Incorporating the Ecobee sensor correctly

Cupertino, April 19, 2020

We use an ecobee for our upstairs unit. It is mounted on our hall. We put an ecobee sensor in our bedroom, because the time varies very well between the two locations. Here's what I don't realize:

Can't make HomeKit use timer controls based on my bedroom sensor? It will only use the hall thermostat and seems to use the sensor only as a timer view.

Ecobee programming is a nightmare and I really don't want to have to control things outside of HomeKit.

Any advice? Thanks.
