Water timer


(Barra O'Donovan) #1

Hi , i want to control my immersion through ST via a fibaro relay , however I’m really struggling to find any kind of smartapp that will give me options to power relay for say 1 hr , 2 hrs or a timer option in order to heat my water tank .

I know I could create virtual switches but I’d much prefer to have all options on one page if possible .

Any help , input would be much appriciated .

Have you looked into webCoRE?

as in a sous vide?

LOL

What? I’m not sure what kind of immersion he is talking about.

It’ll be a regular immersion heater for a hot water cylinder.

@bodonovan9

Have you checked the Fibaro relay rating V the heater spec… it’s probably a lot of juice to run through that little module.


(Barra O'Donovan) #7

No I use the module to energise a contactor that has all the power going through it ,


(Barra O'Donovan) #8

What would the difference between doing it on core or webcore , i know webcore is more powerful but I’ve yet to properly look at it

For your needs not much… if you’ve already got CoRE and are happy using it then no need to over complicate things.

Do you see what I’m trying to do though , I’d like all the immersion options like 1 hr boost , 2 hr boost and maybe a countdown timer to turn on for 1 hr … I know it’s a lot but would you have any ideas

It will be fairly straightforward but however you do it you’ll need virtual switches or routines.

If routine 1hr runs
then
with heater
turn on
wait 1 hour
turn off

If routine 2hr runs
then
with heater
turn on
wait 2 hour
turn off

Yea that’s pretty much the way I’ve gone about it , i can still use my nest to schedule hot water too so I’ll have to live with it for the minute , thanks .


(Barra O'Donovan) #13

Tell me this robin, is it still not possible to integrate your nest into ST if your in the uk ?

Yes… I use NST Manager.
