This is one of the Million Dollar Ideas. Please, take this idea, and make it a reality, so I can buy it. And if you know that this exists now, please point me to it!
You know those weather/temperature stations you can buy everywhere now? The ones with the 2, 4 or 16 remote sensors, so you can see what the temperature is outside, in your room, and in the dog house? Well, someone needs to take that technology and apply it to the thermostat.
I want my thermostat, wherever it is (inconveniently) located, to be able to access 2, 4 or 16 remote sensors about the house. Then it could be programmed to set the temperature based on the reading in our bedroom at night, the kitchen in the morning, and the baby’s room during nap time.
It seems like an easy, cheap way to approximate zoned heating.
