The standard controller that is included with the Recoupaerator is a manual variable speed on/off wall dial control.
The wiring on the back of the panel consists of six wires and it comes with a very short cable attached.
I am not planning to have this dial be the main source of control so I just mounted it with the existing wire and very close to the outlet.
The interior control panel has several wiring options.
These are labeled in the manual. I chose to use the boost control inputs to wire to the Nest Thermostat in the living area. I ran a two wire thermostat wire from this boost control and attached it to the Nest common and fan inputs. The Boost input runs the fan on high speed which is good for clearing kitchen odors etc.
I can turn on the ventilation by using the fan controls on the Nest which are accessible by the phone application as well as on the thermostat. I can set a schedule too. I had to remember to switch it ON though.
I had set this schedule and when it didn’t run I noticed that I had not flipped the ON switch.
I’m hoping this schedule will keep it from getting too stuffy during the hottest part of the day.
There are more controls possible that can interact with the Nest as well as the Wemo system and I’m working on those too.
