Any smart thermostats that could turn on/off another wifi plug?

By domtab ·
Hello, I'm having trouble finding any smart thermostat or a temperature sensor that would just monitor a rooms temperature and after the temp hits a certain degree that it would wirelessly turn on another wifi plug, has anyone seen any piece of tech that could do that or does anyone know how to achieve this ?

Hi domtab,

This is something that I was able to create in 15 minutes with SmartThings and webCore (a community SmartThings app). These are the products I used:

1. https://www.smarthomefocus.com/smartthings-home-automation-app-hub/
Allows you to connect your smart home devices and build automations.

2. https://www.smarthomefocus.com/review-smartthings-motion-sensor/
Allows you to monitor motion and TEMPERATURE

I also used the SmartThings community webCore app, which really allows you to build any automation you want with your smart home. The webCore app uses a simple if this then that approach to building your automation. To test your request, I built a simple automation that does the following:

IF Motion Sensor Temperature > 72
THEN Turn on Fan (You would use your WIFI switch)
WAIT 5 Minutes
THEN Turn off Fan

Let me know if you take this approach and if you need any help getting things setup.

Thanks,

Jason
