    I use TZ16 thermostats (3 of them) for many years, they work perfectly. https://www.rcstechnology.com/products/

    I use it with the HS z-wave stick. The 'higher-end' versions of the Trane thermostat do not work with the z-wave stick, as far as I know.

    Thanks.

In addition, I wanted the thermostat to be z-wave. That limited me to the Trane 624 thermostat. It works quite well despite HAVC people rolling their eyes about me moving the thermostat into the garage/closet.

    What Thermostats Work Well with HS?

    I am trying to find a thermostat that works well with HS. I am on HS4 but a compatible PI from HS3 would also work if it works with a late model thermostat. Z-wave and/or WIFI preferred since Zigbee could be an issue.

    If you have one that has a good track record please tell me which one and what plugin it uses and how you like it. Thanks
Working...
