Do you have a humidifier or dehumidifier installed in your system? That can limit your options a bit. Not all thermostats work to control them.

The CT101 reports humidity and it has a lot of terminals for other wires so it may be able to control a humidifier. The manual talks about humidifiers and dehumidifiers but I found no place an H or DH wire on the thermostat. https://www.lowes.com/campaign/iris/pdf/CT101_IBIE_18jun12_revised.pdf

I don't that I know of

Yes ct101 is cheap enough to try and if it doesn't meet what I'm looking for I can upgrade later

It's more money, but I'm really happy with the Ecobee3 both standalone and integrated with my VeraPlus. Works well.

You can buy a Z-Wave thermostat ... I have had one for years (I have a 2 stage Heat Pump with aux electric heat, but it also supports gas heat)

I think if Alexa works with Vera, Alexa will control the CT101.
