When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Alexa plugs controlled by a thermostat
« on: March 09, 2019, 11:19:13 am »
Hi, I have just installed infrared heating panels which I am controlling with Alexa plugs.  I want to control them via a thermostat, rather than just having them on or off.  Does anyone know if there is one on the market?

Thanks

Andy

I have not done this myself, but I think it can be done with a mix of Smartthings, a Zwave temperature sensor, and IFTTT recipe.

Absolutely can be done with Smartthings.  Amazon is trying to capture some of the smart home market even though they don't have many actual programming options.  You can turn things on and off but beyond that its very limited.

There are several Alexa,Google compatible thermostats available I'm sure one of them would work for you .
