@balmli I use the VThermo to control my Mill ovens where I have set “Thermostat” under “Control devices in the same zone”. This works mostly fine. As this is in my cabin, I reduce the temperature down to 8 degC when we are not there.
What I observe is that some times the setpoint VThermo sets for my Mill ovens are to low for the Mill oven, resulting in that the oven setpoint is not reduced hence the oven steers towards the previous setpoint. Typical example is that the room temp (measured with a Aqara Temp and Humid sensor) is below the setpoint, 8 degC, the setpoint set on the Mill oven might be set as low as 4 degC. It seems that the lowest temp that Mill accepts is 5 degC.
So to the question, is it possible to set a low (and maybe high) level for the temperature VThermo set for the thermostats is steers?
I have been using vThermo for more than a year now, almost working perfectly. My primary usage is controlling cables in concrete floor where I don’t have sensor. Instead I am using a Aqara close to the floor and vThermo to control the switch. The only issue I have discovered during the use is it sometimes get “out of sync”, sometimes very warm or sometimes cold. This happens if there is a manual action on the switch. I think the solution to this is to introduce an extra check on temp every x minutes/hours. Please consider this @balmli
VHumidity isn’t registering my aqara temp/humidity sensor. it is in the same room but isn’t reading its properties. any suggestions? I had this working for years but with the new Homey Pro install it broke.
Using 1.10.2 with Homey Pro 2023 I discovered one of my zones where heating, even if the temperature was way above the set point.
From the event on the VThermo I can see it’s entering Idle state at 10.32 today
From the event on the Wall Switch I can see it was turned on at 10:25, matching the Active state, but the Idle state seems to got lost, so I dicovered it and manually shut off the swich at 14:37
Maybe the VThermo should discover this and repeating to turn off the Switch ? The Insigth from the Temp sensor is getting the increased temperature, and VThermo should be able to try a little harder to turn off the switch …
Hi @balmli ,
This is weird, I add a VThermo thermostat device, open settings, change the first parameter from average to newest, press save,… boom… Invalid capability: target_temperature…
I am also on rc61
