When selecting ANY action (on, off, temperature adjustment, heat, cool, auto, ANYTHING) the very first request does not hold, and the system is kicked back to its previous state.
For example. If the system is off, and I turn the heat on, it will revert back to off…which is causing my compressor to briefly kick on.
If the heat is on 73, and I increase it to 74, it will display 74 with the orange screen for about two seconds, and then immediately kick back to 73 and shut the system off - again causing my compressor to short cycle. Same for turning the system off or on. Or cooling temperature adjustments. If I make any change in the app, that change is displayed for literally one second, and then it kicks back to whatever the previous state was. This is short cycling my system!!!
This is a massive bug and needs to be addressed IMMEDIATELY. I have had these tstats for over a year, and this has never happened. Sometimes in the past if you didn’t stay on the screen long enough after making a change, it wouldn’t accept it (mainly with temp adjustments) but this is an entirely different issue.
Every single action is like this, it does not matter what I am asking the thermostat to do - it will accept the change for about a second or two, and then kick back to its previous state.
The problem is that my HVAC system is accepting the first request, but then when the app kicks that request out, my system immediately shuts off (or on) as a result. I have to wait on the screen, and make the appropriate change again after a few seconds. This is causing my system to short cycle.
Thermostats went from the recent alpha firmware to 1.2.5
