Wifi thermostat with 365 day customization

Hi,
I have a relatively unique situation. Want to replace my existing tstats with Wifi ones. The programming on all the ones i've seen (honeywell, nest, etc) all are based on a repeating weekly pattern.

In my situation I need to be able to customize the schedule on a day to day basis for the whole year. In other words, i'd like to program each day of the year individually, and have that repeat each year. And for each day, the ability to adjust the target temp by hour - not just "wake, leave, return, sleep"

Are there any tstats that allow that amount of customization?

thanks

From my experience, you will not find anything off the shelf that offers this.
I have developed controllers to do stuff similar, and it can be a very costly setup depending on what you are controlling (i.e multiple t-stats or controllers), and how the graphics are to work/appear.

With that all being said, will your requirement be a static setting per day, for example January 20, regardless of day of week, 8AM will be set to 68'F, Fan on circulate irregardless of January 20 being a weekend one year, weekday another?

Are you saying that you currently have residential stats that offer 365 day programming ?
That would truly be a first for me.

There are several Honeywells(7350-7351) that offer 365 day programming but they are commercial, require a computer and don't have wifi.

In looking around..... the only consumer available thermostat I saw with 365 day programming is the Ventstar.

Venstar

It will be based on date regardless of day of week.

Thanks I'll check those two out.

I bought the Venstar. Looks like the 365 day feature only applies to the ability to define "Holidays" during the year. The regular scheduling is still done on a weekly basis.
