Thanks, ***** ***** a somewhat lengthy explanation:
Apparently there are boilers' control solutions that connect / disconnect the heating element to the Mains, based on temperature measurement that probably feeds a built-in thermostat that limits maximum level, and is also sent via hard-wire to a remote unit which displays the water temperature and enables on/off actuation, most probably via a relay residing in the boiler's circuitry (DPST or DPDT) - is that correct?
My intent is to use my own long range wireless link, replacing hard-wire connectivity by interfacing my wireless module with the temperature reading coming from the thermostat, as well as with the remote actuation that is going to the Relay.
I have found on the web a 'dumb' thermostat that has no relay nor temperature reading output (like APCOM products); I am seeking a smarter component as described above, to be used mainly for electric boilers remote reading and control, but possibly also for other types as well.
