After finding the Keep Me Cozy II smartapp does not work very well at operating a thermostat with a remote temperature sensor, I need another way to solve my problem.
Basically, when I turn on my fireplace, the temperature at the thermostat rises and shuts off the furnace and the bedrooms get cold. At the moment I have a “Fireplace On” and “Fireplace Off” routine setup that changes the thermostat settings and I manually switch them with my phone.
Is there a way to automate these routines so that they turn on or off with a temperature sensor placed near the fireplace?
Or is there a better way to solve this problem? Maybe some kind of relay on the fireplace that lets you know it’s on?
