Gas Fireplace control. Look Ma, no wires!

I finally did it, thanks to this Zwave battery operated switch. Here’s a video of it working with the guts exposed. And of course let’s make sure the thing turns off automatically. My nest is just a few feet away, so I’ll probably add an automation to detect a high temperature spike to set off some alarms or notifications just in case the switch fails to turn off. Screw code. No more getting up to look for the remote.

- alias: Fireplace OFF
  hide_entity: false
  trigger:
    - platform: state
      entity_id: switch.ecolink_unknown_type0006_id0002_switch
      to: 'on'
      for:
        minutes: 10
  action:
    - service: switch.turn_off
      entity_id: switch.ecolink_unknown_type0006_id0002_switch

A thing of beauty… Care to update us with a demo of the final product?
