Ice Castle Thermostat

6 posts in this topic

Hey-

I am going to upgrade to a digital thermostat, instead of the in accurate factory thermostat. Before I purchase one, I was curious if there is a way to start the furnace in the fish house via a smart phone and a certain thermostat? I'm really not for sure if there is, but I figured this would be a good place to ask. I just think it would be nice to be able to have the fish house warm by the time I get to the lake, if not no big deal!

 

Thanks!

I looked into this a few years back because it would be slick but you would need Internet or some kind of cell plan for it to work.

A lot of the digital thermostats are programmable so you could set it to come on at a certain time on the weekends

After looking a little more on the internet, I found something. But it includes a monthly fee, and I'm not about to pay a monthly fee for this. But it shows me that it is possible. Go ahead and take a look if youd like. Wish it could be done thru smartphone without internet access.

After doing a little more research, I found something that seems like it may work in this situation. It is a GSM relay control. It activates by phone call or text message, just needs 12 volt power supply. It seems after the upfront cost of the device, I would just have to buy a prepaid SIM card so it gets a phone number to call. I don't know if I am going to do this, but just wanted to share what I have found so far.

Sounds like a great idea. Can you repost a link that is working please so I can check it out?
