Hello, I want to connect the thermostat (Heatit or MCO HOME MH7H) to FIBARO HC2, I want to control it using the heating panel. On the thermostat I set the manual mode to be controlled via FIBARO. Adding (MH7H or Heatit) to HC2 was ok, 4 objects were added. I put them in the room, created a heating zone for the room on the heating panels, I assigned the appropriate thermometer to the zone. Association Group 1 is set to the default setting. The control of the heating via the set FIBARO heating panel initially works OK. If the temperature varies with time in heating panel, the setting also changes to the thermostat. However, there is a problem - when I manually change the temperature on the thermostat during the heating schedule time, the thermostat will stop responding to the heating plan! This situation may occur when I come home from work sooner, the heating plan is set to 18 degrees and I want to turn on the heating for several hours. I have to always enter manual temperature via APP ??? I would like to be able to set the temperature manually on the thermostat too, sometimes it's easier than a smartphone. Well, I would expect that when the next heating period comes, the thermostat will adapt to the defined heating plan ... But it does not work.
Using Netatmo as thermostat sensor
ArveSH posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi, I am complete newbie trying to get up to speed with Fibaro/Lua. I have a HC2 running 4.160, several Fibaro Dimmers, a Netatmo weatherstation with two extra indoor modules, all imported into HC2, many Philips Hue lamps (not yet imported into HC2, working on it) and a HeatIT/Multireg Z-wave thermostat for my electrical floor heating in my living room. I find the thermostat is very inaccurate and the room temperature drifts many degrees. Also it only displays setpoint temperature, not actual temperature so I am not sure which tempeature the thermostat "sees". I have a Netatmo weatherstation indoor module in my livingroom that I would like to be used as thermostat room sensor instead of the built-in sensor, alternatively use the average between the two sensors. What is the simplest way of achieving this? I have recently chosen the Netatmo as the main room temperature sensor, but I assume this does not achieve what I want. Also I have considered creating an association between the Netatmo and the thermostat, but have not been able to find out how to do this. I tried searching forum and internet in general. Would appreciate any help the community can provide.
Room Thermostat Override
90 downloadsOverview: I have a Secure SRT321 room thermostat in my living room, and up until now the only function that it has performed is as a temperature sensor. Changing the temperature on the thermostat has had no effect. I haven't associated it with my boiler switch, as I've implemented a multi-room system. In theory, I should be able to associate the thermostat with the Danfoss LC-13 radiator valves in that room, but that doesn't seem to work. However, what I really wanted to do is to override the Heating Panel for that room. That way, any overrides will also be visible in my Heating Override Virtual Device. This scene should work with any thermostat device (including the radiator valves), but is primarily designed to work with room thermostats. When the set point temperature on the thermostat is changed, then the corresponding Heating Panel for the room that the thermostat is located in will also be updated. If the temperature that is selected is not the same as the current scheduled temperature for that room, then it will put the Heating Panel in manual mode. If it's the same as the scheduled temperature, then the Heating Panel will revert to scheduled mode. By having it update the Heating Panel, then the radiator valves in the room will also be updated. Setup required: You will need to change the list of devices ids in the Scene Header, for each of the room thermostats: --[[ %% properties 123 targetLevel 234 targetLevel --]] Ensure that you enter the device id for the thermostat and not the associated temperature sensor on the device, if there is one. You can specify a fixed override duration (the number of minutes that the Heating Panel will be overridden) by changing this variable: local overrideDurationMins = 0 -- Set to zero to override until next scheduled change However, if you leave this variable as zero, then it will override the Heating Panel until the time that the panel is next due to change, or for the Minimum Duration. The Minimum Duration can be specified here: local minimumOverrideMins = 60 -- If the duration until the next scheduled change is less than this, then use this value Set the Minimum Duration to zero if you don't want use this feature. You might need to increase the number of scenes that can run concurrently by changing the Max Running Instances in the scene properties. Changing the thermostat could trigger several occurrences of this scene. If there is a limit on the number of scenes that can run, then it's possible that the final setting of the thermostat will be ignored. Code: Download it from here: Room Thermostat Override 1.0.lua
FGT-001 The Heat Controller (Radiator Thermostat)
eGuard posted a question in Heat ControllerHi Guys, So i am looking at the FGT-001 Radiator Thermostat to expand my home automation system and it has left me with some questions: 1) Is it suitable for floorheating? 2) Can the charger for the internal battery always be connected as the FGT-001 would be mounted in an impossible place 3) On each level i have the Fibaro smoke sensor which i plan to use as Temperature sensor. But there is also an optional bluetooth sensor available. As I am also looking for a solution to measure outdoor temperature, my question would be if these could also be used outdoor? Thanks for the help!
