I am trying to setup an openHAB in a rental place, and I am really trying to “optimise” the expenses…
I have two ducted Panasonic air conditioning systems (one for the ground floor and one for the upper floor). both of them have wired wall remotes which I would love to “automate and integrate with openHAB”.
My requirements are:
- regulate the internal temperature remotely (via openHAB) (different rules for ground and uper floor)
- set rules to activate/deactivate the aircon accordingly to external temperature (different rules for ground and upper floor)
- automate the on/off accordingly to my GPS position (on my mobile) (different rules for ground and upper floor)
anyone has any idea where should I start? which hardware do I need? maybe the best idea is to get two Nest system, but I would prefer “saving some $” on top of the personal satisfaction of DIY!
Thank you all
