I have a rental home and recently bought 2 RTH6580WF to integrate into my Smartthings hub. I bought these thermostats to reduce the likelyhood of theft or damage as the look like boring honeywell thermostats.
These thermostats do not have temperate stop points. Meaning, I can’t prevent a renter from lowering the A/C below 70 degrees or raising the heat past 78 degrees.
I would like to do this through automation. I don’t see in the default automation how I would read a setpoint and heating/cooling mode and if it’s >78 degrees, force it back to 78 degrees. I can read the temperature and take action, but not the actual set point.
Any suggestions or guidance on how I could develop a custom smart app to handle this?
