  1. Dear Fibaro users, On HC2 application is no problem to use on the Heating Panel the HOLIDAY MODE function ( see attached picture ). I try to find the same function in the new Yubii mobile application but I can't find that function. Can you please help that the HOLIDAY MODE is realy not available in the Yubii mobile application ? Thank you
  2. Hello everyone, As many before on this forum I'm working on my heating system and want to convert my current single room heating plan into to a multi zone heating plan. I want to integrate my boiler into my heating plan but want to create some safety interlock that I won't fire up the boiler if all the thermostats are closed. I think this is a very important feature and often overlooked as the behavior of a thermostat is to close more and more when the thermostat is reaching it's set-point to prevent overshoot. So therefore I need to know what to position is of the valve, based on that condition i went for the TRV's of eurotronic as it stated in the manual that it is able to report it's current valve position. And it looked like everything would work correct with the fibaro template as I was able to set parameter 6 and enable the valve postion reporting. I think everything is configured correctly but i have a bit of strange behavior now in fibaro when I enable parameter 6. The setpoint value is getting overwritten with the valve position percentage: Setpoint displays: new setpoint in degree Celsius After few minutes same device is overwritten and setpoint value displays Open valve percentage (unit doesn't update and stays on degree Celsius): Enabled parameter 6. When i change setpoint and debug the info. I noticed the following behavior: Setpoint change -> Setpoint value displays setpoint -> after few minutes Setpoint value displays: valve position -> Setpoint value displays setpoint value again. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong values but here is the list of the available values: I wasn't able to locate the opening valve percentage value in this list to make a virtual device as work around.. Does someone have a solution for my problem? I would like to receive the actual setpoint and the open valve percentage on a different value/device.
  3. Hello, Need to turn on / off the Bosh Gas boiler depend on my thermostats status. Using devices list: Controller: Fibaro Home center 3 Thermostats: (For water based heating. Everything is underfloor) Electrical valves (for Open, Close) Bosh GAS Boiler (we have underfloor heating by water)) Have 1 relay turn on / off How it works now: I should turn ON the GAS BOILER BOSCH manually and set the max water temperature and it works automatically. Everything looks almost good, but not very smart, because when all valves are closed, I need to close it manually. I understand that this action will be done by my boiler, but it takes a long delay to do it and it's not healthy for a boiler when valves for underfloor heating are closed. When I change the thermostat temperature it open or close the valve depend of the temperature in the thermostats and boiler should start heating again. The main problem The main problem is, when all valves are closed, I need to stop heating the Bosh Boiler. I can do it by disconnecting 2 wires in the boiler (photo attached) this case can be done using a relay. I guess that I need to build a scene that retrieves data from thermostats and depends on it what do to - turn the heating on or off (using a relay). Problem is that I don't understand params in thermostats what does it mean. -- I think that I should based on Thermostat mod, but what is the differences between HEAT, Energy Heating, Away?? Like I have said before, need to turn on the relay when my thermostats say need heating! Thanks for advices. I got 7 thermostats for different rooms temperatures
  4. Hello, I need a help. I can see more ways od forum and marketplace for override heating zone, but they are to complicated for me. I need simple scene (or virtual device??) which will set all heating zones to specific temperature for specific time and after that back to schedule. Why I need this? I have central heating system with wood and water acumulation puffer. Sometimes temperature in system increase to high and for security reasons I need to cool down system. I made scene which control temperature in system and send me notification when temperature is too high. Notification ask me if I want to run some scene. Here I want to open all radiators. Or, if somebody have another idea, maybe I don't need override heating zone. I have Fibaro heat controller on all radiators, but I don't know how to open it to max with scene. Thank you in advance.

