Another Update to the Arduino Thermostat
So after a couple months we’ve found really no use for the ad-hoc mode as implemented. We both didn’t really like going into the schedule screen to edit the temperature and it didn’t drop to “Auto” when completed, so the next day the thermostat would continue on the “Ad-Hoc” mode until we changed it back.
Turns out we really wanted these two features. 1) Quick adjustment of the current zone/time’s temperature, leaving the scheduled time intact, and 2) The ability to pause the thermostat for a couple hours while we’re out.
I’ve posted the new code, although it’s pretty similar to the last version just hacked around a bit to add the functionality. I also did a small video demo of the new feature and the harmony remote setup I forgot about earlier.
