I’ve looked around a little to see if anyone else has done something like this, in the way I’m thinking. I’m thinking about making a meat curing chamber with an old min fridge. The idea is that it needs to be warmer than a fridge usually would be (50-70 degrees) and much more humid than the average room in my home (~50%) as well as having a little airflow.
I’ve got a couple of WiFi double smart plugs coming, which seems perfect for the job - one side of the outlet for the fridge and another for a small humidifier that I’d put into the fridge. I could monitor is all using a Wireless Sensor tag - I’m familiar with them, since I’m using one in my son’s room. A little drilling and add a small fan inside the fridge to keep air circulating and I think I’ve got what I’m looking for.
I think I could do this all with IFTTT, but I’m curious if anyone has a SmartApp that could handle this all in one place. Specifically, I’m looking for monitor humidity and turn on humidifier when RH% gets too low, and monitor temperature and turn on when it gets too high. IFTTT has the functionality, but it’d be nice to have it organized better if for no reason other than the ability to quickly turn the thing off when I’m not curing meat, which is often. Anybody know of anything that can handle that?
