  • One switch to rule them all

    Hi guys,
    new to homeseer (on trial) so trying to make my way around HS3.
    I have 3 thermostat radiators (z-wave) in the room. I would like to have a single control to set the target temp on all of them to the same value (so I do not have to set all 3 independently).
    I suspect there must be various ways to do it but what would be the best way?

    Thks for helping out

    You can do it with scripting calls or with Spud's Easy Trigger plug-in. With Easy Trigger you would simply build a Virtual Device that mimics a thermostat setpoint.

    Then create an Event that is Triggered by the Virtual Device being set. When the Device is set three Actions using the Easy Trigger "Set Device to Another Device..."

    With this you could control as many thermostats as you desire with one device.
