Integration w/ Lennox variable speed Lennox furnance
« on: March 24, 2016, 10:03:18 am »
Morning all... so I'm planning/wanting to set-up/connect my thermostat to Vera.  Now I know it will work with Nest and other thermostats but not Lennox iComfort Thermostat.  The problem is my furnace is a variable speed and to fully take advantage of that feature / energy efficiency you need a thermostat the works with Lennox's furnance that have variable speed.  NEST does not, and I really want the BEST of both worlds - connecting my HVAC to my home automation but also not loosing the energy effeciency of the variable speed furnace that I paid for :)  THOUGHTS?  Anyone else have same scenario?

I have wanted this for a while there are people doing it for smartthings.

No official API documentation but several people have documented how it works.
