Also remember that CT100s do NOT have local programming capability, meaning that unless it is controlled by Vera, there are no schedules. A better choice is the updated CT101 available from Lowes as the Iris Thermostat. It has local scheduling capability in case you ever remove the zwave controller.

Instead of a CT101 could a CT32 would be better? I heard its the newest zwave plus module in it.

The LCD face of the CT-32 looks *exactly* like the CT-101 that Loews sells as their Iris thermostat. Unfortunately, a quick google search reveals no sources selling the CT-32. I suspect they are all the same model with certain features either enabled or disabled, or rebranded for other companies to sell (2Gig, Lowes, etc).

Well I am getting it from the main websites

Yup, one of the benefits of Z-wave Plus is OTA upgrades.

The CT100 brings together everything you need to create an energy-intelligent home: remote control, seven-day programming, and seamless integration with the Go!Control panel

Yup. Maybe after CES in January things will start to pop up.

Personally, if I replace my CT101, it will be with an Ecobee3. The idea of temperature averaging based on which rooms are occupied is a compelling one in terms of comfort and cost savings.

Yeah, I like the ecobee3 but i wish they had APIs that a locally available to the internal network instead of going out to the internet. If the internet was ever out, vera wouldnt have access to it as I read.

None. RTCOA is the OEM manufacturer fro many Z-wave thermostats.

TC1 is correct that they share the same manufacturer.  However, the CT100 does not use USNAP modules, whereas most of the other RTCOA thermostats do.  This includes the CT30, CT32, CT50/3M-50, and CT80.  There are WIFI, Z-wave, and Zigbee USNAP modules and each compatible thermostat can accept two.  The CT80 CT100 seems to have the least buggy Z-wave.

Correction:  See other thread.
