Heating Panel - heater does not turn off



I have some problem with my heating panel and i do not find the usage of "none" temp explained anywhere. 


I guess its better explained with a screenshot. See below..  My problem is that i have a temp sensor in my garage that is paired with a wall plug connected to a space heater in my garage. This i try to control via a heating panel.


01:00-05:00 the temp is set to 6c all the other times it is set to "none"

At 01:00 the wall plug is switched on and starts heating when it reaches 6c the wall plug is switched off.. All good so far. Before 05:00 the wall plug was switched on again. The time passed 05:00 and the wallplug is still switched on and never switched off again until i noticed this at 10:30 and turned the wallplug off. The temp was then 10c.


So.. My question is, what is "none" referring to? I thought it was "do not heat" during these times? Can't i use the heating panel in this way?


And yes, i know that the temp sensor is too close to the heating source as you can see in the temp chart.. I will fix that when i got it to work correctly :D

  • To answer my own question since no one seems to know this.. If you set the setting to "none" it will continue to keep the state the outlet was in when it left the other zone. So if the outlet was on after 05:00 it will be on for the entire day until 01:00.. Witch i noticed because the garage were very hot..... So "none" does not mean "turned off" :( That sucks...

    I also expected that "None" means switched off, but unfortunately it seems to mean "not to care about state of devices".

    It could be better if developers add "switched off" to zone temperature list, because otherwise in order to swich off heating in that zone you have to delete zone.

    Could we have a fix for this issue Fibaro? Unless its fixed already? If it is it would be good to know.. Since now i have changed all the "none" entries to 4c instead to mitigate the issue. None could not really be used now since it does not mean "off" it means "dont change the state" and that is not how it is supposed to be i guess...
