Just installed the ecobee3 and have been enjoying it so far. Found out that the Smart Home/Away "Away" function only works if there is no motion for 2+ hours and that can't be changed, so will probably use the "Away for Now" hold on the quick changes screen when we leave the house before the scheduled away time. My schedule is set up like this:
Let's say I leave at 7am, and I use the app to select "Away for now" which institutes the "Away for now" hold. My question is what happens if someone comes home at 2:30PM- the motion sensors would sense motion I'm assuming, but would they turn off the "Away for now" hold and kick in the Smart Home/Away "Home" function automatically?
If ecobee would let us change the default 2+ hours without motion before the "Away" function automatically kicks in to something shorter that would avoid this problem all together as I wouldn't even worry about selecting "Away for now".
