Q. Where can I find a sensor that’s able to detect heat from the sun and (via a link to the HVAC system) capable of opening and closing draperies? – Peter, Syracuse, NY
A remote temp sensor can do the trick. But if you want that sensor to trigger anything other than the HVAC, you’ll need an automation system. An automation system will allow you to program a scenario where if the temperature gets to 80-degrees you can have the system trigger anything connected. Shades, HVAC, spa, lights, cameras… you name it.
