    Default temperature sensor probes

    I'd like to find some temperature sensor probes to make the sensor pockets in a heat bank Z-Wave connected. The idea being to use the 'scenes' in VERA to activate pumps, heat pump, valves etc. Take a solar controller as another example.. can't see why I'd need to buy one when Vera could do all the tricks given suitable probes.

    Fibaro has the universal sensor module and also the door sensor module, both can be connected to a thermistor. I have tried the universal sensor with a thermistor connected 15 meters away using a CAT6 cable, works great!

    Thank you for the reply - and I like your web-site too. I'll check out the Fibaro universal sensor + thermistor. It seems that the way one thinks has to be very flexible these days. I was looking into programmable logic controllers to control an advanced heat-bank based heating system but even that looks out of date when a home automation controller can do scenes with many inputs and outputs.
