Extend thermostat lower limit
Summary: The lowest you can set the thermostat is 50F (10C). There are MANY cases where customers could want to set the temp lower than that: vacation homes, garages, outbuildings and guest houses, even (in my case) a boat. The thermometer is already capable of reporting on temperatures well below freezing, so it should be a simple software change to allow for lower temperature settings. Wyze, please fix this!!
If you have a similar need please ‘Like’ this post to get Wyze’s attention!
Additional info: I have a large boat, with a Wyze thermostat to control the central heating. I also have a Wyze thermostat in my house. When I’m on the boat (approx. half the year) I want to set my house temperature to 40F, so that I don’t waste energy but the pipes don’t freeze. When I’m at home I want to set the boat to 40F, for the same reason. There’s no need to heat either place to 50F, which wastes energy.
I can’t figure out why Wyze would set the lower limit to 50, so assume it was an arbitrary decision and that the product manager just didn’t think of use cases like the ones above.
Moderator: this post is separate from the “garage” wishlist, which conflates the lower limit request with another request concerning the Y1 wire and omits the many, many other use cases besides garages.
[Mod Note]: This wishlist topic is not limited to the 1st post. This wishlist topic serves as a collection of users’ ideas and use-cases for Wyze to consider when implementing the requested change as indicated by the title and supplemented with replies. Consolidating ideas and use-cases into a single topic helps Wyze employees be more efficient and increases the chance of implementing this change.
