Lutron touchpro wireless Thermostat v HoneyWell RTH8580WF

Sat Dec 27, 2014 1:54 am

Since these two thermostats look identical and the Lutron Thermostat is just a Honeywell with lutron branding, will the lutron thermostat driver work with the Honeywell RTH8580WF?

No the Lutron driver will not control the thermostat. The Lutron driver has to talk to one of the Lutron controllers like the RadioRA. The Lutron controller then talks to the thermostats. All Honeywell thermostats use a api that has never be made public and without knowing the api making a driver for it is very difficult.

Look at the Venstar T5900 or T6900 thermostats. Reasonable price and we talk to the device directly and not the cloud.
