Z Wave Thermostat w/ Remote Sensors


Recommended Posts

I am looking for a Z-Wave Thermostat that can use remote temperature sensors.  the Alarm.Com ADC-T3000 looks like it would work well (and is cheap.)  Does anyone know if the remote sensor to thermostat assignment can be done from the ISY?  All of the documentation I can find uses Alarm.Com's web portal for configuration.  This link has the Z-Wave info for the device, I'm just not sure how Z-Wave peer to peer linking works.

Any other suggestions?  I'm currently using Insteon's wall mount thermostat paired with an Insteon wireless thermostat, but now that the wireless is discontinued, that seems to be a dead end.

Thanks

It looks like the remote sensors use association to talk to the thermostat. If that is true, the then isy would not be aware of them so they wouldn't be able to be used. The thermostat may make the information available to the isy to be used however. 

Keep in mind you will most likely need to add additional zwave devices to ensure strong communication. It may be easier and cheaper to use the ecobee3 and the nodeserver for it

Thanks for the response.... Couple follow up questions.

The native Z-Wave hub for these things is able to programmatically assign the remote sensors to different thermostats based on schedules etc.... not just during initial configuration.  Does that still sound like it is using "Association?" I don't know much about Z-wave.

Can the Ecobee (or any of these "wifi" thermostats) work with direct communication to the node server without a web proxy server?

Thanks

If the native controller for the thermostat is capable of that then it's most likely not using association. With that said, they may be using custom code that the isy probably doesn't support to achieve that ability. 

You may be able to achieve something similar using programs if the isy can receive the sensor information.

Ecobee uses it's cloud servers to talk to it's thermostats. From my experience, it's been rock solid from the start without issues

The Honeywell T9 wifi thermostat supports up to 20 redlink wireless indoor temperature/humidity/motion sensors. You would need to use the Honeywell Home node server to have connectivity to the ISY. Both the T9 and the remote sensors will appear in the ISY if you use the Honeywell Home node server. Connectivity does require use of the Honeywell Home cloud server. While I am not using a T9 in my home, I am using a T10 Pro wifi with the Honeywell Home node server. It is all working well with no issues.
