I am about to embark on a full renovation of a bathroom, which will entail stripping back to expose everything down to the wiring, plumbing etc.
With that in mind I would be interested in hearing from the community on what you would be looking to automate and measure using node red if you had a similar opportunity.
Right now my thoughts are:
- measure humidity connected to bathroom fan - allows the ability to automatically switch the fan on when reaching specific humidity level
- measure temp - although I will not be getting underfloor heating and only have a towel radiator (perhaps there is something that allows the valve to be turned on and off?)
- automated control of lighting (no dimmers though) - possibly using a shelly 1PM so that I can also monitor power consumption
- measurement of water consumption using a flow meter - may be overkill to put on each tap, shower, bath and toilet - perhaps using a YF-S201 sensor but any other recommendations here are welcome
I am already running node red on my raspberry Pi and have other devices around the house with Tasmota firmware running so preferably keeping in that ecosystem would be best.
Looking forward to hearing your ideas
