  • Why would I want to use BLStat?

    Just wondering - if Z-wave thermostats are natively support by HS3, what are the reasons for using this plugin?

    It is invaluable for me, but I have a number of heating zones, each with its own thermostat. I use BLStat to load different schedules based on work/vacation, work schedule, occupancy, holidays, outside temperature, etc. It is also useful to force the thermostats back to defined temperatures after a defined period of override. We have the thermostats limited to 120 minutes on an override, after which they return to the program.

      Ok Randy... so if you only have one stat (Single zone), then perhaps it has limited value.
      I control my stat via events including scheduled events and alarm panel settings as well. I'm still not sure why this would be benefit to me.
      I don't mean to knock this plugin - more of an interest...
