NuHeat does have a thermostat that will work with Google. https://www.nuheat.com/products/thermos ... -assistant

I think that's a question that only you can answer. Like asking whether pineapple belongs on pizza.

They're similar yet different. The infloor heating thermostats use a sensor installed in the floor to determine the floor temp. They can be overridden to use air temp, or a combo of air temp and sensor temp. Realistically you could use an infloor heat thermostat to control a baseboard but it would far be more expensive than a thermostat made for a baseboard with the same functionality.

You can be as pissed off as you want, but if you didn't do your proper research before purchasing it, it's not going to make any difference. We (in here) have not way of knowing what you were told in advance, or what you were lead to believe you were purchasing.

I am sorry my post made you mad. Thanks for weighing in though I got some good advice (not yours) so it did make a lot of difference!

IMO I don't see a point of having heated floors function like that.

These thermostats have a ton of scheduling options. So you can easily set them to be on during the morning and then at night, which would be the main times you're around. I think there are 6? programable times/temps for each day, so you've got lots of options.
My bathroom floors run during the morning and night, and are hotter when we will likely be using the bathroom.
These thermostats also let you program your energy cost and tell you how much energy they use. With my "dumb" programming in my master bath (which is like 100sqft of heated floor space), its usually under $10 of energy costs for the year.
