I’m new to Homey or better yet I’ve yet to purchase Homey! One of the issues I hope to tackle (besides connecting everything to everything) is that of my city heating. I have NEST to control the floor heating on the ground floor but the rest of my thermostats are just regulated by heat of the heater. I want to the heater in the bedroom smart to make it nice and cozy before bedtime.
My problem, as far as I understood the helpdesk of Tado and netatmo, is that most (if not ‘all’) valves require a hub that’s connect to a central heating system (which I don’t have) and the valves only open/work when they are controlled by or get an ‘ok-go’ from the hub that the central heating is indeed on.
So I’m wondering can I tackle this with Homey? Can I just tell Homey to open the valve for a set amount of time (or until the room is hot enough maybe with a simple temperature measuring device) preferably without any hub?
Or can you advice me a product to tackle the above? Most companies assume you have central heating but that’s like living in the dark ages right ;p
P.s. I’ve done my homework on the thermostat part, Homey is the big mistery for me but 100% sure I want a little buddy like this in my house for Christmas!
