Question in question: Powering home thermostat using standard four-wire connection
This is a question about building a thermostat to work with a standard home HVAC communication protocol. It was closed (IMO, incorrectly) as
This question does not appear to be about electronics design within the scope defined in the help center.
IMO, it is quite clearly a question that covers:
- a specific electronics design problem
- a communication scheme
and most certainly is not
- a shopping or buying recommendation
- consumer electronics such as media players, cell phones or smart phones, except when designing these products or modifying their electronics for other uses
- Programming software for a PC
Nonetheless, I submitted some suggested edits based on comments in the answer, to correct some factual errors that were causing confusion in the original post. Even after that, though, the only feedback from that edit and reopen request is:
Original close reason(s) were not resolved
Which doesn't make sense to me, since the original close reason didn't apply.
I left a comment on the post itself, but unfortunately nobody responded to it explaining why. What am I missing about this question that makes it inappropriate? FWIW, this is the second question I've seen closed in the past few days that was worthy of an answer -- in neither case was the reason for closure explained.
