How to keep the system from running when windows or doors are open?

Has anyone thought about changing the remote sensors to include a pressure sensor or a door/window sensor? My daughter loves to open the windows as the AC is running. Multiple times the door to the house was open for 5 hours before I got home and we are just wasting money. I would love it if the ecobee could have a window or pressure sensor that would automatically disable and notify you when an open window is preventing the system from properly heating and cooling the house.

Pressure sensor should be the easiest way to determine since when the AC kicks on the pressure should immediately increase however an open window would have different results. Plus over time the system could keep track of "normal" pressure in the room and tell when the pressure is significantly different
