Android application for my Thermostat

Postby Daniaq » Sun Feb 23, 2014 12:26 pm

I am working on an android application for my thermostat. I have ordered a z-wave USB adapter to interface with my thermostat. I want to know how can I communicate with my thermostat through the android application?

The only way is to have an intermediate program running on your PC that communicates to Zwave.

Android -> WIFI -> PC -> Zwave -> Thermostat

You can't do

Android -> Thermostat unless your Thermostat is WIFI enabled and has an API like the Nest.

HEre is a program that does this already with Zwave...
