How might one go about adding “presence detection”? I’m not talking about home/away. I mean detecting when a person has walked up to the thermostat and turning the screen up without touching, so there’s one less thing to clean. Then when there’s nobody in front of the thermostat, turning the screen light entirely off. So that at night, it doesn’t light up the room.
I have a partner who is incredibly sensitive to light. If we don’t tape over all the leds on gfci outlets, he can’t sleep. If he sees the glow of the new thermostat under the bedroom door, it will not be appreciated.
