[userModule] Advanced Thermostat Device (Updated 2016/12/05)

Post by maros » 20 Feb 2016 20:03

This module combines multiple actors and temperature sensors to form a thermostat. The actor will be turned on or off depending on the temperatures measured and a setpoint defined by a virtual thermostat.

Compared to the default "Thermostat Device" module this module adds additional functionality
  • Check for opened windows and inhibit heating while windows are opened
  • Ability to reuse existing thermostat modules (will only create a virtual thermostat if none is configured)
  • Add multiple temperature sensors
  • Add multiple heating actors
  • Optionally ensure max heating interval length, and minimum breaks between heating cycles to prevent overheating (ideal for infrared heating panels)
  • Switch to disable thermostat operation entirely
Tested with Z-Way version v2.1.1
