following the discussion in this old thread
, I would like to introduce the Telegea Smart Thermostat.
A long time has passed and after Nest a lot more Smart Thermostats have popped up on the market: Tado, Netatmo, Momit, Ecobee, Thermosmart, Lyric, to name just a few. But there doesn't seem to be a lot of choice when it comes to a Smart Thermostat which is completely open source and can be customized to personal needs.
That's why the Telegea project
started to develop a Smart Thermostat based on the open source Telegea platform
. It can be used with readily available "off the shelf" components and is of course based on the RaspberryPi.
We have just released a new SD card image
which should make it easy to get started with the Telegea Smart Thermostat. There is also a guide
which explains the few steps to set up the system.
A simple setup to control the temperature of one zone with a local display and the Smartphone app could look like this.
For a more professional setup we have developed the Telegea Smart Hub
, which is a custom hardware based on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module. It can also be used to run the Smart Thermostat software, controlled by Smartphone app and a dedicated touch display based on the official RPi 7'' touch screen. The Smart Hub is usually mounted in a DIN rail cabinet together with the relay card.
Please let me know if you have some feedback, comments, suggestions. Of course, it would be great if you want to contribute directly to this project as a developer, tester or user.