    Heating VD, which I use especially when I go on winter holidays. On the day of departure we have no time to adjust heating, so a few days before using this VD I set the date/time when the heating should be turned off and date/time when it should be turned on again. Of course you can use this VD everyday just to turn on/off heating or to set the heating timer on/off. When it turn off the heating it just turn on vacation mode for every zone. Features: instant turn on/off the heating in all zones set the date and time when the heating will be turned off and/or turned on _ - change on/off setting time ❌ - clear timer ♻️ - refresh button - you don't need to touch it. It's called programmatically displaying the current state (on/off) sending push messages about changing heating state (by scheduler) Customization: change the VD labels to your own language set mobile device id to get push messages about changing heating state -- USER MODIFICATION local pushDeviceId = 0 -- mobile device id to send push messages local scheduleFreq = 1 -- [min] -- END OF USER MODIFICATION Screenshot: Icon: Enjoy...
  6. Hi everyone, is there any way how to obtain (access) information from HC2 heating schedules in LUA scripts? I need to work with information about what temperature and when it is going to be set in some particular rooms. I can workaround this by making heating schedules sort of static and completely overpass heating panel in HC2, but that would be a bit contra productive, right? Thanks Edit: BTW my first post here, so please be gentle
  7. Hi Apologies if this is in the wrong topic. I am hoping that someone may be able to point me in the right direction. Whst I'm not a novice, I'm certainly no expert with Fibaro having set my last house up. However in my new house I'm going to give the Heat Controller a try and I've failed at the first hurdle. Initially I have a heat controller to replace my TRV on the radiators and I want to use my old spare FGS 211 relay at the boiler. Can anyone help me with the wiring into the relay please. I'm going to be disconnecting my wireless receiver and replacing it with the relay. I'm unsure where the 2 cables that call for heat connect to on the relay. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hello, is there a way to set different temperature for each room (radiator thermostat) within one zone in heating panel? I already have two zones, ground floor and upper floor, each of them containing few rooms. I wouldn't like to create more zones as it is not very comfortable to make changes or set manual mode for each zone in case I stay working from home or something. The idea is, that the zone would only define time and higher or lower temperature based on presence at home while temperature would be room-specific. Maybe there I could create more zones with different temperatures and place them to some sort of master zone that would control them? Many thanks for any idea. PS I've got the Fibaro HCL Martin
  9. Hello First steps in HCL I have the need to activate and deactivate a thermostat, Active 1 week to apply the planing of the heating panel the next week or deactivate the device or change the thermostat's planning, so that it does not turn on. Virtua l Device? VAriables? Any contribution will be well received. Many thanks
  10. Hi everybody, I'm trying to create a program with a SRT321. Quite simple program, when the desired temperature is higher then the actual temperature, then a relay module should switch to "on" however, when loading the SRT 321 into the HC2 it shows all three values, actual, setpoint and base. When programming, there is only the actual value available! I need to make a comparisment between the set value and the actual value and with only one value this is very hard to do. Does anybody have any experience or suggestions how to handle this problem? Thanx in advance.
  11. When I open the app on my phone or tablet and go to a room i only can set the heating set point but not the cooling set point. I have 7 rooms set up with each room having a cooling and heating panel is the cooling option only available via the desktop site?
  12. Hello fellow Automaters, I have a problem with a brand new ZXT-120 from Remotec that should control my LG AC unit. Before I found this device I had it set up with a dry contact from LG and a relay switch from Fibaro. It was only allowing me to turn the AC on or off to the state chosen by remote. It wasn't that bad but was also giving me many issues. Switching dry contact mode was disabling LG remote at all - so when time of the year was changing and I wanted to switch from heating to cooling it was very annoying to go through the process - especially that it wasnt very intuitive and required turning the POWER of the device off (which meant disabling electrcity at all in my apartment) But to the point: I have just received my new ZXT-120 from Remotec. The device HW version (found on the sticker) is 1.80. It is working in FLiRS battery mode. When I add it to my HC2 though (4.161Beta) it is being discovered as a version 1.20. I got 4 devices discovered (as per attached pic) and i can communicate with it. Version 1.20 codes only support 4 different codes for LG ACs (parameter 27), while version 1.80 supports 8 or 9 different codes. For me - only the 4 old codes are available from within HC2 parameter 27 (the max value set there is 512, while 1.80 new parameter codes exceed value of 512). The 1.20 old codes do not support some of my AC functions like FAN, and FAN Speeds. I am not sure that it also sends correct commands to my AC unit. I have tried to remove/add it 6 times already. Also With Wide Network Inclusion mode and without it. The standard troubleshooting I did included adding within 10 cm from HC2 and from normal location. It just discovers it as a version 1.20 and there is nothing I can do to change the required parameters. Version 1.80 has also additional code that is below 512 (464 - squared in the pic) but also not available for version 1.20 Has anybody faced that issue? Can you guys help please?
