What is the Best Z-Wave Thermostat?

The best Z-Wave thermostat is the Honeywell T6 Z-Wave Thermostat. We consider the T6 to be the best smart thermostat on the market today. This is due to its simple installation process and easy-to-navigate menus. As a result, the Honeywell T6 is the perfect smart thermostat for DIY users.

One of the main draws to the Honeywell T6 is its ability to operate without receiving common power from a C-wire. Instead, the device can operate using battery power only. However, if the device is running strictly on battery power, then other Z-Wave devices will not be able "hop" through the T6 Thermostat as part of the mesh network. This can be important to remember when planning a Z-Wave network.

By not having to connect with a C-wire, the T6 thermostat is much easier and safer for DIY users to install. The installer won't have to worry about connecting any electrical wires, and they will only have to provide a basic wire connection from the HVAC unit to the thermostat. The device will simply replace the existing thermostat on the wall, and the included mounting equipment helps facilitate a clean installation.

As far as performance goes, the T6 Thermostat is second-to-none. It offers simple interface, and its menus are easy to navigate. Users won't feel intimidated by its easy to understand layout. And as a Z-Wave device, the T6 can be integrated with smart scenes so that it activate automatically based on a set schedule or with predetermined system events.

And contrary to popular belief, the T6 does not have to be used with a Honeywell System. It can be used with virtually any Z-Wave controller, including alarm systems like the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 and 2GIG GC3. Even though the T6 is manufactured by Honeywell, it can still be used with the Alarm.com service if that's what the alarm system uses.

Thank you!
The Lyric round actually can pair with Total Connect "directly" since it's not a Z-Wave thermostat. Here is the enrollment guide so you can see how it's done: https://www.alarmgrid.com/documents/lyric-thermostat-total-connect-2-dot-0-enrollment-guide
Can you hook up a Lyric round thermostat to VAM to use in the total connect app?
OK, I am interested in the Z-wave thermostats and I am going to use the TotalConnect 2.0 app. I have 3 thermostats in the house. I see Zwave thermostats a lot cheaper than the Honeywell ones. I was wondering what their compatibility would be. I like the CT100. We don't really utilize the scheduling function. But I would like to be able to control the temp from work or warm my detached workshop up w/o having to go outside
Also, Honeywell just began to integrate Honeywell WIFI thermostats that support the TC comfort app. Z-Wave thermostats are still the only ones that speak directly to the L7000 and offer control from the keypad. However, now the Honeywell WIFI thermostats are compatible with the Total Connect 2.0 app. This means you can integrate control of your WIFI thermostats with your security and automation devices. Currently, this integration is limited to iOS devices in order to link the TC comfort thermostats to your TC 2.0 account. Feel free to email us at support@alarmgrid.com for more details.
Most Z-Wave thermostats should be compatible. Honeywell lists the ZWSTAT, Wayne Dalton, Trane, Residential Control Systems (Mode TZ45), Intermatic InTouch (Model CA8900), Radio Thermostat Company of America (Model CT30, CT32 and CT100) and Remotec Z-Extender ZXT-120 Z-Wave to AC IR Extender as all being compatible and others may work as well.
Is the TH8320ZW1000 ZWSTAT the only Z-wave thermostat compatible with the L7000 panel? Or can I use another Z-wave thermostat
The ZWSTAT does work with the L5000 if you use the 5800ZBRIDGE. You can check the manuals for the ZWSTAT at https://www.alarmgrid.com/documents/products/honeywell-zwstat to determine if it will work with your heating/cooling system.
how do you know that it will work with an L5000 system? How do I know that it will work with a Lennox system (heat pump with propane furnace backup)?
