  • Thank you. I do appreciate your reply. I appreciate the accuracy however it's just a little too precise for me. 😊

    I think you are the first person to take issue with it, but I will bring it up to Rich on Monday to see what he thinks of it.

    • What thermostats are capable of being set in .1 degree increments. Mine (Trane) is certainly not.

        For whatever reason StelPro thermostats can be. I think it's a Canadian or Euro thing as StelPro is a Canadian company. But they make a great Z-Wave thermostat for Baseboard heaters.

          Oh, where oh where to leave this reply? Here on a year-old thread, where it's very apropos, or on a new thread? Maybe I'll do both.

          {ahem} This is still a problem with my Alexa + Insteon Thermostat. I say "Alexa, raise the temperature one degree" and I'll get "First Floor Hall Thermostat 1 is set to 73.4 degrees." (That name is another issue...) I would be sanguine about this, were it not for the fact that sometimes it's not set to 73 or 74, as one might think, but 72 or 71 or whatever is 1 degree higher than the previous setting. Basically she carries out the command correctly, but her confirmation is off. Back when she didn't say the decimals, she was pretty accurate. (How ironic - "precision" leads to inaccuracy!)

          Anyone got a fix? Insteon? HomeSeer? Amazon? Buehler? Buehler???

          • So this is the first seeing this post. I’m under the impression HS can use the Amazon Dots or whatever as HS Voice Control units natively not needing connected to the Amazon Cloud. Yes?

              No, all Alexa voice control is messaged from HS3 to Amazon and back.

                • macromark RJS Is there any particular reason this skill cannot be enabled for Canada? I'm only getting the runaround from your help desk.
