    No, unfortunately virtual devices are not yet part of the iPhone/ipad app.

    mmmh that could be the case....

    You could change the scene so it triggers based on a variable change. Make the button change the value on on and off

  • Well That last trick you told me did the trick.....

    i have put on the variable button the code

    fibaro:setGlobal("XXXXXX", "VALUE")

    thus having only one scene running and behave like i want it to based on a variable change that is set by the virtual device.....

    getting better and better each day.... thank you very much for the help.....

    my life would have been much much easier IF there was a way to add custom temperatures in HEATING PANEL....... and not the temperatures that fibaro thinks it is good to have......

    About the temp

    You want to get 21,7 instead of 21,5?

  • you mean at the heating panel??

    no i want temps higher than 33.5......

    because it is HEATING panel not climate panel.....

    thats the way i see things at least

    that would be a very nice feature to have temps that we need to set and adjust....

  • Hello Mr. Socha

    Yes i know ..... i have done this with help from other forum memebers... which are really nice people..... i have had Zero knowlage of lua coding but with their help i have managed to do this little lua code...

    Please login or register to see this code.

    then i had to make a variable temps... first temp was 0 then 50 52 54 55 60

    then i had to make a virtual button where i could change the value of the target temperature.... one of the buttons ( OFF ) has value of 0 so it is like having the pumps to OFF state.....

    BUT wait.....

    why did i have to go all the way to programming and vreating virtual buttons and make my life so complicate when you can just add to heating panel custom temperatures..... and let alone i cannot see the virtual buttons on the iphone interface..... So i have to login with my pc just to push a virtual button and set the temperature......

    does this sound little bit weird...???

    i think that the heating panel needs some improvement here.... thats all i'm saying...

    or maybe i'm the only one out there that wants to do this thing...
