Question

Dear users. 4.5 is out for some time. What is your experience with it? Has it solved the issues with HC (eg. frequent unnecessary calibrations)? Is this device more reliable now?

I am on 4.530. If you are not, please do not upgrade:

- Devices can become unconfigured

- Associations can become corrupted

- New devices can be a problem to include

- Acces, usernames and passwords can become corrupted.

- Making a backup can become impossible

- z-wave routing can become corrupted, resulting in devices not being reached

 

And a lot more problems have been reported by users. Did you read the forum?

 

He is asking info about firmware 4.5 of the heat controller not HC 4.530. Btw ... I’m using 4.531 without any problems.

    Hello,

    I use FW 4.5 since release. I have 5 heat controllers with external sensors, HC2 with latest FW.

    I found these errors:

    1.  Head calibration - method of calibration has been changed. With FW 4.4 heat controller after calibration closed my valves without problems, with no flow. Now after calibration are my heating radiators hot even if the temperatures in rooms are very higher else set temperature. Head cannot close the valves with no flow.
    2.  Sync error occurs on some heads, it's new to me.

    Could anyone share experiences about 4.5 software in heat controller? Maybe do you have any information about newer firmware? 

     

    For me the main concern is if heat controller working properly at all. I have 4.3fw and heat controller works completelly wrong. Set temp=17C, room temp=24 and heat controller keep valve open... 

     

    Anythnig change with 4.5?

    My Fibaro Heat controllers fail to update. I tried several times. Anyone an idea on how to solve this bug-loaded product?
