Good info. I can manually control the temperature through SmartThings via iPhone or iPad, but not through SmartApps. I purchased our Honeywell thermostat ($139) since it was Z-Wave and could be controlled through our Honeywell 6280i Tuxedo Z-Wave Touch Screen (Ethernet version cost $350+tax & shipping) attached to our ADT system. This was a few years prior to implementing SmartThings, and was also one factor to purchasing SmartThings.
The Honeywell 6280i Tuxedo Z-Wave Touch Screen panel supported this thermostat as well as other Z-Wave devices, but with a limit of eight “Scenes”, which are similar to SmartApps. After implementing SmartThings, I converted the eight “Scenes” into eight SmartApps, then added several more which was not possible on the Honeywell control panel due to its limit.
The WiFI version of the thermostat was upgraded to support a few more than eight “Scenes”, but not the model we purchased since I preferred hardwiring our security system rather than using WiFI. I did see the new ADT SmartThings hub, but it will not work with our system since we have 23 hardwired sensors, four touch screens, and cellular monitoring, all connected to a control panel.
SmartThings states “The Honeywell Z-Wave Thermostat YTH8320ZW1007/U is a Z-Wave-based thermostat. It can be used to remotely and automatically control the temperature inside your home with SmartThings.” So I’m asking how can this be done?
I’m careful about implementing new technology so it integrates with SmartThings (as in this case), but I’m hesitant to begin replacing existing technologies only to now work with SmartThings, when it was supposed to in the first place. How can I directly communicate this issue with SmartThings? Thanks.
