Advice for a living room thermostat

Post by Bladerer » Saturday 27 January 2018 15:39

Hi Guys,

I’ve been playing with my new RFLink gateway and domoticz in the last week and all seems to be working quite well. I’m now looking to do some next projects and the next that comes to mind is to replace my living room thermostat (currently a Honeywell chronotherm IV) with an RF compatible thermostat so I can control it with domoticz.

I have been running through the list of supported devices but I’m not quite sure what thermostat would be advised. Most of them on the supported list don’t seem to be widely available in the Netherlands.
I was hoping that one of you could give me some pointers where to start looking?

Thanks

Kinda depends on what you are looking for in functionality. I use a Nest, but something I would be better off with a thermostat that supports zones (Honeywell EVO For example).

The advantage of a Domoticz controllable thermostat is that one may use all sensor info to control it in the Events.

Perhaps that would be the next step, but for now a simple snap-in replacement for the single room thermostat would be ok. All I would want to do at the moment is to have domoticz control the temperature based on time of day etc.

My current thermostat seems to loose all it’s programmed schemes. I would like to be able to do the programming on my Raspberry pi so that I don’t have to go over this times taking process of re-programming my Honeywell every couple of weeks.

I use this one working really good,

kamer thermostaat E-thermostaat Essent
€ 55,00
http://link.marktplaats.nl/m1248803303? ... ialbuttons

I don't have complicated schedules in use. My need was that it was natively supported by domoticz. E thermostaat let you pay a fee, of 15 euro to register it on a new account. (If i remember correctly)

Thanks Joostnl,

However this is making it even more complicated and confusing to be honest. You say the device is working perfectly, but if I look on the RFLink supported devices list I can’t see it. Am I overlooking something and if so what other non listed room thermostats are supported?

The e-thermostat can be equiped with a wifi connector, which I think talks to the thermostat via RF. Domoticz has native support for the wifi version, but it is named ICY thermostat. Icy is a Dutch brand.

Marco
