Dual Fuel - Wi Fi thermostat

I am looking for a wi-fi thermostat for a vacation home. The home has a dual fuel system. Found one at Home Depot but it does not have a means to register the outdoor temp. Any recommendations?

No, that one don't have the outdoor sensor. I am not aware off hand of others as of now since the WiFi is pretty new for the t-stat area.

I'll do some more digging if I can find something for ya.

I suggest passing on the Filtrete 3M50 for this and look into purchasing a Bayweb www-Bayweb.com , Proliphix - Proliphix wired Ethernet thermostat or an Ecobee WIFI thermostat . I suggest contacting each company and explain your application to them in detail.

These thermosatats cost significantly more that the Filtrete 3M50 but are well established products and would be more appropriate for a situation like yours (reliability is crucial).


(My preference would be a Proliphix wired unit because of its direct access capability and there is one less potential point of failure using a wired Ethernet connection.)
