Thermostat heat pump settings and indication

Will there ever be settings for the thermostat and heat pump usage. For example heat pumps produce heat up to certain outside temps and different models have different temps. So control over heat pump usage and an indication as to what’s running would be great otherwise I’ll be forced to switch theremostats. From what I understand it’ll run the heat pump for up to 30 mins and if setpoint isnt reached it will run aux heat. Huge waste of energy. More control would be great.
