Underfloor Heating via Z-wave ?
« on: February 11, 2014, 08:39:50 pm »
Hello,

Does anybody know how if is possible to control an underfloor heating by using a z- wave  network. Is about a house with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and one livingroom (aprox. 100 sqm) . I was thinking to use as temperature sensor (DS18B20 ) for each room, Z-Wave Universal Binary Sensor to "send" the inputs of the temp. sensors to the controller (Core-Linux MCE). On the controller will give the signal on/off to an electro-valves (using Danfoss Living Connect).
    Please let me know if this is a good solution or if you know one better...
Thank you in advance .

My take on this is very un-automational ;) - imho one sets the temperature you want ONCE in the thermostate. After that, the thermostate takes care of the rest.
