Using Wired Stat Wirelessly

Options

I'm thinking of adding another room stat to my set up. I could obviously use a wireless sensor, but does anyone happen to know whether the wired room stat, when not used as the zone controller (but merely as a sensor with the zone controller being the existing wireless receiver), still 'relay clicks' on and off, or is it silent? Cheers

    I have both including a wired used as a zone controller and I have never heard it click - sorry!

    Thanks @samd. Is the wired stat connected wirelessly or hard wired?

    @DM932 It is hard wired.

    Thanks again @samd. So you don’t think the wired audibly clicks? Is that the device switching the boiler? Is it perhaps set up to modulate the boiler rather than on/off?

    My apologies! I had to go and stand next to it and activate it to hear it. It does click but about as loud as a mouse eating cheese!! Had the system years and never noticed it - sorry.

    Wired 'stats do click, however, much depends on where they are mounted. If they are mounted on a solid brick wall (or similar) they will be almost silent. If you mount to a timber stud wall, then the click can become quite audible.

    The good news is even on a stud wall, they are not very noisy, especially compared to some of the Honeywell 'stats I've tried in the past which were noisy enough to wake the dead!

    Thanks for your comments. I’ve since read here that these wired stats can be configured to work as wireless sensors - anyone know if that deactivates the onboard relay (so makes them silent like the wireless sensors)?

    The answer is no, it does not click when in wireless sensor mode.
