Fix ecobee binary sensor and sensor unique ids #27208

merged 2 commits into from Oct 4, 2019

commented Oct 4, 2019


As it turns out the ecobee API documentation has a different interpretation of the word "unique" than I do. What they mean to say is "unique to a particular thermostat". When a user has multiple thermostats (as @arsaboo does) the value I used for unique_id for the sensors built into the thermostat is no longer unique. I've added the thermostat serial number in this situation which will make the value truly unique across thermostats. @arsaboo is testing.
