I’d appreciate some advice in relation to hardware.
I’m planning to add to my existing OpenHAB setup and need to use Homegear to control some wireless TRVs (Thermostatic Radiator Valves) and also connect to some wireless smoke alarms.
So I need my solution to work with HomeMatic smoke detector (HM-Sec-SD)
Then in relation to TRVs I have two choices (I think), the “HomeMatic Wireless Radiator Thermostat (HM-CC-RT-DN-(BoM))” or one of the various “MAX! Radiator Thermostat” devices.
My queries are two-fold:
Firstly if I want to control both HomeMatic & MAX! devices what is the best interface hardware to use (and would I need two of them).
Also in relation to the HomeMatic vs MAX! TRVs what are the pros-cons of each (I was looking at the MAX! range because they seem to be more readily available in the UK).
