I have a gecko controlled spa with a heat pump and im considering going this route to automate tasks.
I have rudimentary programming skills (mechanical engineer turned organisation researcher), so I’m kindly asking your advice on the best route achieve the following:
-Automate normal to energy saving mode every night on specific time. I have solar panels, so the spa should only heat in the daytime.
-Turn on the heatpump when setTemp > meassuredTemp - a ST on/off switch can do this and the logic should be added to the scripts running the spa.
- Automation is the primary goal, but controlling temp and starting the heatpump from iphone would be nice
I assume I would have to buy a SmartThings hub, ST on/off switch and of course the in.touch module.
Any thoughts on this?
@Insaneoctane: would it be possible to adapt and use your Python code for this.
Thanks for any suggestions.
