  • Communication Clarification

    Hi Spud,
    It is my understanding that this plugin communicates with the thermostat through the Ecobee remote server and does not communicate directly with the thermostat. That being said, the plugin will not work without an internet connection even after initial registration. Is this true?

    Thanks

      Man...that is a bummer. Can anyone recommend a new model thermostat that will work with Homeseer but without an internet connection?

      Thanks

        Too bad they have not figured out how to directly support ZigBee like they do Z-wave. If they did, I'd be getting Centrallite Pearl Thermostat

          Aprilaire WiFi thermostats have a local API and I recently created a HS3 plugin for them: https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/th...-in-user-guide
