Honeywell T6 Z-Wave - Missing Thermostat Mode (Auto) on 2.2.9.146

I have read virtually every post here related to the HW T6 thermostat. Have seen similar types of reports but not this one.

PROBLEM
I do not see the 'Auto' Thermostat Mode in the built-in T6 driver as a drop down.

Screen Shot 2021-12-30 at 5.12.17 PM

Also, 'Auto' mode is not listed in the 'Current States' summary info on the driver settings page:

BACKGROUND
The 'Auto' Thermostat Mode is enabled within the Installer Device Setup menu as ISU #300. 'Auto' mode is NOT turned on by default but it is enabled on my devices.

Also, ISU #303-Auto Differential is set to 5°F so that Auto mode allows a greater ∆T before changing operation mode (i.e. Heat to Cool). (Though, this is more of a comfort feature on this newer device because the T6 has "built-in compressor protection in the form of a minimum off timer that prevents the compressor from restarting too early after a shutdown.")

QUESTION
What am I missing? I've seen posts where 'Auto' thermostat mode is shown in screenshots so I know it existed once upon a time. Is this a driver issue?

Thanks!

Device Ref: Honeywell T6 PRO Z-WAVE THERMOSTAT TH6320ZW2003 /U

What driver are you using? Also I think isu 300 needs turned on (Auto changeover)

Yes, confirmed, 300 needs to be set to on

Thanks. As my post says, it's on.

oops didn't see that. What driver are you using?

Anyone developing a driver will probably already have this info but dropping it here as reference...

Sorry, I misread it. Don't use that driver, use the generic z-wave thermostat driver, click configure and then refresh. It's better than the normal t6 driver and recommended by the dev's. It will pull all capable attributes

Tried changing driver on one device. Saw the desired settings appear. Sent message to support requesting 'official' position on the built-in named driver. Awaiting response from @bcopeland.

One further observation, the Generic driver will not allow the setting of a Thermostat Mode in Rule Machine. But, the built-in named Honeywell driver will allow it. Weird.

Also, seems like the T6's Home/Away mode is a proprietary setting and is not exposed to HE. Read a related post somewhere... Anyone know the answer?

I’m not sure but I think the virtual thermostat app will give you those options. Someone correct me if I’m wrong please

It will. I have done this before I stopped using my T6 Pro.

It isn't exposed via z-wave to any controller, not just Hubitat.
