    tstat

    I've listed this thread in the control section of the wall, but decided to put it in the main part too in case someone has an idea. I'm looking for a limited range tstat for a multi family application. Every simple single stage stat that I find has a max of 90 degrees, like someone needs to have their house that hot. The old T822D1719 had a max of 72, but since the end of mercury that is no longer available.

    I don't want to use a digital stat with lockout since I can see a frustrated tenant putting a knife through it. I looked at Honeywell and white rogers, no luck. Western Control has one I'm looking at now, though I have no experience with them and not even sure where to get it.

    Any ideas?

    !

    Use a Honeywell VISIONPro 8000 with a remote sensor in the apartment. If "knifed," they're only about $30.

    I left out one thing. The tstat wires don't go to the basement which is where I'd have to put the stats. They just go to a Taco ZV in the apartment. To go the remote route I'd have to pull new wires which adds to the expense which the landlord would rather not pay (shocker). This leaves me with the options of a cheap low range or an expensive 8000. Rather find the cheap one.

    why not try the wireless thermostats. I believe honeywell makes system that might work for you. I know the company i work for has 1 in service for normal stats and works great.

    Stat

    Carrier makes a radio controlled remote stat. They work well.

    Just had a thought

    If you get the Honeywell Focus Pro 5000 T-stats they can be programmed in the installers menu so that the setting cannot be set above a predetermined temperature, such as 68*. The FocusPro can also be configured for heating only so you don't have the "cool" and "fan" functions showing.

    If you choose these stats double check them out of the box as the temp limit feature did not come with the first generation of FocusPro's.

    Second that.

    I use the VisionPro 8000 as well. You can lock out the screen and set temp. limits hi and low.

    Love them.

    people are savy today

    Just remember
    Unless you use a remote stat or one that requires a code, anyone can go online and get the intructions to reprogram it.

    wireless

    Be careful, wireless systems have problems in buildings that have alot of concrete with rebarb. Also buildings that have cell phone comm. equip. on roof.
