Easy Heat / Warm Tiles Thermostat?
« on: November 12, 2017, 03:40:18 pm »
Is there a way to get these incorporated into Vera?

I would like to spend considerably less than $275 for the WiFi Thermostat.

Is there maybe a way with sensors and relays with PLEG?

TIA

I would seriously recommend that you pay the asking price for the properly designed and certified compatible thermostat.

Since you are essentially talking about an under-floor heating system that is the equivalent of an electric stove, the consequences of a malfunction of a vera/pleg based control system could be catastrophic.

Do not cheap out on your families safety.

Point well taken and there's no arguing with that logic!


I already have a wall mounted thermostat and am considering getting the WiFi one but either way I'd like to get it connected to Vera.. I am in process of setting up some $30 Amazon Fire HD8 Tablets as wall mounted controllers for Vera using ImperiHome and sorta wanted to remove the wall mounted Floor Tile Thermostat completely and replace it with the ImperiHome Tablet Controller. The spot where the existing thermostat is mounted is a perfect spot for this wall mounted tablet.

This lousy forum software used by micasaverde doesn't properly upload pictures from tapatalk (Come on Vera, get into the 21st century! For a tech HA company you should be embarrassed)

It has an two-wire control from the heat sensor, BTW. Some sort of logic is being transmitted through that, no? The eight wire connector is for each half of the thermostat to connect.
