This document introduces the Clare Controls integration with the Aprilaire 8800 thermostat.
By integrating the Aprilaire 8800 thermostat to a ClareHome control system, your customers can send commands to the thermostat to change modes, cool and heat settings, and fan status from their mobile devices, like iPhones or iPads. To adjust temperature and humidity settings, they can simply turn the scroll wheel to the right or left on their ClareHome display.
Note: When integrating the Aprilaire Model 8800 thermostat into your ClareHome project, use the Model 8811 protocol adapter to convert an RS-485 communication signal to an RS-232 signal that is readable by a host computer’s serial port. If you are adding multiple 8800 thermostats to your project, you will also need to install the Model 8819 distribution panel. This panel allows you to wire up to eight thermostats and the thermostat communication can be turned on and off by location.
