This is one of the best applications for IoT devices and I think one of the first applications I know of. An intelligent thermostat that controls the heating in the house.
My solution is based on NETATMO Thermostat for Smartphone/NTH01
NetAtmo web based dashboard:
NetAtmo monthly report:
– is compatible with any gas heater from the market.
– it is very easy to install, no professional needed.
– has a very sleek design and the remote sensor looks very nice
– very important has full IFTTT support. Very complex automatic rules can be defined through IFTTT to try to save as much as possible for heating. For example when leaving from home automatically set the thermostat on away mode etc.
– has a nice web-based user interface with lots of statistics
– has a cloud based hysteresis algorithm that adapts the thermostat to the house parameters
