Rules for bathroom ventilation

#1 Post by sawo » 16 Jun 2020, 20:55

Hi all,

could any one please assist me with a espeasy rule?

I would like to setup an bathroom ventilation rule,
so when the lux value is above 100 and/or the humidity is above 65 the fan should turn on and stay on for 5min.
I am using a wemos d1, dht22 and a bh1750.

This is the rule I have to far: but the "delay" doesn't work...
On System#Boot do
gpio,0,0
endon

On Light#Lux>100 do
gpio,0,1
endon

On Light#Lux<99 do
delay 300
gpio,0,0
endon

thx
sawo

Never use delay, it's blocking.

Code: Select all

On System#Boot Do
 Let,1,0
EndOn

On Humidity#Level>65 Do
  Event,FanOn
EndOn

On Light#Lux>100 Do
  Event,FanOn
EndOn

On FanOn Do
  GPIO,0,1
  TimerSet,1,300
EndOn

On Rules#Timer=1 Do
  GPIO,0,0
EndOn
This rule will have the fan running until the lux and humidity is below those values and then run for 300 seconds.

Hi grovkillen,

do you think you can help me again with this rule?

I want to have a short delay of 30sec, before the fan turns on, when the lux value is greater then 100.

How can I realize this.

thx

Hello,
I made recently a bathroom fan control based on light on / off ( lux detection was not possible because our bathroom has a window!).
The control is based on the idea to mesure the humidity when the light is switched on, to switch the fan if the humidity value is above a certain level for me : 40%.
Experrience shows me that the humidity change quickly after after fan runs because the humidity sensor near the fan mesures the real ambiance air humidity after some time. So i make a new mesure 60 sec after light on.
When light is switched off : new mesure and compare with value at beginning. If no change turn fan off. If humidity has increased, run the fan until hum level reachs the start level.
After 15 min stop fan anyway. If light is switched on when fan is running no new value is mesured because the deshumidification process is still ongoing : this could be the case to turn light on quickly after having turn thr light off.
Data are send to home assistant for management
See my rules below

One ac adapter is the power supply (on the board)
The other monitors the on /off of the light
