Has anyone been able to connect a nest thermostat to their Englander Smartstove board? I would like to start my stove before I get to the cabin so we essentially walk into a warm cabin.

I called Englander but of course they said it’s not possible to do.

I see where you can take the jumper out and connect the thermostat to the board. Can I just run 2 wire thermostat wire to the Nest stat?

Does manual mode still work with the jumper being out ?

Any help is appreciated

From what i read in the manual, it looks like thier reason it wont work is it requires user input to initiate start (physically push the on button) in either mode. If you could figure out a way to automate that i bet the nest would work

I’m working on a way to simulate the push of the button now. Do you have the same type of issue as I do? It seems that there are some WiFi enabled plugs by Lutron that will allow the stove to come on via an app. If that’s the case I won’t need the Nest because the stove takes the same setting it had when it was shut down.
