Hey Beckwith - the Iris controller from Lowe’s you referred to only works with new, Iris-enabled tanks (also conveniently sold at Lowe’s) that cost $200 more than standard tanks. Aquanta is designed to retrofit on most water heaters already out there.
Obviously I have an agenda but though I would point that out!
The Iris module is using a standard form factor and my State water heater has the receptacle for this but I don’t use Iris. Does anyone know of a more generic module in this form factor?
I am also interested in this. I have a compatible water heater. Anyone want to develop a device handler?
