I’m a long time Homey user and once started (before Homey) with an X10 system. My mechanical home ventilation unit (Mechanische ventilatie, JE Storckair CML 14) is now connected with 2 X10 modules to control it through Homey. Since a few days my X10 controller (CM15Pro) is dead so I am looking for a new solution. I found out that a fully new mechanical ventilation unit uses much less power and has much less noise. But to integrate it more cleanly in Homey I was wondering if there are any Mechanical Ventilation units that can be natively integrated in Homey without the use of seperate controllers/switches/relays etc…
Because of the much better power consumption the time it takes to pay itself back (terugverdientijd in Dutch) is about 3 to 4 years. So that’s another +.
Would love to here everyone’s ideas and solutions.
Also the itho products requires quite some fiddling around , way beyond every-day- customer-knowledge-level.
I dare not say you need to be nerd to do it, as some people completely flip through the roof when they see that word.
But if you can handle X10 (why this never made it to larger customer audience?) You can handle the Itho-piggyback that Arjen Hiemstra developed and sells.
On tweakers there is a loooong thread about it:
