The best way to automate your underfloor heating program?

The best way to automate your underfloor heating program?

I have underfloor heating in the bathroom controlled by an Eve outlet through HomeKit for when we take a shower. I would like to automate it, but our program is random and varied and, of course, takes an hour to warm up. For the evening – I was thinking of setting it up somehow so that it would light up whenever the living room lamps are on (we’ll probably sit down for a while before the shower and this stops it from turning on if we’re outside). As for the morning, waking up in the morning is quite accidental. I was hoping that I would be able to run an automation that would turn on the heating 7-8 hours after we went to bed – which could be felt by looking at the last light in the house being turned off and starting a timer. But I don’t think it’s possible? The lift could be anywhere from 6:00 to 9:00, which means a long time to heat something that is not used. If I can’t automate it, I’d better replace it with a manual timer! Any ideas appreciated.
