I am very beginner in Home Assistant and home automation in general but I would like to give a try.
My idea is to go with Bosch SHC (Bosch SHC - Home Assistant) and one of the wall thermostats (Smart and Wireless Room Thermostat | Bosch Smart Home).
What I am not fully aligned on is the concept of “Sensor” in Home Assistant.
If I get it right, Home Assistant recognizes temperature from the thermostat and internally it is represented as Sensor object. However I am not sure if Sensor is read-only or it actually can be set and one can change desired temperature and so on. I am not sure if I missed it somewhere in the manual but I could not understand this basic stuff, especially in regards to Bosch HSC.
In the end of the day, I would like to make sure that I will be able to operate the Bosch thermostats from Home Assistant before I commit and go buy the Bosch devices.
