My house is from 1955 if I can do it so can you lol.
I did not run a C wire.
I ran a 24 volt power supply to it.
I’m using a Nest thermostat with no C wire
This might’ve already been stated but it would be nice if the thermostat could send notifications when certain temperature is reached. So if I had a sense Contact sensor on a window that was open the temperature hits a certain degree the thermostat send me a notification and I can go then shut that window. Or vice versa if it gets warm enough I can get a notification and go open that window.
I am very excited about this product! I think the potentials are endless to improve on a home staple that everyone relies on.
I have read all the posts and one thing I believe would be a helpful feature that I think has not been stated is the ability to track Daily/weekly/monthly system usage. Idea is to help identify problems in the system by alarming with higher than normal usage to save time and money.
Example: Our upstairs unit had been running almost 20 hours a day because the fuse on the condenser unit. I did not know it was running this much and we occured a much higher electric bill.
Because of this, it would be nice to track graphically the average daily usage on the fan and condenser having to run to maintain the temp assigned.
This is an idea that can be expanded on but tracking and trending data on your system can help reliability and maintenance of your home system.
Will this be supporting baseboard heats as well ?
I already asked that question because it’s important to me too and have not received an answer. But it would be nice to know.
Sadly, no we will not be able to support those as they are high voltage.
You mean 110? Because mine aren’t 220. They make 220 but I elected to go with 110 because it’s easier to get thermostats and things to go with it.
Just bought the ecobee5 (a.k.a. Smart Home Thermostat with Voice Control) to use with my new 2-stage, Amana HVAC system & humidifier. It comes with one SmartSensor (versus Room Sensor) and I’ve purchased an additional 2-pack from Amazon. ecobee supports all of the following: Alexa (also built-in), Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, and IFTTT.
I think 110 and 220 baseboards are both considered high voltage and likely won’t work with what Wyze is developing judging by Mike’s comment. I’m currently using four Mysa smart thermostats for my baseboards. Works well but a bit of a pain to wire.
I’ll go with another honey well if I have to because I just don’t want to go with another system. I don’t want to add another system to all of the systems that I already have.
Fair enough. I also feel I have too many different brands. I think i have at least 10 different apps for smart devices. Does the Honeywell work with alexa? I like being able to turn on the heat with the wyze motion sensor and turn off the heat after motion is clear for 15 min.
Yes Honeywell does work with Alexa. I just want the ability to preheat a room before I go into it and then turn the heat back down when I’m not in it it’s a room that’s not used much.
I am sure milehiguy - you will be happy with your choice. Because of my big mouth I have had to install several now and every one of them are working as advertised and the friends are still talking to me. Having an extra Alexa spot is kinda handy too. Can hardly wait for the new doorbell cam to be released but I think I will keep my mouth shut this time.
Any update on the Smart Thermostat?
Do you have any update on the timeline for the Early Adapter release of the Wyze Thermostat?
I would like to get it and test it out. My Honeywell wifi thermostat is on the way out as Honeywell esrvices are having so many outages lately. Be
Funny you mention it! We’ve been making some great progress and are still shooting for an early Q3 EA. As you can imagine this product is a pretty massive undertaking, but are getting ready for our next round of prototypes. Then it’ll be Alpha and Beta testing!
Where do I sign up for the Beta Testing. The last Beta I did was for Smartthings hub V2 and that was not fun as their hub had to be switched out because it fried.
