    Replacement for Nest thermostat and smoke alarm suggestions

    My Nest (gen 1?) thermostat has taken control, constantly switching to away mode and I'm ready to replace it with something that works well with HS4. My Nest protect alarm is sending me "expiring" messages and needs to be replaced. Again looking for something that works well with HS4. Been trying to do research here and elsewhere, but would appreciate any suggestions/advice.


    Personally here a happy camper with my now "old" serial wired Omnistat RC1000 thermostat.

    Any glitches with HVAC here is and always has been low on the WAF and detrimental to my automation stuff using HS1, HS2, HS3 and now HS4.

    The base transport does not have any dependencies to the internet. The thermostat polling is instantaneous with the serial connection.
