I’m looking for a solution for this:
I have a basement we’ve just finished. I have a smart thermostat down there. Room is 90% unoccupied, except when it is occupied. So we leave the heat off unless someone is down there We’re running at 9 out of 10 times the kids forgetting to turn the heat off when they are done down there.
This is pretty simple to solve. (Motion Sensor, move the heat down when no activity for a while)
The problem I have is my kids plan on having sleep overs down there. That pretty much guarantees that in the middle of the night the heat is going to shut off.
I’m trying to avoid solutions where I have to specifically do something to override this (otherwise, why bother trying to automate it).
Does anyone have thoughts on how to approach this?
The best plan I have is some kind of notification if the heat is still on at 10pm. But I’m not even sure how to do that.
