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

@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.
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!
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
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:
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
Does the heat symbol change colour depending on whether the system is heating or cooling, like it does on the app? (orange flame for heating, blue snowflake for cooling). In the example below, it’s currently 68, targeting 71. The app shows the flame in orange, that would be nice to quickly visualise if the system is running.
Currently No. I could add that tho. Currently the way you can check if the system is running or not is by checking the icon of the thermostat. It will change depending on the running status. I did that because a lot of people don’t like to have colors on their Mirrors. However, if you think this would make it better, elaborate on the different status and what should be displayed and I will work on having that as an option!
If you haven’t notice, when there’s motion the icon of the sensor also changes
Can the order in which the sensors are presented be set? For example, I’d like my Thermostat to be at the top, not the bottom
Not currently. The results of the API will always give the Thermostat as the last “device” I can have that as an option also. Any other order change that you think should happen?
It would be nice to be able to toggle what you see, for example, on my thermostat, I’m not too bothered about the humidity, so it would be nice to toggle that off - that would make the module smaller on my screen.
I will add that an option, keep in mind that you won’t save any space on the module, you only will see less information.
Great work by the way, I’m happy this is a new module, I’ve been hoping for this one for a while!!!
Here’s what I see
I am happy that it’s working! I have spend countless hours working on it.

@muffinimal I really like Discord. The good thing about using this forum tho is that everyone can see your conversation and benefits from the answers that we get/give
