Home Intelligent Management System Thermostat

I’ve decided one of my next projects to integrate into the HIMS will be a thermostat. I’ve started investigating the hardware that will be required. I’m leaning towards a touchscreen display for visualization and basic control while the primary configuration is done via HIMS in a web browser. There’s 24V AC available at my existing thermostat to work with so I may try to power the whole thing from that or run a separate 120V AC power source to the thermostat location. I’ve purchased some surface mount relays for signaling the unit to run and will be experimenting with those once they arrive. The hardest part will be finding a “cool” case to mount everything inside of. More to come on this as things progress.
