I see the new built in thermostat control app and all the new integrations with the latest version or RM. I'm curious...because maybe I'm oversimplifying what I'm doing. I only have a couple very simple RM rules that handle that job for me.
So for those of you with:
- Central Heating/AC
- NO vent controllers
- NO individual room controls
What do your automations look like? Mine are very simple based on Mode (which is based on presence and time). For me 4 modes that are relevant here.
- Away (set Heating Temp and Cooling Temp)
- Day (set Heating Temp and Cooling Temp)
- Evening (set Heating Temp and Cooling Temp) (same as day for me)
- Night (set Heating Temp and Cooling Temp)
For me adjusting those temps based on mode is pretty simple. I do have an automation that turns up the heat in the house if it's below a certain temp when my wife leaves work (she's a teacher and she leaves at different times). Same with the kids and school. I use my old webcore presence sensors for this and flip switches in HE because...well that's the only way I can see to do it. IFTTT and Life360 don't allow per person geofence updates. Anyways...that's kind of a "nice" house is warm when she gets home thing.
But I'm reading about the ECO modes/etc. What else is everyone doing?
Again, maybe it's me because once you add in vent controls or individual room controls I can see all kinds of stuff in there based on room presence.
