Body temperature monitor?


(Russ) #1

Anyone know if there’s a body temp zwave device? I want to auto control my bedrooms ceiling fan speed based on my body temp.

I think you would have to create your own device like that, I doubt there’s one that’s commercially available.

That’s also unlikely to be a useful device for most people. Unless one has a medical condition that prevents his or her body temperature from regulating itself appropriately, the ambient temperature in a room should not have a meaningful effect on body core temperature. Unless the room temperature is very hot/very cold or the person is extremely physically active, has no access to water, etc. But that’s not the kind of environmental conditions you’ve described so far.

For most of us, if it’s too warm in the room, you’ll sweat a little (or a lot), your body temperature won’t actually go up.
