WiFi based temperature sensors

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I know there are Zigbee based temperature sensors (like Z2IO, etc.) that integrate with Contol4...

But I am looking for a WiFi based temperature sensor that could be integrated into Control4 for sensing the temperature and turning a fan/off via a relay.

Again Zigbee is not an option as the location is too far from the EA5 and there are no other Zigbee devices in the system - so I don't want to start adding repeaters just for this one device.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Maybe a bit of overkill - but I'm a HUGE fan of the Phillips Motion Driver. Requires the Hue Bridge (which opens the door to more Hue devices like the motion sensor I'm going to reccomend) but I think its probably one of the best drivers available.

To answer your question - on top of motion, it senses TEMPERATURE and lux. You can program off temp changes :) And the motions are cheap, small, and have excellent battery life.

Ecobee thermostat.

Use it's fan output through the proper relay based on your fan voltage.

WiFi, Free Driver, Built in relay.

I am thinking about buying a few of these sensors as they are cheap and seem to be quite reliable. Have you had any problems whilst using and where did you purchase the driver from?
