Technology has been evolving in all sectors rendering some systems obsolete, HVAC systems are no exception.
How did T1100RF Operate?
Up to 4 wireless thermostats could be placed anywhere in the home to allow for temperature control from different regions. This was then transmitted to the receiver which was installed in the same location as the thermostat it replaced. Configuration parameters were taken from the transmitter with ID number 1. Transmitters with Unit ID Numbers 2, 3, and 4 could not be programmed or configured (except for set points). The thermostats with a range of up to 500 feet transmitted radio signals back to the receiver with the last used (button pressed) being implemented.
The best bet for the replacement is the use of a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat (assuming it isn't located in a non-friendly temperature/moisture environment), a smartphone to adjust setpoints, and a Wi-Fi remote sensor to sense control temperature from a suitable location. This implementation is more advanced and affordable.
Explorer Residential Programmable Thermostat stands in place of the receiver, wireless sensors replacing the portable thermostats. This thermostat can be connected through the Skyport App available in the App Store
and Google Playstore
is only an alternative implementation that can work in place of the T1100RF but the two thermostats are not exactly the same.
Through the app, Venstar ACC-TSENWIFIPRO
wireless remote sensors placed in a location of choice/ different rooms can be paired with the thermostat to detect temperature. The Venstar Configurator App is needed to configure the Wi-Fi Settings of this thermostat.
All runtime data is available on the app including alerts and notifications.