Netatmo thermostat in HCL
Supremo83 posted a question in Home Center LiteHi, I've bought a Netatmo thermostat and its relay, it's now working fine with the Netatmo APP, fully integrated in Apple HomeKit but something happens in Fibaro. I installed the plugin and did all necessary steps to bind the Netatmo account and Fibaro, I see the message Your account is connected in Fibaro but no new devices are coming up. I'm just wondering if Fibaro is not supporting Netatmo thermostat, or whether I shall code something in the Netatmo APP program site. Any clue or hint to solve the issue? Thanks!
Danfoss thermostat protection not working
pos posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devices
Derek1948 posted a question in Home Center LiteI have my heating panel set up to control the timing of 4 zones. Each zone has a SRT321 themostat connected to Fibaro relays which switch electric heaters. The timing from the heating panel works perfectly. Also, if I need to deviate from that pattern I can successfully do that through the heating panel manual setup (e.g. change the setting to 180 for 3 hours. I can also physically change the thermostat to alter the set temperature for a chosen number of hours. All fine. However, if I change the temperature up on the HCL interface, although the message is successfully sent to the thermostats, the relay switches on for only a brief period (seconds) then reverts to off. This is becomes a real problem if I want to change the temperature 'at a distance', e.g. through the android app. What do you think is happening?
Fibaro Radiator Heat Controller with external thermostat (e.g. Nest)
kristofre posted a question in Heat ControllerHi, I am looking at buying a couple of Fibaro Heat Controllers to remotely control my radiators and create schedules. I wanted to know how this would work in conjunction with an external thermostat such as a Nest. I use the Nest to control my boiler, regardless of the availability of the official Fibaro plugin for Nest (while we are on the subject: what is happening with that). So my question: If I use the Nest to control my boiler and it has switched itself off, does it matter if the Fibaro Heat Controllers are still "On"? With a regular valve this does not matter but I was wondering if there is something particular here. Thanks in advance for your feedback! KR, Kristof And PS: Nest plugin!!!
Using normally opened (NO) radiator heads with Heat Panel
cashe posted a question in Home Center 2Hi, everybody! How do I use Heating Panel linked with a relay connected with normally opened (NO) head (Danfoss TWA-K NO 088H3143, for example)? I have to link some temperature sensor with some relay that will turn ON the heater. But in case of NO heads, it will mean valve overlapping so radiator will be cooled but not heated. How can I change the working logic? Is it possible maybe to add some option (like as "device must be OFF while until the desired temperature will be reached") in near future firmware update? Thanks in advance.
Wallplug VD thermostat
thomas.hvindenhaug posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi, 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
Change Scale of Dimmer (Vera)
Bobone posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi! I am a newbie and sorry for asking questions that may be answered elsewhere. I want to control the temperature level of an old boiler by changing the Resistance of an input to it. Ideally, I could use a Fibaro dimmer(?) to do this by controling a pontentiometer (not sure if this will work). Two questions: - how can I change the scale from "%" to "degrees Celsius" as viewed in my Vera Plus controller. Reprogramming of Fibaro or Vera? Luup programming? - what is the output of the dimmer? Less Tension or Current(?) in Rx dimming mode? Any ideas? Any other component that you would suggest. Can the Fibaro Relay be made into a dimmer? Thanks, Bengt ADMIN NOTE: No need to apologize for asking a question. The Forum is for asking questions As there is no solution offered by you I moved the topic to a correct forum. Please, read descriptions of forums before posting.
