Multi zone, rads and ufh design
Hi all, I have a few design questions:
I have 8 rooms, 3 zone valves (+ hot water valve), due to constrains all zones need wireless temperature control.
zone valve 1 = 4 rooms / 4 rads
zone valve 2 = 3 rooms / 3 rads
zone valve 3 = 1 room / 1 ufh
As far as I can work out i need the following:
z1 (+ hw) = Wireless Smart Thermostat, Wireless Receiver, Internet Bridge, 4 Smart Radiator Thermostats - all in one zone with wireless receiver as the zone controller
z2 = Wired Smart Thermostat, 3 Smart Radiator Thermostats - all in one zone with wired receiver as the zone controller
z3 = Wired Smart Thermostat - in one zone with wired receiver as the zone controller
Assuming the above is correct, my question - I need to place the wired smart thermostats for z2 and z3 in cupboards so I cant use them as thermostats (just zone valve switches), in this case can I:
- In z2 use the Smart Radiator Thermostats to measure temperature in the rooms and totally override the temp of the wired smart thermostat?
- And in z3, how do I override the temp of the wired smart thermostat and use a wireless thermostat? This is alluded to in this article https://savvycons.nl/en/blogs/blog/tado-en-vloerverwarming at the bottom it says in option 3 - "an extra thermostat to control your underfloor heating valve, this will be mounted at the distributor, but it does not measure the temperature here, that is what the other (current) thermostat is for" but I can't work out what this means???
Anyone know about this setup? Thanks
