sonoff TH16 Controlling temperature at specific times

 HI I have a sonoff TH16 with temperature monitor and a sonoff basic. I was hoping to be able to use the sonoff TH16 to sense the temperature and use a scene to turn on the TH16 and the basic at a certain time 8:30 and when the temperature is less than 19, then to turn it off at 9:30 or if the temperature is greater  than 22.

is this possible I cant seem to get it set up??

Yes you can add created scene in Ewelink to Alexa and run in Routine. It shows up as a device not a group

Dear Sonoff,

Is there any update on adding the ability to control the temperature at specific times?

This would be a HUGELY useful feature! :)

Would it also be possible to report the temperature to 1 decimal place?........or at least allow it to be configured to 1  or 2 decimal places?

The app only reports in whole degrees which doesn't provide enough granularity to set the temperature for appropriate comfort levels.

I have the si7021 sensor, for example, which is capable of reporting to 2 decimal places.

DOES anyone at itead, ewlink or anywhere read these forums.  There are massive improvements to these devices with very little software updates!!!!!

Pls listen to what we are asking you to do!

check out alternative firmware, i think the out of the box solution is really just a basic example of what can be achieved.  for mature systems check out tasmota this imho is best served using a locally hosted mqtt broker, but a public broker would work probably as well as the remote ewelink servers.

Get a simple timer thats rated for your power usage, then use that to feed your sonoff  TH . when power is supplied to the sonoff, it will boot into auto mode

wow John Gemmell, what a great idea to use an external timer. Thanks for your innovative and elegant solution that answers the question completely...  I never would have thought about this.

The TH16 already has the capability to do timed switching, as well as controlling temperature. The question was how to combine those two already existing logical functions in one event (not how to wire up a clunky setup with multiple old technology units).

Unbelievable that it doesn't do something as simple as combining temperature control with the timing, especially as this was bought up here three years ago. It's so obvious to allow full control, I'm staggered that it doesn't do this (I never dreamt it wouldn't). Makes me think that I brought the wrong product. I am deeply unhappy over this which spoils an otherwise perfect setup.

Oh well, I guess you get what you pay for. (If you pay peanuts you get monkeys...)
Just a pity because the hardware of the units is quite nice otherwise. Maybe they expect that everyone who takes this serious will flash the units with a different firmware anyway.

Although I think these already quite popular products would sell even better if the Sonoff software wouldn't be as clunky...

To be fair, I have received a reply to the message I left via the eWelink app, at least they are aware of the problem and will work on it, it said: Dear user , Thank you for contacting eWelink. Your generous feedback and suggestion is highly appreciated. Please note that your feedback/suggestion has been forwarded to our development team.It will be evaluated carefully and probably be used in future upgrade. Thank you for your effort in helping us improve our product. Feel free to let us know if you have any other idea about our product or service.
Anyone help with a th-16 unit nor responding to high and low temp settings in auto mode with latest firmware? Tried two devices and sensors. No luck.. trying g to control an ac Window unit.

Is it possible to up ? 

It's so disheartening to find that this post is 4 years old and still nothing has been done to add support for more advanced logic conditions. It seems like a simple software modification. When I connected my TH16, being able to control output using both temperature AND time was the first thing I wanted to do. No wonder everyone are flashing these devices, they're not listening to their customers.
