I have just started my personal domotica project. As a first step I am mainly interested in optimizing the energy consumption by automating my heating system.
I want to be able to control each room in the house as a separate zone.
I also want to be able to write information per zone to a data store about the requested temperature, the actual temperature and if the zone was in use. This information should give met the possibility to do an analysis on how often a room is heated without use to come to a further optimization.
Therefore I have searched the internet for existing hard and software solutions.
The most affordable solutions I have found so far are:
- FHZxxxxPC + FHT80B + FHT8V + IP-Symcon
- Homematic + HM-CC-TC + HM-CC-VD + IP-Symcon
I cannot however find a clear statement whether I should take the extra cost for the homematic CCU over the more price attractive first option. Is there someone out there who can list me de pros and cons for the Homematic CCU over the FHZxxxxPC interface? What are the crucial differences I should know about to be able to choose one for the other?
Or are there other solutions I should have a look at? I already found other solutions but they mostly are much more expensive or limited in functionality or flexibility.
