At the last count my smart home system had eighteen rules, so I thought that some description might be appreciated. Those 18 rules run a combination of (i) a multi-zone heating system, (ii) warnings related to windows left open, and (iii) some interaction between the two where local radiators are disabled if a window is left open.
|Area||“On” Rules||“Off” Rules||Alarm Rules||Notes|
|Outside light||“After Sunset”||“Daytime”||None||Dusk-to-dawn timer|
|Inside warning light (plus Outside light sometimes)||“After Sunset All Windows Closed”||“All Windows Closed Early Hours“, “All Windows Closed Late Night” and “Daytime All Windows Closed”||“Bathroom Window Opens”, “Cloakroom Window Opens” and “En-suite Window Opens”.||Dusk-to-dawn with alarm override|
|Boiler||“Any Master Rad Valve Opens” and “Any Slave Valve Rad Opens”||“All Master Rad Valves Closed”, “Bedtime No Lounge Motion” and “Half Hourly Overnight No Lounge Motion”.||None||Enable heating boiler based on radiator valve demand.|
|Cloakroom Radiator||“Cloakroom Window Closes”||“Cloakroom Window Opens”||None||Enable/Disable local radiator valve based on window status.|
|Heating||“Any Rads Below 10C”||None||None||Enable heating system regardless of summer/vacation status.|
|Heating||“Any Rads Below 5C”||None||None||Enable boiler at low temperature regardless of summer or vacation setting.|
