Dear fediverse: I am looking to replace my Nest thermostat to something more friendly, private (if such a thing is possibly) and compatible with Home Assistant. What would you recommend?


@gruerproof i didn't have much of a choice when I replaced my Ecobee with the iComfort S30 that was required for the variable speed heat pump I had installed a couple of years ago (control of the variable speed is apparently proprietary or difficult). That said, it does work okay with Home Assistant via the Homekit integration.

It's literally the only Homekit thing I have, but does work with HA (with some fiddling).

I wish Ecobee supported variable speed compressors.
