Smart thermostat to trigger remote switch

  Dumdoc 17:26 29 Aug 2018

Does anyone know of a smart thermostat that will switch a smart plug over wifi? 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.

Is this what you mean Active plug?

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...

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.

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...

Yes IFTTT is a possible solution that I hadn’t though of.. thanks!

Queen Victoria:-

"Methinks thou dost protest too heartily"

Methinks you should attribute that quote to William Shakespeare (actually “The lady doth protest too much, methinks”) spoken by Queen Gertrude in Hamlet.

Methinks that you are correct.

I stand corrected, albeit I understand that Victoria did make the observation.
