    That should work for most floor heating setups as well right?

    Was thinking of adding an electrical floor mat in the bathroom down the line (want to experience first-cold-winter first), but keep line voltage well into the dry area as water and electricity just don't mix very well. Wouldn't require a massive 2kW or 4kW system for my situation, but still wanted HomeSeer control and all the options shown in this thread added up quite fast cost wise.
    That model appears to be a conventional thermostat for room heating. I don't see any mention of a temperature sensor for the floor. I see that Stelpro does have a floor thermostat, but it's not smart and costs $198! There appears to be a big conspiracy against letting an affordable Z-wave floor thermostat come to market.

      Was hoping the line compatibility would solve it, but lack of temperature sensor near floor mat that connects direct to thermostat would indeed be a no for me as well.

      https://www.sinopetech.com/us/produc...3600-w-zigbee/ looks interesting, and they also have a WiFi version planned. Thermostat is not included, but they sell a 15' one for $12 which isn't too shabby.

      Those 25% Trump tariffs suck, but I won't be considering the major remodel of the floor until next year so maybe by then political situation has sorted itself.

        I looked at the Zigbee model as well, but I can't find a Zigbee controller that could be used with HS3. I started another thread to see if spud 's plugin will work with the forthcoming WiFi model.

          There is the ConBee USB adapter, or https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GJ826F8 and there are other methods.

          I have kept to just Z-Wave, but Zigbee has a few options that are difficult to ignore (cheap sensors, etc.).

          Others with an actual Zigbee network on their HS3 setup would be better at giving you advice, but it is definitely possible.
