We’re soon to put the heating system into our home. We’d like it to discreetly keep a consistent temperature, across multiple zones.
We have some zigbee relays that we can use for turning on/off actuators/heating. And into each zone we’d put a basic zigbee temperature sensor. No wall mounted programmable thermostats.
In the past I’ve used deconz rules/schedules to turn on/off an electric heater as required and it worked really well. But the desired temperature was “hardcoded” into a couple of the rules, as the value in a condition. So if I try to roll this out to multiple zones, and want to keep a consistent temperature across them, a lot of rules would need updating if we ever wanted to adjust the desired temperature.
What I’d like to do is use a virtual CLIPTemperature sensor for the desired temperature. But I’m not sure it’s possible to reference a sensor value, as a rules condition value?
Would really like to keep this all in deconz, as it’s been flexible enough and really efficient for everything we’ve thrown at it so far!