Direct association set, associated device won't switch on
IndianaJonas posted a question in Home Center 2Good morning everyone! I have set up several rooms in the house with a thermostat and a wall plug directly associated, the thermostat controlling the wall plug. The thermostat is also controlled by a heating panel, but that's a different topic and works fine. Yesterday one wall plug stopped communicating with the HC2, and the thermostat would not control it either, it was just always on and the room got rather warm! I tried to remove the wall plug and add it again, and do the association again, everything seems fine, but the thermostat WILL NOT control the wall plug... I am totally lost, I worked with this for several hours yesterday, tried factory reset on the thermostat and the wall plug, to no avail... The only difference I can actually see is that one wall plug displays the serial no. and the other doesn't, see picture. Can this possibly affect my setup??? I am grateful for any help! Kind regards, Jonas
Secure SRT323 thermostat: manual wake up
Ulf100 posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesFrom time to time my SRT323 loses the network connection and the display looks s follows: How can I reconnect the thermostat to my network? I have not found a way how to wake it up manually..... So far, I always have to exclude the SRT323 and include it again which is quite cumbersome. Does anybody have a solution?
Brumacom posted a topic in FIBARO ProductsHello, I'm looking for a simple thermostat function. I have a Fibaro Motion sensor for measuring temperature and I have electrical heating connected to a Switch relay. I have created a heating panel, but this needs to be connected to a thermostat which I don't have. Now I have seen that there was a function "Linking Devices" for heating, but this function isn't there in 4.110. It is replaced with associations, but this is not the solution. Can somebody help me please? Yannick

Virtual thermostat widget personalization - Any help?
freespirits posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi everyone, I'm fairly new in the Fibaro/LUA programming scene and I'm looking for some help to create a virtual device. So far I was able to create a Virtual Device that will allow me to turn on a specific thermostatic valve based on a set Temperature and Room Temperature. I created this panel using LUA scripts: It's made of: - A Label that contains both the desired and actual room temperature - Various buttons that allow you to quickly change the desired room temperature It's a tiny panel that has all the functions I need and that I could personalize easily furthermore. In Fibaro Home screen the virtual device is shown this way: Which is... sort of good... however it's not really capable of various functions. If I understood correctly the elements that will be shown on the widget are those that have the "Main" radio button selected in the Advanced configuration: For example I set "main" the Label and the "+" button: So... my questions are: 1- Is there a way to show more than a single button in the widget shown in Home page (just like Fibaro and other devices widgets do: ex. : 2- Is there a way to personalize the text/label of those buttons? Now the only available button has a "power on" symbol and can't be changed. 3- What's the meaning of the "favourite" flag? I tried selecting it but nothing seems to change. I hope you guys can help me, I'll attach the virtual device file just in case some of you can help me (still in beta and eavily personalized for my system). Thank you so much! Nicola Termostato.vfib
qubino thermostat HC2 workaround
kgeusens posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesregarding: working solution for qubino on/off thermostat in HC2 (including app integration) device: qubino on/off thermostat controller: HC2 version 4.1 issue: setting target temperature fails status: found workaround Hi all, This week I decided to replace my ugly physical wallmounted thermostats with an invisible (in wall) alternative. I decided to go for the Qubino on/off thermostat to control my electrical infloor heating based on some web-site that claimed it was compatible with the HC2. Unfortunately it does not work out of the box, but I do believe I found a work-around that hopefully can be of use for some of you. First the problems: 1. The current temperature is not visible in HC2 2. Not possible to set the desired temperature from within HC2. This seems to be caused by misinterpretation of numerical values between qubino and HC2 (more below) The Solutions: 1. read current environment temperature The qubino thermostat does not actively send updates when the temperature changes, but HC2 is able to read it when you poll the device. I simply changed the polling interval to 1 minute, and