First of all its my first post so please don’t mind.
I’ve been using Openhab for more than a couple of years for homemade iot solutions, just as a hobby.
I created a humidifier using Openhab, mqtt(still use 1x binding), esp8266, dht11 sensor. My dht11 outputs the humidity to Openhab and the same I am passing to Google Assistant Thermostat.
I am looking for a solution where I can set the desired humidity using a dimmer for thermostat similar to ga=“thermostatTemperatureSetpoint”(not configured yet, as I am not using temperature) so I could pass the value back to my esp8266 to control the Humidifier(it’s built with a cool mist maker, totally homemade).
I am currently using the Dimmer ga=“Light” to control the humidity, which suffices my need to switch on/off set percentage, but Google Assistant categories it as a Dimmable Light and with percentage BRIGHTNESS(it would be great to have a non light dimmer with percentage “custom tag”(or may be Humidity tag).
I also found ga=“AirPurifier” as a viable solution which makes the Google Assistant icon quite quaint, but that only supports speeds, which I have also setup against a different dimmer item, but Google Assistant categories it as a regular switch with voice enabled only speed modes(I would still prefer something similar to ga=“Light”).
It would be great to have on Openhab:
- A non ga=“light” dimmer
- A thermostat humidity setpoint
Please don’t mind my lack of knowledge if that be, I am just a learner and a hobbyist.
