How to check Ecobee attribute equipmentStatus

Is there a way to make a rule trigger based off of the Ecobee attribute equipmentStatus (seen listed in the Ecobee API for the Thermostat object)? I want to make a rule for when the fan is running.


Is the equipmentStatus exposed as an attribute on your device within your smart home hub? If so, you should be able to use it in a SharpTools rule.

You can view the available attributes for your device by:

  1. Open your SharpTools User Page
  2. Tap the ... next to your desired location
  3. Scroll down and tap on your device

Keep in mind that if the attribute hasn’t been used on a dashboard or within a rule trigger, the event won’t be subscribed, so the value will likely be outdated, but it should at least give you an idea of the type of attributes available for your device.
