Morning all… so I’m planning/wanting to set-up/connect my thermostat to Vera. Now I know it will work with Nest and other thermostats but not Lennox iComfort Thermostat. The problem is my furnace is a variable speed and to fully take advantage of that feature / energy efficiency you need a thermostat the works with Lennox’s furnance that have variable speed. NEST does not, and I really want the BEST of both worlds - connecting my HVAC to my home automation but also not loosing the energy effeciency of the variable speed furnace that I paid for THOUGHTS? Anyone else have same scenario?
What is the specific make and model number of your thermostat?
Bump… Any thoughts from anyone?
Bump, interested in doing the same thing.
I have wanted this for a while there are people doing it for smartthings.
No official API documentation but several people have documented how it works.
Just did a major upgrade of my HVAC system to a Lennox fully-communicating system (meaning everything is variable speed/stage controlled by their S30 thermostat). I also would be very interested to get Vera integration with that thermostat, although I realize from a market-share perspective, it may not be at the top of the list.
The S30 does a lot on its own, including geo-fencing via their app. However, the geo-fence minimum is 2 miles. Where I live, a lot of my day-to-day out-of-house activities are well within 2 miles of my home, so the system usually won’t switch to “away” mode. If Vera supported the Lennox S30, I’d be able to leverage Vera’s geo-fencing and get a tighter perimeter to solve this issue, not to mention integrate other thermostat settings into my Vera scenes.
