I saw a couple of old threads on the CPS offered free digital thermostat. It
looks like it is remote controllable by CPS via two way pager control w/web
integration (on their side).. Not a huge fan of this.. would have preferred a
home broadband connection that I could control.. but whatever.
Does anyone have any info on how controllable these things are? It's designed
to allow CPS to help regulate peak load distribution so that they can do some
sort of time division smoothing of everyone's AC loads. Interesting idea..
but I would like to maintain override control if need be. Any protocol or
wired-hack info also of interest, integration with any linux home automation
systems (like Zoneminder, MisterHouse, etc). I think it's this model:
NEway.. lemme know if anyone has really dug into one of these before.
