Case study using Domoticz

Post by lazyoldjack » Thursday 27 April 2017 14:29

Don't know if anyone is interested in this kind of stuff, but I have just used Domoticz as the centre of a system to control the central heating in a number of rooms in our community building.

It runs on a Raspberry Pi and uses a Python program to read the booking schedule from a website and heats each room separately just in time for each booking to start and turns it off when the booking finishes. It controls the equipment in the rooms via Domoticz which allows Domoticz to be a powerful debug and manual control in addition to facilitating simple a simple control protocol for Python to access.

If you are interested in it, there is a case study based on it on Vesternet's site: http://www.vesternet.com/case-studies/cs-12

@StanHD

Thanks, my pleasure. :)

I picked up a lot from other people's posts and wanted to give a little something back, both to Vesternet who were very helpful and to the Domoticz community, because Domoticz was key to my success.

Nice project indeed!

How did you define the heat-up rate, and how did you implement that in scripting?
