I have for a while now been missing a component to control humidity as you can with sensors and switches for temperature. The
generic thermostat component is fantastic in the way that it allows you to create a relatively intelligent climate control unit with no more than any kind of switch and any kind of sensor as long as the sensor reports temperature. I feel like this could be almost copy-pasted into a new component named
My use case is in a bathroom, where I have a multisensor reporting humidity and a switch that controls the fan. But as I am sure there are plenty of people out there without a fancy HAVC system that would like easy-to-access climate control, as with the
generic_thermostat, I really think this makes sense!
