Is there a way to have Google Home tell a device (such as a wifi switch) but to turn on based on the weather outside? I'm wondering this because I want to tell my old attic fan when to turn on but the best time to turn on would be when the outside temp is cooler than the indoor temp since you can only use an attic fan when the windows are open. But I don't know the extent to which you can tell Google to compare data from multiple sources and make a decision from the information. I'm not a programmer or anything like that, so I don't understand the code writing process, but I feel like if there was a way to use pictures and linked objects and make them an equation, you could program it yourself. Is that what they something when it's considered open source?

Thanks for reaching out.
Scheduling the devices (such as a Wi-Fi switch) to turn on/off based on the weather outside isn't supported. We're always looking for ways to add more features — we'll take it as feedback. Should you still need our help please let me know, otherwise I'll be locking this thread after 24 hours.
Thanks for the response. I figured it was probably a far stretch. Might be something worth investigating if you could use that sort of info to tell you sprinklers whether or not to run, or if someone has a heated driveway it could automatically turn on when it's scheduled to snow.
