Upgrading wireless thermostat

I have a Trane furnace equipped with a Honeywell th6320r1004 thatís wireless. It appears as though thereís a wireless transmitter on the furnace that communicates with the thermostat. Iím looking to upgrade to a smart thermostat such as Nest and Iím curious how I would get all this to work if I donít have an actual wired thermostat? Any suggestions on which one to get? Would I maybe be best getting another Honeywell? Thanks!

The thermostat is the wireless transmitter and the receiver is at the furnace. You may be able to expand on that but we'd need a thermostat model number. Most thermostats are easily removable from the base and the model number is on the back.

You can add the Redlink Internet gateway to that system.

Yes, they would need to be hard wired.

Both of those options offer a wireless sensor.
