direct connections ( cabeled ) on Zipatile not completely working and confusion on connection sheme
I've got a few questions about the dry out and the external temperature sensor on the Zipatile.
I received the tile last week and I tried to connect the dry out 1 and 2 to my centralized Blind Controller to open the window binds in case of emergency ( fire -> open ; intruder -> lock all blinds ).
This is not working;
when dry out 2 is activated I hear a click inside the tile and my controller reacts on the closed contact while opening the blinds.
when dry out 1 is activated I hear nothing and I don't see any reaction .
If I interchange both cables the lockdown function is working but not the open function; so it seems to be a problem with dry out 1.
Is there any hint to activate the dry out 1 or did I get a 'Monday model' with a brocken relay ?
Another question concers the external temp. sensor.
I've got a DS18B20 and this one has 3 connectors ( + , - , signal ). The input on the tile has just 2 connectors ( + , - ). Is the signal not needed? or must I connect it differently ? the documentation is a bit poor in these details ...
By the way : it would be nice if somewhere in the documentation a description will explain what size of cables can fit in the connectors and how to get them in or out; we found that pushing the cable gets them in but I still didn't find out if I need to push or pull the small knob on the top side of the contacts to get the cable out again. Even my electrician friends did not found it. It seems that here in Luxemburg these connectors are not well know.
