Provide the ability to use the Room Sensor(s) as the primary sensor or within a primary sensor group and treat the thermostat as an excludable sensor

Temperature Control with reading of remote sensor only

Would be desirable to be able to install the Wyze Thermostat anywhere in the house, even at places where no temperature control is wanted. In order to do that, the Wyze Thermostat needs to work with a Wyze remote sensor but not average the temperature signals. Instead, use only the remote temperature for control.

This is super needed. I used the nest to do this all the time and was hoping the wyze would expand on that not have even more limited options.

It would be great to set a full schedule (set by hour not pre defined ranges) and determine which sensor to follow.

The whole reason I got them was that my son’s room is generally colder at night and wanted to make sure his room was ok regardless of the others

I would add Include more than one room sensor as primary
I would love the option to be able to include more than one room sensor as primary. Let it do average.
i.e. I have 3 rooms for my 3 babies, each has it’s own room sensor. At night I would like for the HVAC to monitor all 3 of those rooms. But at the same time ignoring other room sensors I have i.e. master-bedroom and living-room.

I cannot install the Wyze Thermostat in my bedroom because there are only two wires connected to the existing thermostat in the bedroom. There is no c-wire. It would be prohibitively costly to install a c-wire from the bedroom to the boiler zone switching relay.

If I could use a Room Sensor as the primary sensor, then I could install the Wyze Thermostat in the boiler room where it would be simple to connect it to the zone switching relay with three wires, including a c-wire. Then I would simply install the Room Sensor in the bedroom. The functional result would be equivalent to installing the Wyze Thermostat in the bedroom.

If I have guests over to watch anything in the TV room (or dinner in the enclosed dinning room, etc…) , I should be able to control the climate in just that room, and ignore the rest of the house. But since my thermostat is in the cold part of the house, I only get an average temperature between the two locations. So I have to constantly chase the temp setting on the thermostat as to not overheat my guests.
It would be nice to be able to open the app, select a specific sensor, and hold the temperature on that sensor and ignore the rest of the house.

Room sensor temperature control for thermostat.

Hello, I wish for the room sensor temperature to be the primary used by the thermostat. I have a sensor in the bedroom and the thermo in the hallway. I don’t care about the temperature in the hallway. So averaging the two doesn’t work. The temperature reading is accurate so overriding the thermo temp doesn’t work either.

Glad I wasn’t the only one with this problem. I just switched from Ecobee and I was able to set one specific room (master bedroom) as the temperature preference during sleep mode. I cannot do this with my Wyze thermostat which is located downstairs and always significantly colder than my master bedroom. Please Wyze, add the ability to exclude the main thermostat in the overall comfort calculation.

I agree. We need the ability to use a room sensor as the primary.

My thermostat is really poorly located, on an outside wall that gets full sun in late afternoon when we’re supposed to minimize electrical usage. I can “correct” this in the daytime, but then it’s going to overcool at night unless I remember to change it after the outside temperature drops. Which means I’ll have to go deep into the menus twice a day instead of just letting the Wyze thermostat and sensors do their job on a schedule.

So I need to be able to use only the room sensor.

Is there any update on whether this will be made available as a feature or not? I just installed the thermostat and room sensors, and I was very disappointed to fine that excluding the thermostat temp reading is not an option. That is basic functionality when you have room sensors as part of a system. I need to know from Wyze if this is in the works or not? It is a make or break feature for me. If you do not plan on adding this functionality, I will likely be getting rid of this thermostat and the room sensors.

FYI, it looks like this isn’t going to happen. I asked about this in the recent AMA and thought some of you would like an update:

Oh, great. The one feature such a product should have, and nope, not gonna happen.
