I have a Fujitsu multizone mini-split with five heads, controlled by the default Fujitsu wired thermostats which I would like to replace by smart controllers.
Additionally, I have three zone hydronic baseboard heating controlled by Nests. I understand Puck currently cannot be integrated with Nest.
Q1: I just learned the hard way that Ecobee is not good for controlling mini-splits. However Puck's strength is that it can properly control mini-splits, making use of their technological advantages (like variable speed fans). Is that correct?
Q2: My Nests don't control cooling, so in the summer they would essentially stay inactive. In winter, the Nests would call for heat and also the Pucks. Can I set the Pucks so that they only call for heat above a certain outside temperature? I hope I don't need the more expensive Pro Edition for that.
Q3: With mini-split active at higher outside temp, the Pucks could keep the inside temperature above the temp at which a Nest would call for heat. So Nest would only become active when outside temps are really low. Is that thinking correct?
