Ok, up here in Ontario, we have Time of Use power rates, and they change bi-seasonally. “Cheap” time is always 7:00pm to 7:00am, and weekends/holidays. Medium and expensive times are between those. (pricing difference is substantial: 8.9c low vs 18.9c high)
Now, I currently have anything that shouldn’t run during expensive times (dehumidifier, various random things around the home) to only run between 7pm and 7am … however, it’d be nice to say “this item only runs cheap times” and “this item can run cheap and medium cheap times”. Anyone have an idea how I can do this? I was thinking of using modes, but it gets very complex very fast, so not workable (really wish you could have two different modes at once … boo).
Really, it’d be as “simple” as, instead of “sun rise” or “sunset”, it’d be “low”, “medium”, and “high”, and twice a year, I’d have to adjust the times.
