Heat zone or Virtual thermostat device in Home Center 3


Question

Hello, i have Fibaro RGBW 2 module and 24V heating valves, normally closed (need voltage to open), how to add it to Climate Zones or Virtual Thermostat device? It don't shown in possible devices.

is that possible to use On-Off virtual device connected to dimmer state or something like that.

Hi @miha89,

 

You need to use switching devices (I recommend Heatit Z-Water) for linked devices. If you want to use RGBW controller you would need to add binary switch QA (just as virtual switch, no programming needed) and make linked device and scene if binary switch is ON, then turn on RGBW controller and set channel x to 99 and same for off state. Or program thermostat QA to keep it in "one" QA.

 

Regards,

Jakub

Hello, Jakub

 

I suppose that relay switches have much less reliable in operation because it have a limited resource of mechanical switching on and off (it can 50+ switches per day), moreover, they do not have a soft start which affects the durability of thermal heads and finally one rgbw has 4 outputs, which gives more climatic zones for less cost. 

 

So i think QA thermostat is the best solution. Will it use Climate Panel for mobile app widget? Is there are done climatic QA file?

 

Thank you in advance!

They are not less reliable. We use them quite often with Mohlenhoff TRV. Those have some Wax in them that uses Heat produced by 230V to expand it, so relays are great for it and it introduces delay so relays in switches are ok.

You would have to add it to climate panel first.

Unfortunatelly I do not have one. I wrote that as one of the solutions.
