I’m wondering if this product could work for (/be easily hacked for) my problem…
I’m part of a group that rents out a community hall to a variety of users- and we often find a number of hall users change the current thermostat to ‘always on’ and then don’t turn it off overnight.
When the hall is then unused for the next 24+hours this is a bit of a waste of gas… (and an unhappy bill for us).
I would like to be able to set a programme-timer - and then lock it.
Then for ‘normal users’ I only want them to have a +1hour boost or similar. So if they are feeling cold fair enough they can put it on, but not leave it on for the next few days by mistake.
Ideally I would like a keycode that you could type in to the screen to enable all buttons - butwithout it you can only access ‘boost’. However I would settle for ‘boost’ on LCD and use a laptop /ssh to re-enable the LCD.
I’m very capable of programming in python - but less experienced in other languages.
How easy is the UI software to hack for what I want (or do you have some feature like that already?)
Another problem - we don’t have WiFi on all the time. I can setup a temporary system to install everything, but am I right to assume it will still “work” when the internet isn’t on?
