Looking for inexpensive (ok cheap) way to control awning.
Just added Smartthings contact sensor. Via Web COre, now get message if extended after 8:00PM. Am now monitoring acceleration to see if useful for reporting excessive wind.
So my real goal is to automate closing if wind or rain. Any ideas? Do have Sunsetter wind sensor that is not working. One wacky idea is to link with dry zwave contact. Acceleration sensor could activate dry contact-wind sensor and close awning. Could likewise use moisture sensor to close if raining.
