These examples demonstrate the versatility of the AUX module in transforming your air conditioning system into a smart and efficient setup. Whether it’s through temperature monitoring, smart control panels, detailed statistics, energy consumption analytics, or fault detection, the module offers a range of possibilities for optimizing and customizing your air conditioning experience.
Implement a temperature monitoring system that logs both indoor and outdoor temperatures over time. You can create graphical representations, such as line graphs, to visually track temperature variations. This can provide valuable insights into temperature trends and help optimize energy consumption.
Develop intuitive and user-friendly control panels for each room equipped with an air conditioner. These panels can be accessed through a web interface or a dedicated mobile app. Users can adjust temperature settings, fan speeds, and modes conveniently from their devices, providing a centralized overview of all connected rooms.
Implement a feature that gathers detailed statistics about the air conditioning system. This may include coolant temperatures, compressor temperatures, and other relevant parameters. Displaying this information in a clear and concise format can help users understand the performance of their air conditioning units, identify potential issues, and optimize maintenance schedules.
Taking an additional stride in customization, you have the option to establish rules using either HomeAssistant’s built-in automations or leverage the capabilities of Node Red. In the above example, the system is configured to restrict the set temperature within the range of 18 to 19/20 degrees, effectively preventing excessive heating or cooling. Additionally, the system can validate the status of doors, requiring an additional door sensor (available at an approximate cost of 10€), ensuring that the air conditioning operates considering the openness or closure of doors.
