I don’t know if this is the right place for this, but i didn’t see any where else. I bought a Smartthings hub and a connected thermostat (Trane). I can change the temp and fan and see the current temp, but that is about it. My questions are:
- Can I create rules to trigger an action? Do I need to write scripts for this? For example, turn the thermostat to 80 at 6pm.
- Can I get a notification? How? For example, text me if the temp hits 60 degrees.
- The thermostat is programmable, but I was hoping I could program that through an app or website. It seems archaic to have to program my smart connected thermostat using a few buttons on the thermostat itself. Is that possible? Preferably not using the programmable feature of the thermostat (like make 70 at 6am, make 65 at 9am, make 60 degrees when away mode set, etc).
I am a developer and can program, but was hoping I didn’t need to for simple things like this. I didn’t see any existing app that really did this stuff.
