Hi, I'm new to the forums and have been reading extensively to try to figure out how to do some basic HA and distributed audio in the house that I am currently building. I like the idea of integrating the HVAC system into the HA control setup. I've seen the Aprilaire 8870 stats online and they look like they would work for my HVAC setup. I'm leaning towards a 3 zone system, 1 zone for each level of my house. Does anyone know what parts exactly I would need to use the 8870s with an Elk system. I plan on eventually having something similar to CQC or ML controlling the system, but that might not be setup right away. Could I get by with just the 8870s for the 3 zones, an 8811 rs232 adapter, a 6504 4 zone panel and some transformers and dampers? Would the stats be able to connect directly to the elk M1, or would I need to interface them another way to the CQC/ML system? Thanks in advance for any help.
