I have a Samsung split unit airco. 2 inside units, 1 outside unit.
I’m trying to automate the behaviour of the 2 inside units based on the room temperature. (and humidity).
However three challenges:
how do you use a temp sensor of a airco unit that is sleeping?
temp sensor is mounted at the air intake of the inside unit, hence not correctly measuring room temp
humidity can’t be used as automation parameter.
I could solve all of those if I had one sensor (temp and humidity) in each room that could be read by SmartThings and used in the automation part of the app.
My question: Is this rocket science? What do I need to achieve this (within a reasonable budget)?
