The ever inventive, Alper Üzmezier, BASSG, LLC, introduced us to a very cool thermostat at Haystack connect. This is more than your average commercial thermostat. With a port on the back of the thermostat, you can control your Dali Lighting ballast directly from this thermostat, you can add remote I/O and get data from the thermostat via modes on BACnet MS/TP.
