So I just rewriting some of my automations to trigger off the outside temp instead of the season and was wondering if there is a better way to handle updating a single variable in multiple files (without creating a input_variable if possible)
Basically all my thermostat automations are a variation on this
id: Thermostat AC up at night alias: Thermostat AC up at night initial_state: 'on' trigger: - platform: time at: "23:00:00" condition: - condition: numeric_state entity_id: 'sensor.dark_sky_temperature_high_0d' above: 85 action: - service: climate.set_temperature data: entity_id: 2gig_technologies_ct101_thermostat_iris_cooling_1 temperature: 75
and I’d like to be able to just have the two temps be pulled from a central location instead of having to update 5-10 different files to adjust the trigger point / set points.
Side note I’m not even 100% sure this works since I just changed it from checking the season (summer/winter) and to using the high/low temp for the day but I’m not at my actual server to test it. so comments on that would be helpful.
Also I do not want to use Node Red so please don’t suggest it.
