Is the Honeywell T6 PRO Thermostat Compatible w/ Any Z-Wave Controller?
Yes, the Honeywell T6 PRO Thermostat is compatible with any Z-Wave controller. This is assuming that you are talking about the Z-Wave version of the Honeywell T6 PRO Thermostat and not the WIFI version of the same model. Most Z-Wave Thermostats are pretty friendly in terms of compatibility.
The Honeywell T6 PRO Z-Wave Thermostat has many features that make it a great option for DIY users. For one, it can be used with receiving common power from a "C-wire". Instead, it can operate effectively on battery power alone. However, doing this will prevent other Z-Wave smart home devices from "signal hopping" through the T6 PRO. Keep this in mind when planning your Z-Wave network. End users also appreciate the neat and tidy user interface (UI) presented by the T6 PRO and its general ease of operation.
A common misconception of the Honeywell T6 PRO Z-Wave is that it has to be used with Honeywell Alarm Systems. However, that is not the case. Although the thermostat was designed with Honeywell Systems in mind, specifically the Lyric Controller, it can actually be used with virtually any Z-Wave hub. This includes systems from other manufacturers like Qolsys and 2GIG. You just need to make sure the system has a built-in Z-Wave controller.
As a Z-Wave thermostat, the Honeywell T6 PRO can interface with any interactive service platform that is used with the Z-Wave hub. If you have a Honeywell Security System, this will most likely be Total Connect 2.0. But if you have a system that uses Alarm.com, it will work with that platform instead. Both Total Connect 2.0 and Alarm.com can be accessed remotely from their respective mobile applications. The thermostat can also be included with smart scenes so that it responds automatically based on a set schedule or with certain predetermined events.
Note: If you pair the T6 Thermostat with a system that uses an interactive automation platform like TC2 or ADC, then you will no longer be able to set permanent holds locally at the thermostat.
