My thermostat will not follow schedule rules for some reason? Please help?!
Can you provide a few additional items:
- What your Rules (schedule) are
- Do you have remote sensors? If you do…
- How many do you have in the included in Comfort control section
- Do you have Motion Sensing Comfort on - in the remote sensor area
- What are your Temperature Preferences
- Do you have Auto Switch turned on
- What is the Behavior Set to
- Under Advanced, what is the Differential Temp setting
With your reply and the information @spamoni4 requested, please add more descriptive details as to how it isn’t following the schedule rules. Is it not changing modes (Home, Away, Sleep)? Is it not changing to the temps set in the schedule? Is it not achieving the temps set in the schedule? Is the failure to follow the schedule happening at a specific point during the schedule, at a transition, or randomly?
Please see attached for a screen shot of my weekday schedule. There are no additional rules.
There are no remote sensors.
My temperate preferences are aligned with my schedule.
Auto switch is turned on.
Behavior is set to balanced.
Differential temp is one degree.
Is it not changing modes (Home, Away, Sleep)?
Is it not changing to the temps set in the schedule?
Is it not achieving the temps set in the schedule?
Is the failure to follow the schedule happening at a specific point during the schedule, at a transition, or randomly?
I notice it will not be marked away while I’m at home. It also wake up in the night and sleep mode is not enabled.
Turn off Auto Switch. Auto Switch is used so the T-Stat can automatically set modes based on presence. Since you have a schedule you want to follow, I would turn it off.
Also, based on the image, it looks like you are missing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If you don’t have a schedule set for those days, I am not sure what the T-Stat would do.
I do have Friday Saturday and Sunday.
I agree with @spamoni4.
With Auto Switch enabled, the motion sensor in the unit will switch to Home from Away if it detects motion.
Next, in the Settings Menu, make sure you have the location set correctly for the time zone you are in.
Also, in the screen just before the one you posted, Schedules, make sure there aren’t other schedules listed there that may conflict. If you do have one that is only set for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, that is fine as it will not conflict but will cover the three days you do not have covered by this schedule.
If there are no other schedules and this is the only one, the thermostat should stay in Sleep mode from 9pm on Thursday until 6am on Monday.
Note that Schedules are prioritized over Temp Preferences. Changing temps in the schedule will not change the temp preferences and vice versa. Temp Preferences are only used when manually switching the thermostat mode when a schedule time block is not present. Temps set in the schedule time blocks will always override Temp Preferences.
Do you have any Wyze cams? There is a way to use the cams to monitor your mode switching schedule while you are testing to see if the schedule is working and changing modes at the appropriate times.
Set three rules. The triggers will be one of the three thermostat mode switch triggers:
The action will be to upload a short video to the cloud on a Wyze Cam. If you have Cam Plus on the cam, you will get a notification of the upload. You can then check the Rules History to see the exact time that the Thermostat switched modes.
Alternatively, if you have other Wyze devices, like a Wyze Plug that can be turned on, you can also see the times the Thermostat switched modes in the rules history.
This will give you a visual history of when modes are switching.
As a separate schedule then, I presume. Turn off the setting I recommended and see if that makes a difference
