I am trying to change a thermostat’s set points if a door sensor is closed and a switch is on. If the switch is off when the door is closed, the set points are unchanged. I am trying to reset the temperature in a room when it is occupied (switch On) and the door is left open but is set to its normal values when occupied and the door is closed. Can I do this without having to write a custom app?
This is pretty unique and will require a custom smartapp
The Smart App - Rule Machine that was created by Bruce Ravenel here
has just been updated to include Thermostat Set points. Its a logic state app that allows one to create rules , conditions, and actions to be performed.
Check it out. Its Fire!
Or Rule Machine! Rule Machine supports thermostat control, and can easily do this automation!
Sure does! Also custom
No stock ST app provides this.
But it should be stock ST App!
Understatement of the week!!
Rule Machine looks awesome! I checking it out and will report my results. Thanks for the info.
I set up my condition in Rule Machine, and it did everything that I wanted. Thanks for the help.
I am attempting to adjust my thermostat based on whether my fireplace is running, using your excellent Rule Machine. The trigger is a temperature sensor. The action I am trying to achieve is setting the HVAC fan to “On” instead of “Auto”, but it doesn’t seem to get the command.
I know the trigger is working because I have it sending me a push notification as well each time it is triggered. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
I am using a CT100 Thermostat and have tried both the original device type and the “my custom CT 100” device type from “Lgkahn”.
Not a clue. I know that I can flip my thermostat from FanAuto to FanOn and back to FanAuto from Rule Machine, but it’s not a CT100.
Ok. Thanks for the response. I will try to find another solution.
