On Clock#Time=all,**:00 do
If [something#something]= something

This will perform the function every hour on the hour.

Re: switch without gpio

I don't know of a way to change the state of a GPIO that does not exist.
Maybe try using a dummy device to change values with rules?

Re: MCP23017 question

I'm not sure the MCP23017 supports PWM. That's a question for the devs. Some of the native ESP GPIO support PWM. Might be easier to use those.

Or a dedicated PWM output chip module.

Re: MCP23017 question

Not sure you need the ADS1115 here as I am still a bit confused as to what the ESP is actually doing here. You say you want to send these analog values TO the ESP. I assume they then go out to a dimmer of some sort?

Maybe a picture or a diagram or schematic would be helpful.

Re: ideas for integrating esp to existing anolog thermostat

Maybe not the most elegant solution but you could emulate the button presses with pulses from a relay or maybe transistors connected via a store bought relay board or a homemade board piggy backed onto your thermostat board. Just need 4 gpio outputs connected to the tact switches on your board.

You can use a workaround. If you use the "framed" OLED and a regular OLED at the same time that works fine. As long a they are on different I2C addresses then it works no problem. Have a couple units doing it for some time now.
