This is all good inforvs007 wrote: ↑ OP, in order to use the Ecobee effectively and efficiently, there are a few things you need to do:
1. Invest in additional remote sensors and put them throughout the house. They are key in making your whole house comfortable by allowing Ecobee to know which rooms/areas are occupied, and in those occupied room/areas, let Ecobee average out the temperatures and achieve a happy medium. This would prevent 2nd floor rooms to get too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. With just the main Ecobee and just one remote sensor, the system won't have enough information about all the areas of your house to sense which rooms are occupied and which to include for the temperature averaging.
2. Link your Ecobee to the geofencing feature of Homekit, SmartThings, and other home automation platforms. That way, when you leave the house, Ecobee will know for sure that you've left and will put the comfort mode to Away, thus giving you some savings when you are not in the house. It has the Smart Home & Away feature, which relies on the remote sensors, which is another reason to put enough of them around the house for Ecobee to know if you're home or not.

Haha I know, luckily my house is a small bungalow so its not that expensive to keep warm in the winter. Extra lucky that my GF likes the same temp range as I do so no fighting over the settings.rocking23nf wrote: ↑ i prefer to turn my AC on and off manually, i found if it automate it i had days where it was heating or cooling when i didnt want it to.
the poster above wow, i wouldnt be able to live at your house.
my house is 21 in the winter, and at night i like it 19 degrees in the summer.
