The market is full of wireless thermostats making this very difficult to research.
I just want to change my Danfoss FP715 central heating control to an alternative unit that I can access remotely....any solutions?
Trying to avoid the expensive Nest/Hive.

I built this a few weeks ago
My prototype looks like this.
It's more compact than the developers, because I used a pi Zero, and a
wallwart PSU instead of accomodating it in the case.
It uses a web browser interface.
You can change the room temp setpoint and alter the on off shedule
remotly. If I had designed it the DHW channel would be identical to
the CH with its own 1-wire sensor on the HW cylinder, as it stands I
can't fathom out the software to make changes.
Total cost to build, less than £10, that pissed off some Hive owners I
Quite. But probably wouldn't help with my boiler which is already
It does have a buss to allow connection to extra zone controllers which
can also switch the heating and hot water to standby, though. Or alter the
on/off times and so on. But no idea if that uses a standard protocol.
