UPDATE: Schedy is of course stable and ready for use since December 2018, here are the docs.
For those not knowing what Heaty is: It’s a heating scheduler with quite a lot of powerful features developed by me. Here’s the link to a long thread about it that has grown over the last 10 months: Heaty - a flexible heating control, facilitating schedules and manual intervention
I’m just wanting to announce:
R.I.P. - Heaty is going to die.
No, seriously, I’ve decided not to develop Heaty any further. There will be a final 0.17 release soon, and that’s it.
Don’t be sad… Schedy is born!
There really is no reason for sorrow. A new app is going to see the world’S light soon: Schedy!
I know, what a funny name… but it describes what it does quite well while retaining memories of Heaty.
Schedy is going to be a multi-purpose scheduler for Home Assistant that will support most features of Heaty plus a lot of extras. It’ll be slimmer and easier to configure than Heaty, but without suffering substantial functionality.
Schedy will be able to control not only thermostats, but also switches, lights, media players and almost any other kind of actor present in Home Assistant with only minimal configuration effort. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
It’s configuration shares substantial parts with that of Heaty, hence switching over will just be a matter of minutes for current Heaty users.
What is one of the greatest things about Schedy: it’s future-proof. The scheduling has been untangled from the concept of actors completely, simplifying the code and making it possible to support almost any kind of actor. And if more actor-specific logic is needed for a particular type, that’s really easy to implement.
Are you curious about Schedy? If yes, hold off for some more days. The documentation is still far from being usable and I like to change that before an endless number of questions about the configuration arises.
However, I’d really love to hear your thoughts.
Be prepared for the new Schedy!
