@bravenel thanks for taking time to develop this cool app combo for us.
Recently I ditched my two Ecobee's tstat, I decided that I would like to go less cloud dependant as it makes me uncomfortable the huge amount of telemetry being gathered on my behalf, also the polling of the apps would peg my usage stats on the particular apps.
Now I bought two HoneyWell T6 Pro and using the outstanding drivers by @bcopeland, thanks Bryan.
After giving a spin to your apps, found myself contrived in my decision as I was hoping to be able to perform similar automations as my former tstat.
Feel that Thermostat Controller and Scheduler are getting there were it needs to be, but is missing some basic automation available on almost any "smart" thermostat on the market.
I was hoping to give my humble opinion and maybe give some ideas.
-My number one omission to the current apps is regarding the the remote temperature and humidity sensors. Because I knew I was going to migrate from Ecobee, I went to lengths to make sure I would place temp/humid sensors on the same spots as I had with Ecobee.
The way the remote sensors were used is by modes (I know there is modes option on Controller, bear with me) , much like hubitat does location modes. But not only modes is necessary, but partitioning of the remote temp/humid sensors by mode. In other words, each mode will have a specific set of temp/humid sensors assigned to that particular mode. For example, during night I would like to average only my master bedroom and omit the rest, but then during the morning, another thermostat mode kicks in and a different set of remote temp/humid sensor will be used for averaging.
-This second point is easily doable by other means like RM, but regardless it would be nice.
One of the signature features of "smart" tstat is the ability to automatically go into ecomode or away mode whenever a threshold of time had gone by without tripping a PIR motion sensor or any other presence sensors like a door contact. This feature would mimic a very similar behavior from current WIFI enabled tstat and would turn the "dumb" tstat on a real "smart" tstat.
My two cents.
