Hello. I am a newbie and know little about this.
I am wanting to make a thermostat to control a special heating unit. Is there a way to look at a hourly weather temperature forecast online for my area? Then take that hourly temperature forecast data along with other data such as inside temp, time of day, etc to control a heating unit.
For example, if its winter, and its a mild day outside not calling for any heat but the weather forecast shows the temperature dramatically falling that evening. I would like to read that to turn the heat on a few hour early.
Our heating system is very slow to catch up but if I can make a thermostat to turn the heat on early before it get to cold it wont be playing catch up on the temperature.
