Question

Hi guys,

Has anyone a manual how to connect the HRT4-ZW to a fibaro 1x3kW switch and control it with the HC2? I can connect it with the fibaroswitch and i can connect it with the HC2, but not both the same time, anyone has any idea?

Grtz Emiel

Dear Sir!

There is dedicated module to operate with the Horstmann (ASR-ZW). We are compatibile with HRT4-ZW, but right now there will be problem to operate from horstmann and control from fibaro module. We didn't make such test, but You can try to associate Horstmann HRT4-ZW with our module. There is possibility that it will works fine. I hope we will add this functionality in next software updates.

Hello,

I'm new on this forum, but, as I can see, all users have a lack (or better to say absence) of technical support from Fibaro side.

Guys, can you implement good support for one and only european wall thermostat?

It's a big problem?

Are you have a small amount of requests for that?

We all have buy expensive eqipment and want to use that simply and reliable.

Instead of that I must make some lab in house for bug tracking.

I've read a lot of info to make a simple thing run - HRT4 in assoc with FGS221.

Even for correct recognize FGS221 your HC2 must be reset to default settings and then forced to update from 1.042 to 1.042! You cannot implement correct support even for your devices?

By the way, yhour new recovery 1.038 stunning on first step "Searching of system drive" and not working!

But, at the end I cannot see and control themperature remotely from HC2, only from HRT4. In the HC2 interface I have very different numbers and buggy unreliable control.

Please, give me straight answer - the date, when HRT4 will be fully implemented?

Instead of make some promises regarding new products, you better make "old" fully functional.

In other case, please, return money for my HC, which is useless in current software state.

I've bought Vera Lite and test this devices on it - everything is working...

It's a shame for you to have such bad development state and no support on core of your system....

I'll waiting of your answer asap.

giz, Sander,

As I said in other posts - this device will be fully supported in early december - we need to modificate protocol especially for this device because it was not designed to work with any controller.

giz,

Please remeber that forum was mostly designed by users for users, if you want 100% PRO support please contact us via e-mail or phone.

Not sure what specific problem is being described as non-support or what @Krystian says is not supported. I have an HRT4-ZW thermostat, together the Horstmann ASR-ZW single channel relay module. Both are recognised and supported by HC2. The correct images come up. I can adjust the Thermostat SetPoint from HC2, and, I can remotely switch the ASR-ZW Single Channel Relay from the HC2. During setup I also got the Thermostat to control my lights by setting the Node ID of my study light to Association Group ID 2 (Basic On/OFF) and it switched my study light on and off when the temperature fluctuated around the setpoint. I can only conclude that the HRT4-ZW would quite happily control any ZWave device that supports both Basic On/OFF commands (Group ID 2) as well as the more specialised Themostat On/Off (Group ID 1).

The good thing is that you don't have to rely on the HC2 to make any of this happen, apart from the configuration of the thermostat. After that, they operate independently of the HC2.

Note: I do have another problem with my setup, but I'll go into that on another post.

WITAM FIBARO!

My Polish isn't so good, and i will go on English.

I'll repeat - EARLY DECEMBER is ENDED!

When you'll release something really functional, instead of buggy beta 3 (or 123, doesn't matter, I'll never install it)?

Also, if you need help with translation Android app in english or russian, I can help you.

It's a big deal to do such simple thing?

Pozdrawiam

PS Android app is translated... )))

Krystian,

Still waiting for you to support the HTR4-ZW.

I installed the latest software version 3.517 and there is still no fully support for it.

I spent a lot of money on your system and want to support my custemers to install it

You have been keeping us for almost a year on hold and our (and many byers from your product) patiens has been tested to long

Give them a little credit please ....

I can asure you that they've been working very hard the past few months.

I'm running last stable version and it works like a charm.

Why do you have problems with your HRT4 and others don't ?

No, i don't have any relations with Fibaro, i'm just a user of this nice product.

I wish you all the best with your new Vera. (I sold mine

Hi Piet,

Can you post the actual issues you have. Plenty of users of this comunity are running these and I have responded to a few PMs to get people going.

The only thing that does not report yet to HC2 from HRT4-ZW is the battery monitoring. Other than that they are working perfectly when installed correctly.

Hi giz,

I am using in the heating panel on 3.517 release. I had an issue or two on a couple of the beta releases but it is working well now.

If there is still an issue, 0000267 is the record on Bugzila and it is easy to re-open so we get a fix.

What issues are you getting so I can watch out for them rather than having a cold house surprise one day soon?

deanrparry,

I have temperature schedule in heating panel and 1 room included in zone.

Doesn't work. Absolutely. I set it 1 week ago and watching all the time.

I'm electronic engineer.

I have 8 HRT4-ZW installed since 1.032 version.

No problem, with them, because I've associated them with fibaro 2x1,5 kW switches.

Now installed version 3.517

But... without heating schedule, i am afraid
