I am not so sure if this is the right forum, so if this is the wrong question, please let me know where to post it.
I have the following requirements for a home automation:
1. Integrate Nest Thermostat
2. Control Separate multi-speed fan via Nest
3. Control fireplace via Nest
4. Control lights around the home
5. Set lighting moods
6. Control A/V components via one remote
To make it all work, I need to do some conditional programming. The most challenging part is to have Nest control both my Fan (in summer), and my fireplace (in winter). Currently Nest either controls the AC, or heater, and my fan and fireplace have manual switches. I'd like to connect them, so in the summer when Nest starts the AC, it should start the fan too, and in the Winter, when it starts the heater, to start the fireplace as well.
To my knowledge, only Control 4, or maybe Crestron could do this.... Nothing Lutron provides could be doing this. Now, I REALLY like Lutron dimmers and switches, way nicer than what Control4 provides... is there a way to easily integrate the two? So, Control 4 to be the Hub/central control and to control Lutron dimmers and lights, plus Nest, and Control 4 fan switch?
If so, which Lutron dimmers/products are needed to make this happen? and what procedures should be followed?
