Thermostat Pro

Chris shared this thanks 5 months ago

Hello,

I am new with Zipato and I am trying to setup a thermostat to control the central heating of a holiday house. I would purchase the virtual Thermostat Pro and setup the ZWave dongle on the heater.

I setup the Virtual Thermostat pro and it act on the heater perfectly.

Now I would like to avoid that user play with the temperature. my fist question is : can I block Virtuasl Thermostat value modification for one specific user?

Then, I am trying to use the "Away" and "Confort" program. With a virtual switch button I would like to be able to change from "Away" to "Confort" the day before I am going there and back to "Away" when I am leaving. So my second question is : how to create a button to activate the preset value (Away/Confort)?

Thank you for your help

Chris.

Hi Chris,


"Now I would like to avoid that user play with the temperature. my fist question is : can I block Virtuasl Thermostat value modification for one specific user?" No, this is not possible.


"So my second question is : how to create a button to activate the preset value (Away/Confort)?" Create a rule and use the set action to switch the preset.


Cheers, Alexander

Alexander,


Thank you. one more question. I create this rule but the switch seems to have no effect. witch type of switch should I use? OnOff Switch? OnOff Switch meter? Generic OnOff? ...?

In my rule the switch seems not to get initiated when I change status I am doing something wrong?

Thank you in advance

Chris

Maybe you need to switch the hold and preset away. To have it fixed to the temperature of preset away.


But it should work. (don't forget to sync the rule with your controller!?)

Hello

I asked a question 10 days ago about the purchase of thermostats pro but I still have no answer. I see Chris has bought some. What are the different credits ? 25 credits for example, how can you use the thermostats for how long? 1 month ? and the 25 creatures? and the 100 credits?

thank you for your reply
