I have a motorized damper in a duct that is normally closed when it has no power. It is plugged into a zwave smart plug connected to Smartthings called “Damper Plug”. I want the damper to open when the ecobee temperature sensor in that room is above 80F and when my AC is actually blowing cool air through my main duct line (positive pressure). I also want the damper to open when the ecobee temperature sensor in that room is below 50F and when my heat is actually blowing warm air through my main duct line (positive pressure). I do not want the damper to be open when no air is blowing through my duct.
When I try something like this it doesn’t work…
If -Room1 Temp Humidity Sensor is equal to or above 80F
and -EcobeeTherm Downstairs Mode is Cool
Then -Damper plug on
and - Send me a notification
This doesn’t work. It’s almost as if the Ecobee thermostat doesn’t trigger when the AC is blowing cool air.
What and I doing wrong? Could someone help with the automation to get the damper to open and close when I need it too?
Thanks for your help!
