Control Part Cooling with Z height

Hey guys, I'm trying to overcome an issue. Just wondering if it would be possible to control a fan using the amount of z height the printer is at. for example
- if the Z <= .18mm height, then set the fan to 30%
- if the Z >= .19mm height, then set the fan to100%
I want to do the fan control completely at the printer and not use the slicer control at all. For the most part, we have so many printers with different manufactures of fans the speeds are all inconsistent and the low fan speed is absolutely critical for us. Im only ever printing with the same PLA material and printing the same models over and over in my farm so Ill never need to control the fan with the slicer.
I suspect this could be accomplished with the daemon.g file and conditional gcode to monitor z position and change the fan accordingly.
