I have an Amazon Echo hub... I've contacted hive and nest, but they won't answer this question since it is outside normal operation of their heating control systems. hastelloy 08:25 31 Aug 2018 Is this what you mean Active plug? Dumdoc 09:21 31 Aug 2018 Yes. I’m not sure if that particular one is Wi-Fi or z wave, but yes, I want a thermostat that will switch one of those over Wi-Fi... hastelloy 11:42 31 Aug 2018 The Hive ones work through the router (I think it's wi-fi). There are also these Sockets but I don't know what their range is. Dumdoc 12:09 31 Aug 2018 The socket is not the problem - I have those already, and a Wi-Fi hub in the form of amazon echo. The problem is finding a thermostat that will communicate with the socket... Dumdoc 19:35 31 Aug 2018 Yes IFTTT is a possible solution that I hadn’t though of.. thanks! compumac 20:27 31 Aug 2018 Spam???

I stand corrected, albeit I understand that Victoria did make the observation. This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
