2441TH Thermostat Question - detecting when changed


pkopp

Recommended Posts

Newbie here... with a thermostat question...

 

I noticed that there's an event added in the log when someone manually changes the temp on the thermostat. Is there an easy wasy way to trigger on this event?

 

I'd like to be able to trigger a program if someone manually changes the setting... doing someting like:

 

IF temp setting changed

- allow new setting for 1 hour

- revert to old setting.

 

I'm using a program for the daily settings, so I know what it's supposed to be set to at any given time... I'd like to avoid the need to write programs detecting every temperture that's not the old temp. (i.e. if now 77 then wait and revert too old temp.... if now 76, wait and revert to old, etc.)

 

I suppose, as a work around, I could:

IF between time/time on day1, 2, etc.

- Set temp

- Repeat:

- Wait 1 hour

- Set temp

 

But that's not the same.

 

Please point me in the right direction... tkx!

I don't know if this will give you any ideas... but I've been playing around with my Harmony remote controlling my thermostat.

 

It does involve writing a couple of small programs for each Deg., and a couple of variables, but it gives me the ability to always know what the set point is, when it is changed, and I can have the ISY execute programs based on any changes, or what have you.

 

Take a look and see if it gives you any ideas.

Hi Matt... thx! nice work around but I was hoping for a solution that didn't involve writing a program for detecting every possible degree. I may do something just like you did... because it looks like the only way around this. I'm a little surprised they didn't get this right...
