Battery Operated Wireless Thermostat

Is anyone building a reliable battery operated wireless thermostat yet? I have a two wire (no C wire), heat only system. I'd prefer not to install transformers.

Not possible. All ceilings are finished. Correct, wifi. I've got cameras and sensors all over the house - all battery operated. I'm surprised that there are no battery operated wifi tstats.

The thermostat and what it controls is a little more involved than what you currently have set up on wireless.

Yes.... they make a wireless thermostat but it has an involved receiver/control box called an EIM (equipment interface module) that needs to be wired into your HVAC system. Left a link below.

Honeywell "redlink" system