  13. Hi people, who knows about things, I'm quite new in HC2 so might this is reason but I don't understand the logic of dashboard. I have home with 10+ rooms, regulated heating with temp-switch pairs (smoke detector + smart plug or single relay = connected device) and 2 bath-ruums with "real termostates". To monitor overview of climate system I find that Dashboard - Climate - Heating is good for overview but - only my batchrooms appear there. All rest isn't here visible. On mobiile app - all "heated" rooms (together 13 rooms) all are listed on climate view. My question - why heated rooms aren't listed on Dashboard? With bests Henn Sarv
  14. How do i get the current set point of a heating panel zone via a lua scene? i tryed this i get a error --[[ %% properties %% events %% globals --]] local PanelID = 10 local panel, status = api.get("" ..PanelID) local currentTemp = panel.properties.currentTemperature fibaro:debug(currentTemp)
  15. Dear Members, Mij heating system is consisting of a CV unit with a normal thermostat in the livingroom. Floorheating at the ground floor, livingroom and the bathroom first floor. (rest is not important). I use a wallplug to monitor the energyconsumption of the CV and made 2 scenes that switch on and of the pump of the floorheating according to the fact if the CV is active or not. This works like a charm and can be a good tip to everybody with a floor heating system since the pump of the floorheating is not consuming energy when the CV is off! Furthermore I have installed 5 electrical valves (NC) for the floorheating connected to 3 double switches by Fibaro (the 6the I use to contol the pump of the floor heating system) Then I made 2 simple time based scenes to control the valves. First scene "bathroom on" will close the valves in the livingroom at a certain time so all the warmth goes to the bathroom. Second scene "bathroom off" is time and temperature based to switch back on the heating in the livingroom. For some reason the scenes don't start everyday but most of the days they do. Anybody a clue what is wrong? Then I would like to make a scene that will close the valves when the CV is turned off but I am afraid that this will interphere whith my current scenes. Anybody a suggestion? Any help would be appriciated!
  16. Fibaro/Users, Will there be an update where you can override Cooling Control in the 'Climate' function of the mobile application? I recently integrated some AC units and must admit I was surprised there is no functionality in the current version, which is not a great solution from my perspective. I have found there are VD alternatives but this is to technical for clients when they can clearly see a 'climate' function. Thanks,
  17. Hi, I have 6 x MCO MH8-FC thermostat fan controller on a multizone setup with and one FGS-222 relay for starting central gas boiler. I am new to Fibaro world and I want to learn but the winter already started and I need my heating system to work . I have tried to associate the thermostat with the relay but not working. I someone can help me how to set up the system or at least some guide, please! Thank you in advance.
  18. In the GUI V4.143 the holiday mode and manual modes are working (heating panel) But when I select holiday mode or manual mode on the iphone and press save then it doesn't but it in holiday mode or manual mode. it goes back to the same settings as before (scheduled time) Does anybody has the same issue?
