    yes but can you have four instances of the plug in within HS (i.e each plug in opens a diferrent COM port)

    one instance of the plug-in can support multple tstats as each stat is setup with a different address.

    regarding the power booster, my undstanding is this is needed for very long runs. can't remember the specs though

    16 RC-80 Thermostats- 2 simple questions.


    I have 16 RC thermostats in my house and consdering re-using HS but having
    two questions:


    -I cannot locate the RC-202 signal booster recommended by HAI..I know I saw it on the web a few years back, was 200$! Any ways around it? Any substitutes?


    -Could I instead install FOUR RS-232 segments (via a usb to 4 serial port) each segment supporting 4 thermostats. If so does HS support FOUR instances of the HAI-Termostat Plug-In. I have seen this wiring recommended on the web by OneHome for such a setup.


    thanks in advance...last time I played with HS was 3 years ago and I realize now that the plug-in is more advanced...I kow I had given up at the time.

Working...
