Ok I got some more info. A lot more info. Wasn’t easy but customer service was able to tell me this:
The hardware thermostat is:
That makes sense @JDRoberts that if connected via zigbee that it can only be connected to one “network coordinator” which I assume is the hardware device used to talk to the thermostat I refer to as a “zigbee hub”?
The power company said it cannot be connected to Alexa but I am sure I can find a device handler or code and make it happen somehow.
Knowing now that it is zigbee does Smartthings hub even have zigbee support?
@WB70 thank you for pointing out that thread. Damn it looks like you are exact correct, since it is provided by them for free you must use their hub/gateway and it can only be paired with one at a time so this looks like a no-go.
Time to get a REAL smart thermostat fully compatible with Smartthings!
So here is my situation. I have an HVAC system with AC fan unit outside and gas powered furnace in attic. I have full access to both.
I only have ONE thermostat location and it is downstairs which I rarely go I spend most of my time upstairs for bedroom/sleep and in my home office.
However I do have sensors upstairs and downstairs that read temperature (contact sensors)/multi sensors.
My goal is to get a smart thermostat compatible with Smartthings hub that I can integrate. So that the real temperature reading would be upstairs where I am normally at.
What thermostat(s) do you guys recommend for this? I am pretty sure NEST does not have remote temperature modules but Echobee does. That is pretty much the extent I know of the compatible Smartthings thermostats any recommendations I am all ears!
