help with multi zone heating.
Hello guys, hoping you could give me some advice.
Just ordered my zipatile from vesternet and I am about to order some z wave modules.
I would like to control a five zone heating manifold with the system and as far as I can work out this should work:
1, Zipatile as main lounge thermostat
2, A fibaro Universal binary sensor with 4 x 1-wire temperature sensors each located in an empty thermostat enclosure in each of the other 4 zones.
3, Set up the 4 x 1-wire sensors to work as virtual thermostats.
4, Use 5 z wave relays to activate the valves on the manifold.
That way I think that the thermostat on the zipatile will call for heat in the main room and the other four virtual thermostats will call for heat in the other 4 zones using the 1-wire sensors as thermostats with each zone/thermostat activating its relative relay on the valves.
Does that sound like a sensible idea?
Any other ideas and advice would be appreciated.
