We have a pellet stove in enclosed bricked area in the basement family room.
It uses a standard mercury thermostat to turn on/off the pellet stove which is wired to the back of the stove and the thermostat is mounted next to the stove because it inside a bricked enclosed area which make it hard to wire the thermostat to the other side of the room unless we run the wire exposed along the brick wall and ceiling across the room.
I been looking to see if there was even a "switch remote" thermostat and to my surprising that it does exist.
A switch would be connected behind the pellet stove to the terminals for the thermostat and its run on battery or power adapter. The remote thermostat is like a remote control which have a wall mount that can be mounted on wall across the room with no wires. It's normally used to start gas fireplace but from what I been reading that it is also used on pellet stove or any stove using a standard off/on thermostat.
Now I am trying to find one with a zwave or zigbeee or even a wifi that will work with HE. I spend most of the night looking on the net but no luck so far. There are hundred of "wired" ones but none I could find that have a receiver to connect to the wood stove.
Here an example of a thermostat with a receiver to control the fireplace/pellet stove - https://www.amazon.com/Durablow-TR1003-Fireplace-Control-Thermostat/dp/B01N422YKD/
Is there one like this with a radio that can be controller and monitored by HE?
