  1. 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

    Change heating panel

    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
  3. 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.
  4. Do you use the Danfoss Z-Wave RS Room Sensor (014G0160) with your HCL-Gateway? If so please reply how it works. Can you adjust the room temperature with it?

    HC2 - Dashboard - HEating

    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

    SRT 321 programming fails

    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.
  7. Problem description: Cannot control or adjust the room temperature with the Danfoss Z-Wave RS Room Sensor. The settings in the radiator thermostat are not updated (no change). System setup: Danfoss Living connect Z radiator thermostat (014G0013) is installed in the living room. Temperature is controlled by the Home Center Light (4.061 Beta) via Heating panel and schedule heating programs. Works alright. Manual adjustment directly on the radiator thermostat and via HCL (Devices) is also working fine. All is good. I have bought new Danfoss Z-Wave RS Room Sensor (014G0160) and would like to adjust the living room temperature with it. Device is installed and shown in the living room. Manual adjustment via buttons (up / down) of the room sensor is shown in the HCL interface. However the settings from the Room Sensor are not taken over by the radiator thermostat. No update. The room sensor is not linked to the radiator thermostat. The radiator thermostat does not care about the room sensor settings. Configuration Room Sensor: Parameter 6 Set-point control function: Enabled Parameter 7 Temporarily override scheduler: Enabled Parameter 8 Set-point type in Thermostat_Setpoint_Reports: Heating What is wrong? How can I use the Room Sensor to temporarily manually adjust the room temperature?

    cooling panel in app

    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?
  9. 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!

    Remotec ZXT-120 & HC2

    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?

    Cooling Override on Mobile

    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,
  13. 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?

    Hydronic Heating

    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
  15. 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!

    Heating panel and linked devices

    Hi... let me describe the situation: I have three bathrooms with three heaters connected to one hot water circulation pump (one heating area). The three bathrooms are in three different floors while the thermostat is only in one bathroom. I would like to control the temperature of the three bathrooms individually... for this reason I bought the following: - 3 Danfoss LC13 - 3 Fibaro motion sensors - 1 Fibaro switch I have installed the 3 LC13 to the heaters and the 3 Fibaro motion sensors in the bathrooms. As regards the switch.. I have installed it instead the of the thermostat thus to start and stop the hot water circulation pump and boiler. I have created 3 heating schedules for the 3 bathrooms in HC2 heating planel. Here the problem: I have created 3 separated linked devices in order to control the switch, in particular: - First linked device between temperature sensor in first floor bathroom and pump switch - Second linked device between temperature sensor in ground floor bathroom and pump switch - Third linked device between temperature sensor in underground floor bathroom and pump switch This configuration doesn't works at all.. because when one sensor order to switch on the heating pump.. immediatelly after the switch is turned off by the other one. Actually.. in order to avoid this problem.. I'm controlling the pump with three different switches (connected in parallel) which is absolutely expensive and crazy solution. Could you suggest me another solution? Should I have to use scenes instead of heating panel schedules? Thank you Very Much in advance

    Wallplug VD thermostat

    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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Hi, I know this has been discussed before but i don't recall having an answer from Fibaro yet. So i post it again in hope that someone will look over it: I have a lot of danfoss radiator valves LC13 and they work just fine. Heating panel is configured and does what it should. BUT, i also have a lot of Danfoss Room Sensors, one for each heating zone. They are set as main thermostat in the room, templates are ok and all parameters are there. What it SHOULD DO : - heating panel should adjust the LC13 according to the ambient temperature provided by the Room Sensor - works - when manually choosing a new temperature and interval from the Room Sensor by pressing the buttons on the device, it should update also the LC13's in the same heating zone - does NOT work. Any manual modification of the set temp and time on the Room Sensor does not get passed on to the Valves in the same heating zone. I have a workaround using some LUA code which transmits the set temp to the valves, but the time interval is not transferred correctly. It only adjusts the set temp of the Room Sensor in the interface. The time interval is also not set - I set on the Room Sensor a time of 3 hours and it goes to the Fibaro HC2 interface as 2 hours for example. I set it to 15 mins, it goes as 2 hours again.. As both these devices are supported for sometime, i'd like to ask someone from the FIbaro team to explain what i should do to make it work correctly - any modification on the Room Sensor to be also sent to the corresponding valves in the same heating zone. Please let me know if you need any more info.
  21. 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.....

    Would HCL manage this?

    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...

    Heating panel times

    I want to add more times into my heating panel. eg on in the morning 7.00 to 8.30am, off for the day, on at 16.00- to18.00 then off again until. 22.00 to 23.30. Is there a way to do that in the heating panel? I'm short of one time period as it is. thx.

    Multiroom Heating Controller

    Multiroom Heating Controller My project was to write a multiroom heating controller to give indipendant control over each room using as much as the built in functionality of Home Center 2 as possible. Starting point: Create multiple rooms in the heating panel in accordance with the Advanced User Guide section 5.9.3 I did have some code to enumerate from these panels and get the following from the JSON files http://yourHC2IPAddress/api/panels/heating & http://yourHC2IPAddress/api/rooms Room Name, Room "Default Thermostat" & Default Temperature Sensor As I failed to add them to my array roomsArray I abandoned this for the time being. (Any developers want to help here??? You add your rooms to the roomsArray, set the HeatON and HeatOff as you need them these will stop overshoot of Temperature. - Any developers want to turn this in to a heating PID? I have been running this now for a couple of months without problem, and even moved it to other HC2 controllers. Make a LUA Scene, drope the code in, change the Variables and away you go. My setup and all I have tested with: HC2 v 4.1x Danfoss LC-13 TRVs these control the radiators and also act as a Thermostat for any room that does not have a external Thermostat Fibaro or AEON Multisensor for Temperature Sensor Secure SRT321 Wall thermostat & Secure HRT boiler Receiver - This was so i could put in manual mode if anything went wrong Happy to have suggeestions and additions!

  25. Hi everyone, I need help... so if anybody can give me a hand I will be very grateful. I have following hardware: Home Center Lite, Remotec ZXT-120 and Air condition unit. I am able to control AC through Fibaro app, everything is OK with that. I can remotely turn AC ON, OFF and select heating and temperature. Challenge: The AC unit accepts only 16 degrees as minimun heating value. The cabin is only used time to time and mostly it is unoccupied and temperature inside should be only 5 degrees. When arriving to cabin temperature should be increased to 21 degrees through Fibaro app. How this could be solved with HCL ? I can make following scenes 1. a block scene which will turn up AC to heat when temperature in cabin is below 5 degrees. 2. second block scene 2 which will turn off AC from heating when temperature is 7 degrees. 3. third block scene which will turn up AC to heat 21 degrees. But the second scene will then turn off the third scene. (loop) I really need help with this one...
