After multiple weekends of trying to re-integrate (worked fine before) my Honeywell thermostat into my system, I am throwing in the towel. I guess that the mistake that I made was upgrading my hub to 2.0, but after trying every suggestion that I can find online, contacting ST support several times, resetting twice, unplugging for extended periods, and copious amounts of cursing (which always seems to work in a pinch), and everything but kicking it (guy fix #2), I’ve had it. Right now it’s nothing more than a crappy thermostat with a very crappy user interface.
So now I am left with the question of what to replace it with. I have an older AC system, and had to use the Honeywell Wire Saver, five wire adapter. So now that I have five wires to the wall plate, can I use any other modern thermostat that requires five wires? I am already using Dropcam, now Nestcam, and their app, and don’t mind the fact that their thermostat doesn’t appear to be on the Samsung list of supported 3rd party devices. I am more than happy to use their app to set temperatures before heading to the bay house for the weekend, but really looking for others input on what they are doing, and what they are most happy with.
Feedback and ideas welcome. Also interested in whether you would like to see the Honeywell dropped into a Ninja blender and posted on Youtube, roasted over an open fire, or blasted to smithereens with a firearm. Also posted on Youtube.
