Chronothermostat component

Hi,
is there a chronothermostat component for manage time and temperature for heating/cooling system ?

You might want to have a look at the thermostat component:

Also please do not create 2 post for the same subject:

ok.
but chrono function is not implemented ?

Why do you mean by chrono function?

timer function…so I can switching ON/OFF heating in specified hours of the day (ex. 7:00-9:00 ON, 12:00-15:00, 18:00-21:00 ON, other is OFF)

Set up some input date time components. Use an automation to enable your thermostat during those times.

E.g. (looks a bit squashed because I’m on my iPad)

- id: lounge_aircon_auto_am_on
  alias: 'Lounge Room Aircon Scheduled AM On'
  trigger: 
    platform: template
    value_template: "{{ states('sensor.time') == (states.input_datetime.lounge_ac_am_on_time.state[0:5]) }}"
  condition:
    condition: and
    conditions:
      - condition: state 
        entity_id: input_boolean.lounge_ac_am_automation # If automation is required and ...
        state: 'on'
      - condition: or
        conditions:
          - condition: state
            entity_id: input_boolean.lounge_ac_workday # If workday is not tested or is a workday
            state: 'off'
          - condition: state
            entity_id: binary_sensor.workday_sensor
            state: 'on'
  action:
  - service: input_select.select_option
    data_template:
      entity_id: input_select.lounge_ac_mode
      option: >
        {% if states.sensor.roomt.state < states.input_number.lounge_ac_heat_temp_set.state  %}
          Normal Heat
        {% elif states.sensor.roomt.state > states.input_number.lounge_ac_cool_temp_set.state  %}
          Normal Cool
        {% else %}
          'Off'
        {% endif %}

ok. thanks.
This is a good idea.
But there aren’t a specific component ? I think that this is a fundamental problem for heating system…
Nobody have proposed a add-on for chrono-termostat component ?
Where I Can to do this request ?

Are you thinking of something like

Yes, Heaty is designed for exactly this purpose and can power very flexible schedules.

Here’s the documentation:

I think you are thinking of hass in the wrong way. Hass has a number of tools which you have to fit together. Rather than a ready to play with toy, it is a box of lego parts.

It is really up to you to fit all the little parts together to make automations to do what you want.

Heaty is an example of fitting parts together to do something really useful. The beauty of the community is that in most cases other (cleverer than me) people have already invented the wheel.

ok.
there is a GUI to manage thermostat ?

HA hass a web interface for controlling individual entities as you know… Apart from that, Heaty has no GUI.

ok. Thanks.
Is there a possibility to save a thermostat parameter in a file ?
I would to modify the file and automatically modify parameters linked all thermostat…
With Heaty is it possible ?

The whole configuration of Heaty is YAML-based.

You still don’t seem to have read the documentation. As long as I have this feeling, I won’t go on trying to answer any of your imprecise questions. Sorry.

Best regards
Robert

I really like your approach, but as I’m a newbie, might you show the full .yaml documentation e.g. for the Lounge Room Aircon Automation card…?

Super, thank you.
One question more, which is the meaning of …[0:5] in square bracket as per your template?

Br
/Stefano

It selects only the first 5 characters (stripping off the seconds) to match the sensor.time format (it has no seconds).

Use the template editor to experiment with it:

Once more, thank you for your fast reply and clearness, is a good suggestion to use the Template tool too.
I will capitalize this hint.

Hi There. This looks amazing. Please could you supply more info on how to achieve this.
I am after a thermostat with timer function. This this will do it for me