  19. I´m trying to control a waterbased underfloor heating system with 4 24v DC actuators connected to a LHC5020 (general i/o from www.logichome.dk) using Danfoss RSZ. I´m useing HC2 (4.140) . Do I really have to use the App on my phone/tablet to to turn up, or down, the heating in my livingroom? If there it is recomended to substitute either the LHC or danfoss RSZ with something else I would appriciate if somebody could recomend anbetter solution Thomas
  20. Hi Im confused on how to setup multi zone heating and whether I can actually achieve what I want with the kit I have! Ultimately I want each room to have its own set temperature during different points of the day, if all rooms are at target temperature then the boiler switches off, if any rooms fall below target temperature the boiler turns on. I have the following in each room: Danfoss Rad valve Fibaro motion sensor On the boiler I have a relay fitted. Im not really too sure where to even start with setting this up, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Also do the Danfoss devices control the temperature of the radiator on their own, without set up? I.e. if my living room valve is set to 20c and the room is 21 then the Danfoss closes the valve, once it drops to 19 it opens again. Also can you set the danfoss' to have a different temperature at different points of the day through the heating panel? I.e. kids playroom 08:00 - 19:00 @ 22c outside of these time 16c An idiots guide to setting up heating would be appreciated!
  21. Hi, Iḿ fairly new to programming Fibaro HC so I would very much appreciate some assistance from the Fibaro community. Iǘe set up a HC2 4.131 in a summer-cabin built up from four small wooden houses. two of which have their own bathroom with underfloor heating controlled by Thermofloor Multireg. In the living rooms I have used Fibaro wallplugs with aeonlabs multisensor together for controlling electric wall-mounted heaters. When adding the wallplug to the system the setting for "Controlled Device" default to lighting. Does this parameter affect the ability to make the wallplug a suitable component to be a part of a heating panel? Will AeonLabs Smart Switch have an option to set the "Controlled Device" to some sort of heating appliance? Is there a VD thermostat, made up from wall plugs and multisensors, available for download? Thank You
  22. Hi I'm trying to give my plumber confidence that we can use Fibaro relays to control central heating. We're going to have 3 under floor heating zones downstairs, each with a [HeatIt] z-wave thermostat, and 6 radiators upstairs, each with a [Popp] z-wave TRV. I found Adam Bewsher's guidance here: http://www.fibarouk.co.uk/resources/WiringDiagrams/HeatingControl-3xDualRelay.pdf But the plumber pointed out that it only refers to a single thermostat. Could somebody perhaps give me/him some more clues please? Many thanks
  23. I have written an enhancement scripts for boosting the heating in certain rooms based on presence. I already have a zwave boiler controller, and LC-13 radiators with a scripted running base heating scene.. The purpose of this is for certain rooms that meet the following criteria:- 1. Don't need to be heated to comfort level all the time in the heating panel 2. Presence is detected, and the user tends to be in the room for a good amount of time. 2 initial rooms for me are Study and Living Room I wrote it based on tabulated data, so I could just add additional information into the tables for inclusion, but my lua was "stretched" and there are a lot of loops in loops... it runs fine, but I wondered if anyone wanted to demonstrate how it SHOULD be written or if you want to use it, and you have radiator set points you would like to boost, feel free... heating_enhancement.txt
  24. One of my Danfoss LC 13 valves says at regulary base "Device is not awake", "Transmit failed". It works fine in the heating panel and also manually no problems. Any ideas ? I changed the batteries already without success.....
  25. Hi, I am considering HCL to replace my VeraLite, which suddenly went dead... Majority of tasks I expect are simple, so HCL would satisfy this. But I have a bit complex one with heating: I currently have 8 thermostats in different rooms. Those are working indepently based on their program using scenes. For instance: Living rooms temperature is during Weekend from 7:00 to 20:00 is 22 degrees and from 20:00 to 7:00 19 degrees and 22 degrees from 16:00 to 20:00 + 19 degrees from 20:00 to 16:00 during Working day. Similarly for bedroom, bathroom, etc. So far I understand HCL would support this. However, I am using something like multiple button for defining modes like Home, Holiday, Weekend off, etc. This is the first selection and based on this above described scenes are running. So the sample with the Living room applies for Home, but for Holidays the temperature is 15 degrees, for Weekend off 17 degrees till Sunday 15:00 and 22 degrees after. Is HCL relativelly easily able to manage this? I am not a programmer and I am using PLEG in Vera, but how it is this solveable in HCL? HC2 is 2x more expensive than HCL and HCL is 2x expensive than Vera, so it is my concern...
