Central Heating Controls



  • Has anyone developed a Central Heating control / Water heating control time clock that links via mysensors to HA envioronment? No point in re-inventing the wheel if its already mysensor invented?

    If not would anybody be interested in one ?

    That's a quite general project. Heating systems may differ quite a lot from one another, so sw solution should be made accordingly

    alt text iS typical UK time clock for central heating, has anyone built one like this for control ....

    It depends if it is a normal relay on/off command or a bus communication. If it is the first case you could replace it with a node and a relay (could be arduino mini pro or esp8266 + relay) and a temperature sensor and set up the controller with time schedule and temperatures you want during the day. My personal suggestion if you have just an on/off command is to get something like a Netatmo thermostat (I have one and I am so happy with it) because they use a learning algorithm that adapts automatically according to your house heating system that keeps temperature constant taking advantage of the heating inertia (implementing it in a controller is really an hassle). For water heating it is simpler as you may just need a relay and schedule on/off on the controller
