How to trigger scene on heating setpoint going below
« on: February 17, 2018, 04:02:38 pm »
Hi All,

Does anyone have an easy way to trigger a scene when the heating setpoint of a thermostat goes BELOW a value?

The Vera UI provides "heating setpoint goes above" and "cooling setpoint goes below", but not the two opposite variations.  My thermostat (Secure's 7-day one) seems only to implement the heating setpoint; I tried a scene triggered on the cooling setpoint but it never runs.  Seems a strange omission from the available options in the UI!  -- VERA TEAM PLEASE NOTE! --

What I need, is to turn off an auxiliary heater on a MVHR system when the main central heating setpoint is reduced - e.g. overnight & while no-one's home.  The sister scene re-enables it when the heating setpoint is raised to normal levels; that one works fine.

Am I going to have to resort to PLEG here?
