I am looking for some thermostat options to integrate with my ST hub for controlling my heater.
I found CT100 and GoControl as Z-wave thermostats.
I see that CT100 is widely used and known by the community. There is also a custom app for that one.
However, I also want to control the thermostat from Amazon’s Alexa.
I see that Alexa - Smartthings integration does only support switches and routines.
There is no direct control of thermostats. (Am I wrong ?)
So, only way of controlling the z-wave thermostat through Alexa is setting up a voice controlled routine.
But there are phrases like :
“Alexa, raise kitchen thermostat by 10 degrees.”
“Alexa, lower kitchen thermostat by 10 degrees.”
“Alexa, set kitchen thermostat to 70 degrees.”
How do these work ?
is there a direct Alexa - thermostat integration ?
is there a way to set routines with variables ? (I couldn’t find that , if there is)
Here , it says that this type of interaction is possible:
here is the Alexa-Smartthings FAQ,:
But it does not show any z-wave controlled thermostat as supported device. It just lists “Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat” which is WiFi controlled and rather expensive.
I have another thread about this but on a specific device (GoControl) here:
This device is advertised as “Works with Alexa” but I didn’t understand how.
If anyone who knows how to raise thermostat temperature by 10 degrees through Alexa, please share…
