@yvesracine As I mentioned in another thread, I’ve got a few questions on if this app will work with my use case. I assume yes, but would like to be sure before making the investment.
My primary source of heating/cooling will come from a Daikin split system and uses this DTH . My secondary source of heating is electric baseboard which will be controlled through 15 Sinope Zigbee thermostats.
Here are my questions:
1: Does the app support primary and secondary heating sources? I’d like it to function similar to a ducted heat pump with electric backup. Once the exterior temperature hits a point that’s below it’s efficiency rating turn on the electric. Ideally I’d like to have only the split providing heat to the main area unless it’s below temperature X which will then turn on the baseboards. I assume this might be possible using the moreHeatThreshold?
2: We have cathedral ceilings and would like to control the ceiling fan while heating to push the hot air at the ceiling down. Something like when heating, set ceiling fan to clockwise and low. When cooling set ceiling fan to counter clockwise and medium. You mention ability to control “a Big Fan”, would this do what I’m looking for? I could always do that in webcore, I just figure ceiling fans can be a big part in heating/cooling homes so it may already be built in.
3: Can motion sensors be excluded while in away mode? I don’t want the dog turning up the heating/cooling while he’s roaming around the house during the day while we’re at work.
4: Someone way back asked about seasonal temperature thresholds. Was something like this ever implemented? Summer and winter it’s really just heat/cool, but spring and fall we get into lots of temperature swings. This morning it was 4C and this afternoon it’s 22C. When I got up this morning, my split was pushing out heat and the house was up to 24 degrees and this afternoon it’s pushing out AC and the house is sitting at 17. All while on “auto” set at 20C. What I’ve found myself doing is cracking a window which forces it to turn off and then the house stays at a comfortable temperature on it’s own. Having seasonal options would be helpful. Either by having separate thresholds, or an option that would allow us to turn the system off if temperature is set to 20 degrees and the exterior temperature is within X number of degrees of the set temp.
