Set Sonoff TH10/16 to different temperature-operations for different timeframes

You are here:

When you have a Sonoff TH10 or Sonoff TH16 you can use this device not only to measure the temperature and humidity, but also turn on/off a device attached to it based on the measured temperature. Did you know you can drive the same attached device with seperate temperature settings per multiple timeframes?

In our example we drive a electrical heated hottub manually with the help of a TH10. Although the writer of this article doesn’t have a hottub, this example is just to make clear the possibilities of the features of the Sonoff TH10 and Sonoff TH16. Let’s say we want to have it heated to a constant temperature of 28°C starting from 18:00 untill 23:59. Outside this timeframe we want to have it a lower temperature. This tutorial only demonstrates the 28°C at 18:00 – 23:59 because the other timeframe can be setup in exactly the same way or just use only 1 timeframe.

WARNING!

At the end of an Auto schedule the Sonoff TH10/16 keeps its last state. So if the TH10/16 has the attached device turned on at 23:30 and nothing else happened before 23:59 it will stay on after 23:59. If you want to be sure the TH10/16 is off you either have to add a normal schedule to turn it off at 00:00 or set a new Auto schedule starting at 0:00.
