Ecobee Actions

The Ecobee Action bundle provides actions such as setting and clearing program holds, sending a text message to the thermostat’s display, renaming a remote wireless sensor, and other functions that cannot be performed by setting object properties.

Prerequisites

The Ecboee Action bundle requires that the Ecobee Binding (1.x) is also installed. Read the Ecobee function API documentation to be sure you know the rules for calling these actions.

Actions

  • ecobeeAcknowledge(String selection, String thermostatIdentifier, String ackRef, String ackType, Boolean remindMeLater) - Acknowledge an alert.
  • ecobeeControlPlug(String selection, String plugName, String plugState, Date startDateTime, Date endDateTime, String holdType, Number holdHours) - Control the on/off state of a plug by setting a hold on the plug.
  • ecobeeCreateVacation(String selection, String name, Number coolHoldTemp, Number heatHoldTemp, Date startDateTime, Date endDateTime, String fan, Number fanMinOnTime) - Create a vacation event on the thermostat.
  • ecobeeDeleteVacation(String selection, String name) - Delete a vacation event from a thermostat.
  • ecobeeResetPreferences(String selection) - Set all user configurable settings back to the factory default values.
  • ecobeeResumeProgram(String selection, Boolean resumeAll) - Remove the currently running event providing the event is not a mandatory demand response event.
  • ecobeeSendMessage(String selection, String text) - Send an alert message to the thermostat.
  • ecobeeSetHold(String selection, Number coolHoldTemp, Number heatHoldTemp, String holdClimateRef, Date startDateTime, Date endDateTime, String holdType, Number holdHours) - Set the thermostat into a hold with the specified temperature.
  • ecobeeSetHold(String selection, Map<String, Object> params, Date startDateTime, Date endDateTime, String holdType, Number holdHours) - Set the thermostat into a hold with the specified event params.
  • ecobeeSetOccupied(String selection, Boolean occupied, Date startDateTime, Date endDateTime, String holdType, Number holdHours) - Switches a (EMS model only) thermostat from occupied mode to unoccupied, or vice versa.
  • ecobeeUpdateSensor(String selection, String name, String deviceId, String sensorId) - Update the name of an ecobee3 remote sensor.

Parameters in italics are optional, in which case each unused parameter must be replaced with null.

The selection parameter is a string that identifies the thermostat(s) against which the action is performed, identical in format to <thermostat> used in the Ecobee binding (1.x).
