ZXT-600 and HC3

Question

Hi,

I'm trying to configure ZXT-600 with my HC3 but I have some challenges/bugs. 

*Disclaimer - at this moment I'dont want to use any specific AC. I'm doing this as a "dry run" before final installation

 

1. HC3 without any problem recognize ZXT-600 "devices". ZXT-600 is wotking wit USB power adaptor.

2. I'm trying to configure ZXT-600 based on manual (

)  . At the beginning I added two parameters:

- 27 [Set IR Code number from built-in code library 27 (0x1B)] - I choose one of the Mitsubishi

- 30 [Set Auto Report Condition Trigger By Room Temperature change 30 (0x1E)] - I choose value what menas based on manual "Auto report if room temperature is different from last report. 1(0x01) = 1°F (0.5°C)"

ZXT-600 has been assigned to room Kuchnia/Kitchen (details on below print screen)

I used iOS Fibaro application for HC3 and it looks that HC3/ZXT-600 doesn't work ijn proper way.

 

1. Even when I'm using parameter "Auto report if room temperature is different from last report. 1(0x01) = 1°F (0.5°C)" temperature doesn't change. Mobile application and Fibaro HC3 dashboard present one value (updated during power adaptor has been detached/attached) 

Is it a bug, malfunction or my lack of knowledge how to configure devices ?

 

2. I assume that should be possible send IR commnad (on, off, cooling, heating ...) from mobile application->HC3->ZXT-600 to air condition IR receiver. Maybe I'm wrong or I miss something. Unfortunatelly I haven't or I can't see any places in mobile/web applications where I could be do this :( 

 

Please let me know about your thoughts/experience.

 

Thank you ;)

Hello. If ZXT-600 operates the same way as ZXT-120, which I have, it will not report temperature by itself. You need to enable global polling for it.

Current version of mobile app doesn't support most third-party thermostats, that's why you don't see your device there. People say the next version will add this support. So you can wait, or you can make a Quick App to control ZXT via it.

 

Edited:

I've noticed on your screenshot that polling is enabled. Another guess: ZXT-120's precision is only 1 degree C. Maybe it's the same for ZXT600? So when you set 0,5 it can't operate on this level? I can't say for sure unfortunately because I only have ZXT120, which is similar, but not exactly the same. I have actually turned off temperature sensors on it, because it's close to useless due to bad implementation.

    I checked earlier global pooling as well, but it looks doesn't work.
    It looks that I bought Fibaro product in very very alpha version :(

    HC3 is definitely out half-baked IMHO, but I wouldn’t put all the blame on Fibaro in your case, because Remotec devices are also of a bit strange kind I suppose :) I would try putting that auto report parameter to its default state and check if it changes anything. 
    But the situation with the new app is quite bad, I agree. It’s been in pretty bad shape from the first release and the steps they are making with each update are minuscule unfortunately. At this pace they will probably catch up with the old app in terms of functionality in 2-3 years I afraid :)

    Sorry, I’m out of ideas. Maybe there is someone on the forum, who also has ZXT 600 and can help.
