Trane ComfortLink II Thermostat
« on: March 28, 2011, 10:36:04 pm »
Does anyone know when this thermostat will be out?

Is anyone a beta tester for Trane?  I've watched this video and it looks pretty cool.

Trane web site says early 2011. The guy in the video says March.

It was never clear to me whether this actually is going to support Z-Wave or if it's WiFi only. He mentions they are adding Schlage LiNK compatibility later in the summer, which may (just) mean the Schlage bridge can talk to it and the bridge provides the Z-Wave interface (as opposed to having Z-Wave in the thermostat for stand-alone operation).

That stuff is at 2:53 into the clip.

Looks like the MSRP is $799.

This is a nice touch screen unit and intuitive GUI as well. I am would pay for something like this if can also control Vera.   Maybe  iPad + inwall mount + native Vera iPad app?  Anyone running Vera Flash Beta on an Android Tablet that give feed back of how the overall experience compares to this Trane unit.
