Adjusting Thermostat per Temperature Range

I currently have an automation that adjusts my thermostat based on the outside temp, and it lowers the temp by 7 degrees once the conditions are met. I’ve found that it’s a bit too aggressive. I have found a much better setup that I want, but I’m just drawing blanks on how to proceed. I think I’m needing an IF statement or multiple automations, I would prefer an IF statement, so I only have to manage one automation. I don’t know how to make them, so that’s not helping me.

What I’m wanting to do for the conditions are that when the outside temp reaches a temp within range of 75-80 then set the thermostat to 75, if not in sleep or away modes. I also haven’t been able to figure how to setup the range as a condition. I am wanting the conditions to be:

Outside Temperature Range Thermostat Cool Setting
< 74 Resume Program
75 - 80 75
81 - 85 76
86 - 90 77
91 - 95 78
> 96 79

I’m using an Ecobee thermostat and I’m also using the outside weather from the Ecobee.

Can anybody assist with either making an IF statement or a single automation that can accommodate this? I will post what I’ve tried to create in a reply below.

Below is the automation that I had assistance with creating:

- id: '1'
  alias: It's Getting Warm Out There
  description: Sets the air appropriately when it's 82 or more outside.
  - platform: state
    entity_id: weather.home
  - condition: template
    value_template: "{{ trigger.to_state.attributes.temperature >= 82 and\n   state_attr('climate.home',\
      \ 'preset_mode') not in ['away', 'sleep'] }}\n"
  - service: climate.set_temperature
    entity_id: climate.home
      hvac_mode: heat_cool
      target_temp_high: '{{ trigger.to_state.attributes.temperature - 7 }}'
      target_temp_low: 69
  - service: climate.set_fan_mode
    entity_id: climate.home
      fan_mode: 'on'

Below is what I tried to create based off the previous example:

- id: '2'
  alias: It's Getting Warm Out There (test)
  description: Sets the air appropriately when it's 82 or more outside.
  - entity_id: weather.home
    platform: state
  - condition: template
    value_template: "{{ trigger.to_state.attributes.temperature [70,trigger.to_state.attributes.temperature,90]\
      \ and\n   state_attr('climate.home', 'preset_mode') not in ['away', 'sleep']\
      \ }}\n"
  - condition: or
    - above: '74'
      below: '81'
      condition: numeric_state
      entity_id: weather.home
      value_template: trigger.to_state.attributes.temperature
  - data_template:
      hvac_mode: heat_cool
      target_temp_high: 75
      target_temp_low: 69
    entity_id: climate.home
    service: climate.set_temperature
  - data:
      fan_mode: 'on'
    entity_id: climate.home
    service: climate.set_fan_mode
  mode: single

I added an OR condition in hopes that there was another way to make this work.

Hey man did you ever solve the issues with the automation. I too would like to setup my automation to run a similar sequence of based on forecast temperatures.

Unfortunately I have not. I don’t quite understand the programming language needed for the template. I know the logic will most likely be an IF Else statement, but I’m lost on what to do next.
