Nice idea. Didn't realise it was possible to do automations based on values?
Oddly, you can view the humidity in HomeKit when viewing the Settings screen for a thermostat. But it doesn't look like you can do anything with it.
People at Tado, why is this not possible? This is one of the main reasons I've bought Tado. I would like to start my bathroom ventilators when humidity goes over a certain level.
People at Tado, is this a HomeKit issue or an issue in your domain?
I could be wrong, but even if you dont have any eve products....you can still use the eve app to use all of its options for scenes and trigger events......and once saved those events/tiggers will appear on the home app.
So just create a generic scene in the home app, then goto the eve app and you should be able to ADD rules to that scene to include devices and set triggers that are not even eve things.
I didn't see this thread and I mistakenly opened a new identical one... giving this a thumb up hoping they will add the feature in next app updates
I would really like to be able to use humidity from tado in HomeKit!
Download the EVE app, you can set up automations with triggers such as Humidity increases above 40% which are automatically added to HomeKit (and vice versa). You can then adjust the actions plus times, people.
I use it for Hue motion sensors which has lux levels. Created the automation trigger in EVE, then converted to shortcut in HomeKit.
You can also use convert to shortcut in HomeKit to find the humidity and act on it. But you cannot use the humidity as a trigger.
Not yet resolved, but hopefully will be soon: https://community.tado.com/en-gb/discussion/comment/28852/#Comment_28852
@Andi51081 Don't want to wait for tado° ? Go for Aqara sensors. They are cheap, reliable and work on Zigbee (no wiring required, 2 years battery life approx.) If you look for simplicity pick E1 Hub.
Is there a way to use the tado humidity sensors to trigger an extractor fan?
From what I understand the answer is no, but checking...
