[RELEASE] HVAC/Thermostat Automatic Fan Scheduling/Recirculate (On/Off/Circulate)


(www.rboyapps.com - Make your home your butler!) #1

Some folks have been asking for a way to Automatically turn on / off / circulate the Thermostat/HVAC fan.
This is required for some systems which require constant circulation or just to keep the air around the home flowing on a periodic basis.

This app does exactly that, it’s provides the following:

  • Select multiple thermostats
  • Setup the fan mode (on or circulate)
  • Set the on/circulate duration and off duration of the fan (it will cycle between the modes, i.e. On for ‘X’ minutes and off for ‘Y’ minutes and repeat cycle)
  • Set an operating schedule (time of days, start/end and days of week, single days, multiple selection or all week)

This app is available on the RBoy apps server (along with all the rest of the premium and free apps) http://smartthings.rboyapps.com. Refer to our facebook page below to get access to the server.

Nice. A little old and works a little differently from this app but very cool never the less.
