Turn thermostat off if door open for more than X minutes


(Sean Prange) #1

With the warm weather we’ve been having this spring it’s not uncommon for me to come home to a garden door (or two) open and the heat pump still going. I suspect I may have to create a smartapp for this scenario, but it would be nice if an existing app (ie RM) could be used. I’d like for example the heating mode to be disabled or perhaps just cranked down a few degrees if a door is left open for more than say 5 minutes. Any thoughts?

Thanks! It seems to do a lot more than what I was looking for but that isn’t a bad thing.
