Control ac through zxt-120 after door open for 10 minutes?

(Steve D) #1

Hi folks only came online yesterday I have setup my hub and have a door sensor and zxt-120 working my daikin AC split system on a device handler, I am trying to make s smartapp that will
check if the door sendor is open for 10 minutes and then turn off my AC through the zxt-120
I am quite new to this only 15 hours on this but I do underatnd things quite quickly so any help would be great thank you


Welcome! :sunglasses: Your best bet will probably be to use webcore. This is essentially a scripting language for SmartThings and can handle all kinds of stacked conditionals, including time duration.

Setting it up is a little complicated, but there are lots of docs and people who will be glad to help if you have any questions. And once you get into it you’ll find you can do almost anything with it. :sunglasses:

I have this working now on one door sensor, I can easily add multiple thermostats and turn them off, BUT how can I change the code so that if any door sensor is open for x minutes it shuts off the ac, any help would be appreciated.

the code I am using that works fine on 1 sensor and 1 thermostat.
