    I would desire a more accurate reading, but this may be good enough.

    Does the Plugin have access to this info that Ecobee says that they have.

    the plugin doesn't expose the outdoor temperature, but in HS you can use a weather plugin (like WeatherXML) to get all the weather data you want.

    Sorry, I didn't explain that very well. I set up a virtual device to control House Modes (ex. Home/Away/Vacation/Asleep/Awake) that I use to set the general mode that the house is in. When this virtual device changes to "Vacation", if I forgot to define a Vacation event with a start and end date in the Ecobee app then I'd like to set the Echobee to "Current Program" Vacation.

    I notice that in the triggers dropdown for "Current Program" that it has (custom, set any value, Home, Away, Vacation, Hold, Sleep) but the Actions pull down menu for "Current Program" only has (Resume Program, Away, Home, Sleep).

    After reading your response above, it sounds like the only way to accomplish this is to create a new comfort setting called "Vacation"? Or is it possible to add it to the actions drop down menu?

    Thanks Spud!
    Yeah you can try adding a comfort setting called "Vacation", or maybe call it something else because the Ecobee vacation feature is a special feature that needs a start and end date.

    If so you need to disable/enable the plugin so that this confort setting is created as a control attached to the "Current Program" device

    By default there is a Vacation status pair attached to the "Current Program" device because from the Ecobee you can define Vacation event with a start and end date.

    I fixed this bug in version 3.0.0.18 available in first post of this thread.
    Thank you for reporting it.

    Noticed a possible issue in 3.0.0.17 re: minimum fan run time. When checking through the Ecobee web portal and on the screen of the Ecobee itself, I can change the minimum fan run time to 5min but if I set it back to zero, it stays at 5min.

    Is this something you can test on your side or is there more info I need to provide?

    not sure what's wrong, probably the zip got corrupted when you copied it to your HS3 server, or maybe it's a rights problem. In any case try to install from the updater version 3.0.0.10

    there is not a lot of difference between 3.0.0.13 and 3.0.0.10 anyway, and 3.0.0.13 will be in the updater soon
