I have an ecobee 3 in a 2 story home where the upper story is consistently 4-6 degrees warmer than the main floor. My remote sensor is in the upstairs bedroom.
During the main course of the day ('Home' comfort setting), I want the cool point to be at 72 degrees (both sensors on).
When I go to bed ('Sleep' comfort setting) i want the cool point to be 69 degrees, considering only the upstairs sensor.
I have this set up as written above. The problem is cooling it down by the time I get to sleep. At 9:45pm the upstairs might be 75 degrees (taken as half of the 72 degree average), and at 10pm the system switches to 'Sleep' and it needs to bring the upstairs down a full 6 degrees. I have Smart Recovery enabled for both heating and cooling, but the system does not seem to begin cooling to any significant degree until 10pm. I've been manually setting the cool point down to 68 or 69 starting at 9pm as a way of getting the cooling started early enough so that it is comfortable when I am ready to go to bed.
Is there a better way to make this work, or should I just add an additional comfort setting as an intermediate point between 'Home' and 'Sleep'?
I've only had the system active for 3 or 4 days, so it may not have had time to fully optimize, if that makes a difference.
