Ecobee3 doesn't see fan running when started by Honeywell W8150

We just built a new house and I decided to install an ecobee3 using the same setup that the builder's 7-day thermostat was using. The one exception is I connected up a C wire. It's connected to a single stage Bryant gas furnace.

It largely works fine but the ecobee3 doesn't seem to notice when a Honeywell W8150 controller (self-described as a "Fresh Air Ventilation Control") starts the fan. Ideally, I would use the ecobee3 to control when the outside damper opens and closes so that I can take advantage of "free cooling". For now, however, it would suffice to have the ecobee see the fan running. Any ideas on the wiring for that?
