Nest Thermostat Variables


Recommended Posts

I have a damper system in my home, which allows me to use one AC and furnace for three separate zones.  When one zone needs air and the others don't, the dampers close for the other two and the one zone gets the air it needs.  The dampers are connected to a controller that is connected to three separate Nest thermostats, with one for each zone.

The bonus room is above the garage and is its own zone.  It gets really warm up there during the summer months, and I choose not to turn on the AC because it cycles on and off so much throughout the day because it cools so quickly.

Is there a way to have Control4 turn on the AC in the bonus room only when the AC turns on for one of the other levels?  That way, both dampers will open and the bonus room will ride out an existing cycle rather than starting and stopping its own.  I'm trying to reduce unnecessary wear and tear if possible while also keeping the room at a decent temperature.  I've looked at the variables available for the Nest thermostats but am not familiar with what information they give me and what I can do with them.

Any help is appreciated!
