Tech Talk / Re: Disabling Ring doorbell for shabbos

I can see what my electrician say about the kill switch, but for now, is it annoying to turn off the motion zones and turn them back on every Motzai Shabbos? From reading the other thread, it really seems like Nest is the better option since it has a simple off option.

Whatís the actual deal here? I know tons of people who have Rings and Nests (doorbells) but Dan is the only one Iíve heard of installing a Shabbos switch. Does everyone else just rely on whatever off switch it comes with?

If I'm going straight to OGG, I figured I can leave at 9AM (says 1:15hr according to Google Maps) and be fine. Is that not enough time?

Obviously, I would rather go back to hotel to pick everything up and check out, but I assume that will be another hour at least.
I think you can leave by 6:15-6:30. We stopped once or twice on the way down to take pictures for a minute. If you get back to the hotel by 8:30 (I think it's a 2 hour drive?) then you can check out and head to the airport. I don't exactly see the point of not checking out at 3am when you leave though.

I'm not sure I get what you are saying, but it sounds like you are saying that the wiring for your two existing systems is far enough apart that it would be expensive to re-route them. I don't believe that these thermostats work in a way where you can combine two different units into 1 virtual unit, but you could do the following:

- Buy two thermostats
- Label one "Heat" and one "AC"
- Set the "Heat" mode to always be heating
- Set the "AC" mode to always be cooling

Set the schedules as you would for your current system. I would imagine that the heating threshold and cooling threshold would be far enough apart that they wouldn't overlap.
In what way do you need them to work "together"?
If you wanna manage them from the same app, I know ecobee manages multiple thermostats from the same app, I'm sure others do this as well.
So what exactly are you trying to accomplish?
Correct, they are far apart from each other. Your suggestion seems like it would work. I'm finding out how much it would cost to just move the wires into the same location so I can have just 1 thermostat.

The issues I'm trying to solve are to make sure the ac and heat won't turn on at the same time (seems like Yonah's idea would solve this), 1 app to control both (good to know about ecobee), and save the $ from buying a second one.

You *could*, but as my wife would say - that's a patchke arbeit.  I believe that it is possible to combine your two thermostats into one with many of these, but you'd have to research with that company's support folks.

For example, I found this on Nest:

If you really wanted to, you could essentially install two separate thermostats and have different schedules for each - but why would you? Is there ever a situation where you're running both heat and AC at the same time?
My research since I posted has said that it's not very expensive to get the wires re-routed to the other location so that both systems run on the same thermostat. Is that why you're suggesting too?

sorry for the noobie question,

i just booked yesterday to kauai with delta is it possible to try this and then get delta redeposited?

P.S this trip is absolutely thanks to dan!! would not be able to do it without DD and DDF!!

Heating and cooling are on separate systems with 2 thermostats. Do any of these devices allow you to buy 2 and have them work together?

I don't think Inside the Volcano was worth $400. I used Arrival points, which is why the sting didn't hurt. Was certainly cool, but not $400 cool.
Snorkeling was an interesting experience, but didn't blow me away.
If you make it to Westman Islands, stop by the tiny aquarium where they have a puffin that you can interact with (see my TR).

Reached out to them for more details.

too little time and way too expensive. local flights r 425 RT now.
It's a 45 min flight - that shouldn't be a factor in too little time. You can get to your hotel by 9am. But yes, the flight is expensive. That's fair. Get some A+ :P

just wondering if there are private charters or any other way to get to moorea after 6 PM
is it worth schlepping to BOB from Friday-Monday?
IIRC there some sort of freight ferry that you can buy a ticket on which leaves at night. Google might help you.
I did 3.5 days and had the most amazing time.
