Brand new here, looks like a pretty nice website.
So, Does anybody know if any of the smart thermostats currently available are capable of using a temperature range rather than a single arbitrary number as it’s temperature setting?
Here’s what I’m trying to describe: I want to be able to set a maximum and minimum temperature range on the thermostat. Let’s say I’m heating my house and I want the heat to turn on at 63 degrees and heat the house until it’s 70. When the the temperature hits 70 I want the heat to shut off and let the house cool back down to 63 before it turns on and heats to 70 again.
Does this characteristic seem like any of the smart thermostat solutions that are currently available any of you folks are aware of? Seems like every thermostat I’ve seen wants to just heat around a single temp setting and it makes the furnace constantly turn on and off trying to unrealistically maintain the temperature at that single number.
I don’t particularly care if the thing know when I get home from work or when I get up in the morning; I just want to keep the temperature in a specific RANGE not at one specific number.
