What happens if the fill solenoid sticks on and the waste solenoid is closed? The tub has an overflow, but it is in front of the waste solenoid and so you could have a floor full of water...

the waste solendoid is timed to release ~15 minutes after filling has completed (and is normally open)

but in any case, the whole area is a wetroom ...

this is the unit i used, but i was pushed for time as the plumber was waiting, so had to source locally at a premium. there are better priced options on ebay, from around $50 USD

if i did it again, this is the unit i would use

Hi, very interesting project!
Can you interact with the loxone miniserver by http commands?

You mentioned the name of the software that you used for your button project, but I can't make it on the video. Can you tell us what it is? Neat idea and nice setup!

its the same automation server as mentioned in the first post, the loxone miniserver. www.loxone.com

in the configuration software, you can configure the input to recognise single push, double push, triple push, quad push, and push&hold. timings are all adjustable.

so in the shower for example, i could make that button start the bath / dim the lights / play the "chillout" playlist with a triple click. in fact i might do that tongue.gif
