I don’t like bluetooth: many disconnections (check amazon reviews) by me confirmed with multiple BT devices, poor range … I really don’t think is a good product for valves, unless you live in a studio of 20sqm with one radiator only
I can only see the uk reviews and there is no mention of range from here. I will probably go for bluetooth, so long as you have an properly powered bluetooth adaptor with a strong signal it shouldn’t be much of an issue.
To work with the max EQ3 wireless thermostat you would most likely need a RF 868 MHz receiver and sender as well as the bridge so you could find the frequencies to do all the different modes of operation.
With the bluetooth you only have the connecting the first time. Once that is done the setup should be finished
yes good move. I do have a couple of radiators that are in the range of my pi3 with HASS on it. I guess we can start with those, and then when we find other we change other radiators too.
Now a question more for an hydraulic technician: does it make sense to put thermostatic valve only on few radiators and not all? In this case all radiators (withouth thermostatic valve) will always be on
