now if only i could get a humidistat instead of the electrical timer to control output!


Here you go http://xpelair.co.nz/afawcs0141432/CATID=18/ID=20/SID=1030025853/productdetails.html

and here http://www.securimax.co.nz/fans/fan_accessories/humidistat_controllers.php you should be able to get these from someone like Mastertrade


Those humidistats turn on when a certain humidity level is reached, ie a steamy bathroom etc,

The OP is seeking a humidistat to turn Off when a certain level is reached,


You can modify them to do the opposite.

acsonline: I installed a heatpump in the baby (now toddler) room. After installation the room humidity started getting down to 15-25% through the night here in Wellington.


How are you obtaining these humidity values?  Is it from the heat pump wall controller?

Yes Nety, the heat pump will only dehumidify in cooling mode, unless perhaps it is switching to this mode occasionally as some sort of humidity control component.  Actually this has got me thinking that maybe the heatpump has some 'features' that you currently have activated that you don't really want. 

Under normal heating only conditions the heat pump should not be dehumidifying, which sucks as during a wet winter is typically when you would want this feature to dry a home.
