I’m in the process of building a climate control routine.
One hurdle that I’m facing is to get feedback from my AC that I plan to turn on through a z-wave IR blaster.
Since an IR blaster can only send an on/off signal - the same one at that -, it’s hard to tell whether my AC is on or off.
To get around this problem, I’m thinking of using a vibration sensor (or a multipurpose sensor) to detect whether the AC is on or not.
Does anyone see an immediate problem with this approach?
