Timers for the Wi-Fi Desktop Thermostat
Indeed, why limit the Elektor Wi-Fi Desktop Thermostat to the desktop? As it is, the device is already capable of controlling the heating system in your home but if we add some features to it, it will be even better suited for this task. For instance, a timer, and especially one that can be programmed for every day of the week, is a great extension for controlling the temperature in your home. Besides adding timers we will also add the possibility to disable the temperature sensor to allow the thermostat to act as a pure timer with Internet connectivity.
