Re: IofT

The thermostat needs just to be connected to a control unit (preferably via cable which also powers them), and then that control unit could also receive data from other sensors to perform needed actions (and share them if needed). Those thermostats could be pretty dumb (and cheap) sensors - but it looks we're going towards Sirius Cybernetics Corporation devices and their silly behaviours just because it can be done - and just because it is more difficult to slurp data from dumb devices.
