I know that not everyone has received their SmartThings (I have not), but am wondering if anyone has begun looking into IP based thermostats. I have been eyeing the Venstar T5800, the Ecobee series, and the NEST. I’d buy one today, if I knew what would integrate into SmartThings (eventually).
I know NEST has unofficial API’s, Ecobee just released an API to market (and I am reading might support Zigbee?: (links below), and the Venstar I have heard doesn’t have an API but MiCasaVerde has a few of the Venstar devices supported, so there must be a way to do it.
Any thoughts? I am not a fan of any of the current thermostats for Z-Wave or Zigbe
