The only electrical timers I can find are programmable for up to 7 days...I want one I can program for up to a month. Do they exist?

mine has a holiday function if that helps.

7 day timer for heating AND hot water (7 programmable steps for on/off for each per day) and then can be delayed by up to 28 days to start on a set date..

i am sure there are monthly programmable tho.

Jim,
Do you mean a plug-in type for a light or similar, or exactly what?

I don't really mind what it is - so long as I can program my central heating with it! (and so long as it's not too expensive - less than £50 ideally...)

I have a 7 say programmable thermostat with holiday mode. Never seen a. 30 day but I guess you could do it with a plc or arduino board
If you had the willingness

Plug-in timer is not suitable for programming central heating.

I'd agree with everyone else; you want a 7 day central heating timer with holiday mode.

I have a wireless one on my central heating with built in thermostat. Much more efficient than timer only.

I swapped my standard thermostat for a programmable one when we had kids so we could keep the house warmish at night but still have it step up ready for morning. Think I'm going to swap it for a wireless as above as it's currently mounted right next to the kitchen so if someone's cooking the rest of the house goes cold :/

I get my shorts, floral shirt on, put a hanky with knotted corners on my head and sit in a deck chair with the lights off so the gas man doesn't know I'm in when he comes to collect his money Cool

one i have is the DT10RF digistat optimiser, this features the digital 7 day remote thermostat, links in, does hot cold times 6 a day, 7 day programmable and like i just said, i hit the "holiday function" and it will pause the heating cycle (heating off in the mean time) for up to 1 month


also learns the temperature characteristics of the room/house so it will come on to have the temperature of the house ready at the set time (so for example if you want the temperature at 25degC at 8 you no longer have to set the heating to come on at 7, itll work out where it needs to come on based on the temperature of the house (so itmight be 7:55, or it might be 7:05 etc)


bear in mind that there are 2 types of this.. the digistat and the optimiser, the optimiser (linked below) is the one with 7 day heating control and the learning timer

This reminds me I must build my heating control

What I want

Temperature monitoring up and down stairs and outside

Then I will build, program and install it so the heating is controlled up and down stairs separately and at different temperatures at different times of day.... Also if it's cold in the early hours the heating comes on early to get the house warmed up for when wife and kids get up.

Does that sound like a good idea?

If it was up to me I'd just wear more clothes Rolling Eyes

My dad's house has individual programmable thermostats for upstairs and downstairs and a pressurised hot water system, the hot water tank looks like a submarine Laughing

Someone at work has split their house into 3 zones. It's just a case of adding valves and controls. Not sure what the outside temperature is gaining you, at the end of the day the are where they are is either hot enough or not. The off the shelf controllers learn how long it takes the house to temp to rise by a degree as an average and use this to estimate what time to come on to be at the desired temperature by the desired time.

The biggest problem is it's all fine if you live life to a regular timetable, if you have a irregular shifts you end up with the heating on all the time as you can't be bothered to reprogram it.
