  • RCS makes Therms and Remote Sensors for Trane

    I've got two RCS TZ45 Z-Wave thermostats in route. It supports up to two indoor remote z-wave sensors (not the 2-wire). Their designation for the remote is RTH100Z. One benefit is that the sensor can override the thermostat OR the thermostat can AVERAGE the two readings to decide what to do. I also suspect I can use HomeTroller to use the Sensor during the evening when that end of my house is prone to hotter and stuffier air, being on the west side and not protected by immense oak trees.
    ANYWAY, i've searched the world over and no joy finding a source for the RTH100Z. I wrote to RCS and they responded quickly and with useful information. I really have liked their support over the last 22 years. What they wrote back was: "Currently, the RTH100Z is only being manufactured, as an OEM product, for TRANE. You might be able to source one thru their Distribution network. Plans are for putting in (general) Distribution later this year."
    Has anyone seen these z-wave remote Trane sensors anywhere for purchase?

    Checkout the TH100NX as it looks to be the same device. Don't know how well it works with HomeSeer.

      Based on the disclaimer on that page, it won't connect/override the existing thermostat, but it can signal to homeseer. Homeseer, if it works like Stargate, could be set up with a set of parameters to respond to that would signal the existing thermostat to change perhaps?