that solved the issue 2. Setting the desired temperature This is the tricky one that requires a triggered event script as workaround. The problem is that setting a value of eg "22°C" for some reason becomes set as "2.2°" (notice the decimal point). This problem does not occur when you try to set the temperature to a decimal value, eg "21.5°" does get set correctly. My workaround is based on the observation that decimal values work correctly: instead of setting a desired temp of "22" we will request a desired temp of "22.01". This will be sent to qubino who will set the temp to "22.0" because it only supports one decimal (not 2). The HC2 will notice the value change in the qubino to 22.0 (being different from 22.01 triggering a seccond change event) and update the HC2 status to 22.0 Magic Now the remaining challenge is that the iPad/iPhone app do not allow us to set a value of "22.01" in the interface. We can only pick integers such as 21, 22, ... The following event script takes care of this. It gets triggered when the value of the qubino thermostat changes (value is the setpoint for the desired heating temp). If the value is too low, I assume it's due to the misinterpretation of the desired set point, and I reformat it before setting it again. I simply convert "2.2" into "22.01" and then set that value. Here is the event script that gets triggered on a "value" change of the qubino thermostat (that's the device ID we trigger on): --[[ %% properties 352 value %% events %% globals --]] local startSource = fibaro:getSourceTrigger(); local startSourceID = tonumber(startSource["deviceID"]); local setTemp=tonumber(fibaro:getValue(startSourceID, "value")); fibaro:debug("qubino value is "..setTemp); if (tonumber(setTemp) < 4) then fibaro:debug("need to adjust Temp"); setTemp=setTemp*10+0.01; fibaro:debug("qubino corrected value is "..setTemp); fibaro:call(startSourceID, "setThermostatSetpoint", "1", setTemp); end Feedback appreciated... Cheers, Koen
VD - Slider to adjust variable / Thermostat
thotil posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHello, I thought it was time to start learning some simple lua coding. Anyhow, thought I could get some help here. I am trying to make a slider adjusting a variable that controls two different wall plugs. I want to make a slider for behaving like a thermostat. I've got two electric heating panels which is connected to two wall plugs. My thought was that if I set slider value to 21 then it would cut the power to the wall plug when netatmo reaches that temperatur. I don't really know where to begin, help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Why Danfoss thermostats are marked as dead?
midi posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesI have four Danfoss thermostats connected to HC2. I have noticed that they are marked as dead from time to time. It is probably pointless. If they wake up every 15 minutes (wake up interval set to 900 sec.) and then communicate with HC2 to set up the temperature, report battery level etc. so is there a need of checking them by HC2 every 125 sec. (standard polling time)? I think this could be the reason why they are marked as dead. So shouldn't I just set "Mark if dead" to 'No'? If I will do this the HC2 will stop to polling them every 125 sec.? What is your opinion - maybe I don't understand this in a right way? Kind Regards
Adding power usage to thermostat
strips posted a topic in Home AutomationHi, I have a Thermo-Floor / Heatit Multireg thermostat controlling my floor heating. I was disappointed that it does not support power usage. So I wonder if it would be possible to somehow add to the device with LUA or a separate virtual device that accumulates wattage for the time it was active? I have not done very much LUA coding to know if this would be possible. Is it any point at pursuing this at all? An alternative would be to use an external actuator associated with the thermostat that supports power usage. But it would be more expensive and I'm not sure there is room in the wall box. Regards Stian
Nest Thermostat setting temperature in LUA
mrtn posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi all I am trying to create a scene that changes the setpoint temperature of my Nest thermostat to 10 degrees after windows have been opened. I want the setpoint temperature to be set back to its previous setting once windows are shut. The first part is easy as I have used IFTTT with a Maker channel. But it doesn't look like it's possible to set it back to previous setting through IFTTT. I have the Nest plugin installed which works fine and when I create a new LUA scene, the only action event is 'SetMode' and looks as follows: fibaro:call(9, "setMode", "") Unfortunately there is not too much information available on this so any help would be much appreciated.
