Wall switch timer with weather (no hub)
« on: January 14, 2024, 11:28:21 PM »
I am looking for a wall switch timer that can also be scheduled in connection with the weather. (the switch controls a split unit AC)
For example:
turn the device on sunday - thursday @ 8pm only if the real feel is below 55 degrees (winter)
turn the device on sunday - thursday @ 8pm only if the real feel is above 74 degrees (Summer)
turn the device on friday 1 hour before sunset only if the real feel is below 55 degrees (winter)

Definitely can be done through IFTTT
Feelings don't care about your facts

was thinking about that, but looking for something built in, with IFTTT too much can go wrong

Maybe daisy chain timers

Something like this for the time switch

And something like this for temperature switch

Time switch in the wall. Temperature switch in time switch

this might work in a sukkah, not a permanent solution :)
