mode (ON) or off (OFF)
    First image is OFF, Second is set to AUTO (69-64):
    Screen_Shot_2018_04_06_at_10_38_16_AM
    Screen_Shot_2018_04_06_at_10_41_20_AM

    That being said, to show when it’s ACTUALLY running I need to figure what is the best way. (if that is important)

    If you could toggle the displayed info, wouldn’t all the icons shift over to the right, if there was less on the line?

    Not the way the I have the code running right now 😞

    So you want to see the colors in the module? or see them when the machine is running only?

    Thanks for the feedback. I can’t way to go back to work on it 🙂



  • OK, what would be “important” to me, would be to show what the system is doing:

    So if the AC is running, then a Blue Snowflake, if the Heating is running, an Orange Flame, it would just need to be one of them, not both, as per the app example. If nothing is actually running, then white would be fine.

    For example:

    Heating:

    Cooling:

  • @stephenmelody GOT it! I will add to the module! Let me know if you have other changes you want and how the module is working for you!



  • let’s start with that and Celsius. Let me know when it’s ready and I’ll test it for you!

    Thanks, this module is going to be great!!



  • Installed module last night … Great work! and Thank you again for creating this module!

    While installing I now understand why the CODE from ecobee module may have been missed by others.
    I was expecting to see the code and still took a minute or second look to see the code at the very bottom of the last sentence in the instructions on screen. If this CODE could maybe be larger or maybe a color that stands out?? Might help a little .

    I too would like to choose which sensors are shown…or show them in a specific order.

    One more thing that I would love would be making the module smaller.
    I am still learning all of this and I played with Custom.css but of course the module will start to cut the wording and sensors off from visually being seen from the bottom up.

    I will play more with it tonight… but this is awesome already! Thank you!



  • @fabbr any updates?

    I’ve had the module running for a while now, but I’ve been away. When I got back, it had forgotten the ecobee module was authorised so I had to do that again.



  • @stephenmelody The way ecobee API works is: if you don’t check the status for a period of time it will make you reauthorize. Let’s say: You turn your mirror off for a couple of days, when you turn on you most likely will have to reauthorize. I don’t see a way around that 😞

    And I will be working on the changes this week and post a branch for the new code here for us to test.

    Thanks 🙂



  • OK, it wasn’t a complaint, just some feedback in case it helps. I have my mirror set up so that only the screen turns off when no one is home, but the pi keeps on trucking in the background. I’d have to look and see what happened, but I got it reauthorised and I’ll see if it does it again.

    Looking forward to new code!!!



  • @stephenmelody hahah I took it as feedback 🙂 I need a lot of it to make this as usable as possible. keep them coming
