I have a dozen temperature sensors throughout the house. And a Nest Thermostat.
Trying to mimic the Nest sensors feature where the temp is controlled by a specific room sensor between predefined times (and now with HE, some virtual switches). Use x sensor from 9-11, y sensor from 11-4, etc.
How would I set this up and implement it? Rule machine for the logic of the different times. As a test, I’ve created a switch for 3 sensors and use bpt world’s One At a Time to ensure only one switch is on at a time. But this doesn’t seem like the best or simplest approach when using a bunch more sensors.
Even if I make a switch per sensor, I’d need to somehow feed the chosen sensor’s current temperature into the Thermostat Controller. When the sensor is changed, the new sensor’s temperature gets fed to Thermostat Controller. Right? How?
Finally, for out of schedule comfort sensing (apart from the rule), how could I create something on the dashboard with a drop down menu, or a set of radio boxes to chose which sensor should be used until the next scheduled sensor change?
I don’t need the tiny details, yet. Pointers in the right direction and a practical foundational approach would be most helpful to get started.
